XAMPP adodb.php mssql_connect Function Overflow
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3967
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.
DescriptionThe remote host is running the XAMPP web server, a version of Apache which comes pre-bundled with Perl, MySQL, and PHP. This version of XAMPP is reported prone to a remote buffer overflow via the mssql_connect() function. An attacker exploiting this flaw would send a malformed argument to a script that passed the data to mssql_connect(). Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary code on the server.
SolutionUpgrade to XAMPP greater than 1.6.0a.
