HyperTerminal Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

USSR Advisory Code: USSR-2000055

Public Disclosure Date:
October 18, 2000

Vendors Affected:

Microsoft Corporation

http://www.hilgraeve.com


Systems Affected:
HyperTerminal are installed by default on the following Microsoft
Operating Systems
Microsoft Windows 2000 (all versions)
Microsoft Windows Me

Problem:
The USSR Team has found a buffer overflow in the HyperTerminal telnet
client, which
is in the code that processes the Telnet URL's, that can enable an
attacker to execute
arbitrary code on another user's system. If a user opens an mail
containing HTML and
also contains a malformed Telnet URL a buffer overrun will enable the
creator of the mail
to cause arbitrary code to be runned on the user's system.


Example:

telnet://aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
:aaaa/
