Blue Coat Systems WinProxy CONNECT Method Heap Overflow Vulnerability

iDefense Security Advisory 02.02.07
http://labs.idefense.com/intelligence/vulnerabilities/
Feb 02, 2007

I. BACKGROUND

BlueCoat WinProxy is an Internet sharing proxy server designed for small to
medium businesses. In addition to internet sharing Winproxy also hosts a
series of security, anti-spam and anti-spyware capabilities. More
information can be located at the link shown below.

http://www.winproxy.com/

II. DESCRIPTION

Remote exploitation of a design error in Blue Coat Systems Inc.'s WinProxy
allows attackers to trigger a heap corruption vulnerability.  

The vulnerability can be triggered by sending an overly long HTTP CONNECT
request to WinProxy's HTTP proxy service.

III. ANALYSIS

Exploitation allows an attacker to cause a denial of service condition or
potentially execute arbitrary code.

Overly long payloads will result in a non-exploitable DoS condition.

previous versions are suspected vulnerable.

V. WORKAROUND

Disabling the WinProxy HTTP protocol will prevent this attack.
