WinProxy < 6.1r1c HTTP CONNECT Request Remote Overflow

High Nessus Plugin ID 24277


The remote HTTP proxy is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


The remote host is running WinProxy, a proxy server for Windows.

The version of WinProxy installed on the remote host reportedly contains a design issue that may result in a buffer overflow vulnerability. Using a specially crafted HTTP CONNECT request, a remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code on the affected host subject to the privileges under which the service runs.


Upgrade to WinProxy version 6.1r1c or later as it is rumored to address the issue.
