HylaFAX+ 5.2.4 < 5.5.4 Remote Buffer Overflow
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 76348
SynopsisThe remote host contains an application that is affected by a heap-based remote buffer overflow vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its version number, the HylaFAX+ install hosted on the remote web server is 5.2.4 or later and prior to 5.5.4. It is, therefore, affected by a heap-based remote buffer overflow vulnerability.
The flaw exists when 'hfaxd' is compiled with support for LDAP. The user input for LDAP authentication is not properly validated. This could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to version 5.5.4 or later.
