Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
A vulnerability has been identified in EN100 Ethernet module DNP3 IP variant (All versions), EN100 Ethernet module IEC 104 variant (All versions), EN100 Ethernet module IEC 61850 variant (All versions < V4.40), EN100 Ethernet module Modbus TCP variant (All versions), EN100 Ethernet module PROFINET IO variant (All versions). Affected applications contains a memory corruption vulnerability while parsing specially crafted HTTP packets to /txtrace endpoint manupulating a specific argument. This could allow an attacker to crash the affected application leading to a denial of service condition
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.
