Canna SR_INIT Command Remote Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2002-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote language translation service has a buffer overflow
vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running Canna, a service that processes Japanese
input and translates it from kana to kanji.

It was possible to make the remote Canna server crash by sending a
SR_INIT command with a very long string. A remote attacker could use
this to crash the service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
