Cogent DataHub < 7.3.4 Malformed POST Request Buffer Overflow RCE

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is running an application that is affected by a remote
code execution vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Cogent DataHub, formerly known
as Cascade DataHub and OFC DataHub, that is prior to 7.3.4. It is,
therefore, affected by a remote code execution vulnerability that is
triggered when handling malformed POST query strings. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a
heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service condition
or the execution of arbitrary code in the context of the DataHub
process.
