TITLE:
eEye Retina WiFi Scanner ".rws" Handling Buffer Overflow

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA35786

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/35786/

DESCRIPTION:
Gjoko Krstic has discovered a vulnerability in eEye Retina WiFi
Scanner, which can be exploited by malicious people to potentially
compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the handling
".rws" files. This can be exploited to overflow a buffer in the .data
section by tricking a user into opening a ".rws" file having an overly
long "RWS010" entry.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in Retina WiFi Scanner version
1.0.8.68 included in Retina Network Security Scanner demo version
5.10.14. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Do not open untrusted ".rws" files with Retina WiFi Scanner.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Gjoko 'LiquidWorm' Krstic
