DeleGate 7.8.x/8.x SSLway Filter Remote Stack Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability. CVE-2004-2003. Dos exploit for linux platform


A remote buffer overflow vulnerability has been reported to affect the DeleGate SSLway filter. This filter is employed when DeleGate is applying SSL to arbitrary protocols.

The issue presents itself due to a lack of sufficient boundary checks performed, when copying user-supplied certificate field contents.

A remote attacker may potentially exploit this issue, to overwrite the return address of the static ssl_prcert() function. The attacker may corrupt any other saved value that is within 768 bytes from the end of the affected buffers.

It has been reported that the X509_NAME_oneline() function will perform character conversion on characters below '0x20' or above '0x7e'; this may hinder exploitation of this issue.
