Posted Jun 22, 2012
Authored by Tipping Point | Site zerodayinitiative.com

Zero Day Initiative Advisory 12-094 - This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Real Helix Server. Authentication is not required to exploit this vulnerability. The specific flaw exists within rn4auth.dll, which is responsible for parsing authentication credentials. When the GetNameValuePair() function calls strcpy, there is an unbounded copy into a stack buffer, which can lead to stack memory corruption. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code under the context of the process.
