Sybase M-Business Anywhere (AvantGo) gsoap Module password Tag Handling Overflow

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

Synopsis :

The remote SOAP server is vulnerable to a buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The Sybase M-Business Anywhere (AvantGo) software installed on the
remote host includes a SOAP server that fails to validate an XML end tag in
a SOAP request, resulting in a buffer overflow.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute
arbitrary code.

This plugin checks the heap overflow condition in the SOAP server by
submitting a request with a long XML end tag.
