Monkey HTTP Daemon < 0.9.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2835


The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.


The version of the Monkey HTTP Server installed on the remote host suffers from the following flaws:

- A format string vulnerability. A remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running monkeyd by sending a specially-crafted request.

- A denial of service vulnerability. Repeated requests for a zero-byte length file, if one exists, could cause the web server to crash.


Upgrade to version 0.9.1 or higher.
