Affected product : mt-dappd/Firefly Media Server
Version : <= 0.2.4
Product details:

'''
The purpose of this project is built the best server software to serve digital music to the Roku Soundbridge and iTunes; to be able to serve the widest variety of digital music content over the widest range of devices
'''

File/Function/line : webserver.c/ws_dispatcher,ws_addarg/916-920,1171

Cause: This is a vsnprintf() related format string bug. The ws_addarg function uses its third argument as the format specifier and in this case this is user controlled as it is the decoded username from the Authorization field of the request header. The call to ws_addarg takes place pre auth so any format string should be possible. There is no restriction on the length of the format string either. The password field would also suffice as a location for the fmt string. This vulnerability could be used to execute arbitrary code on the affected system.

ws_decodepassword(auth,&username,&password);
if(auth_handler(username,password))
can_dispatch=1;
ws_addarg(&pwsc->request_vars,"HTTP_USER",username);
ws_addarg(&pwsc->request_vars,"HTTP_PASSWD",password);

int ws_addarg(ARGLIST *root, char *key, char *fmt, ...) {
...
va_start(ap,fmt);
vsnprintf(value,sizeof(value),fmt,ap);
va_end(ap);
