Title: Multiple Remote Code Execution found in ZHONE Vendor: Zhone Vendor URL: http://www.zhone.com Device Model: ZHONE ZNID GPON 2426A (24xx, 24xxA, 42xx, 42xxA, 26xx, and 28xx series models) Versions affected: < S3.0.501 Severity: High Vendor notified: Yes Reported: Public release: Author: Lyon Yang <lyon[at]vantagepoint[dot]sg> <lyon.yang.s[at]gmail[dot]com>

Summary:

ZHONE RGW is vulnerable to stack-based buffer overflow attacks due to the use of unsafe string functions without sufficient input validation in the httpd binary. Two exploitable conditions were discovered when requesting a large (7000) character filename ending in .cgi, .tst, .html, .cmd, .conf, .txt and .wl, in GET or POST requests. Vantage Point has developed working code execution exploits for these issues.
