=============== 1) Introduction ===============

WAC is a commercial SSH/telnet server for Windows.

======= 2) Bugs =======

A] telnet option heap overflow

The WAC server is vulnerable to a heap overflow exploitable through the usage of options longer than 260 bytes.

Note: this bug was wrongly reported by me as a crash and with a wrong server version one month ago.

B] SSH packet heap overflow

The server is affected also by another heap overflow exploitable through big SSH packets, anyway no deeper research has been performed on this vulnerability.

=========== 3) The Code ===========

====== 4) Fix ======

No fix
