Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer


Severity High
Score 9.8/10


A buffer overflow vulnerability lies in the web server component of Dup Scout Enterprise 9.9.14, Disk Savvy Enterprise 9.9.14, Sync Breeze Enterprise 9.9.16, and Disk Pulse Enterprise 9.9.16 where an attacker can craft a malicious GET request and exploit the web server component. Successful exploitation of the software will allow an attacker to gain complete access to the system with NT AUTHORITY / SYSTEM level privileges. The vulnerability lies due to improper handling and sanitization of the incoming request.

CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow

Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
