FreeBSD : Pavuk HTTP Location header overflow (76904dce-ccf3-11d8-babb-000854d03344)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

When pavuk sends a request to a web server and the server sends back
the HTTP status code 305 (Use Proxy), pavuk copies data from the HTTP
Location header in an unsafe manner. This leads to a stack-based
buffer overflow with control over EIP.
