Subject: Accept overflow on Netscape Enterprise Server 3.6 SP2   
  
Hi,  
  
I found a vulnerability in "Enterprise 3.6 SP 2 SSL Handshake fix"..  
I sent a malformed URL to the server and its service was dead.  
  
  
Its URL is following...  
  
  
GET / HTTP/1.0  
Accept: aaaaaaaaaaaaaa...2000byte/gif  
  
  
Ofcourse you must be able to execute small code you like with  
"long Accept" command(just like htr problem on IIS).  
  
  
I've reported this to Netscape on 31st Aug. They've just  
finished making the patch(maybe SP3). It must be released soon.  
I'm gonna post this to BUGTRAQ after they release the patch, but  
someone posted it to some other mailing lists. So I decided  
to post it to here today.  
  
  
Thanks,
