Monkey HTTP Daemon < 0.9.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

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.

Solution

Upgrade to version 0.9.1 or higher.
