Trend Micro InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance (IWSVA) DecryptPasswd Stack-based Buffer Overflow

critical Nessus Plugin ID 148336

Synopsis

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

Description

The Trend Micro InterScan Web Security Virtual Appliance (IWSVA) is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability. A stack-based buffer overflow condition exists in the DecryptPasswd function in libuiauutil.so due to improper validation of user-supplied data before copying it to a fixed-size, stack-based buffer via the strcpy function. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted HTTP message, to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

Note that the appliance is reportedly affected by other vulnerabilities; however, this plugin has not tested for those issues.

Solution

Upgrade to the IWSVA version 6.5 build 1919 or later.
