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.
