Sights 'N Sounds Media Server <= 2.0.3b MediaServerListing.exe Remote Overflow

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running Sights 'N Sounds, a media server that streams content to remote web clients. This version of Sights 'N Sounds is vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow. Specifically, when an attacker sends an overly long request such as 'GET /MediaListing.exe?<1200+ characters>', it causes the SWS.exe process to overwrite memory and either crash or execute arbitrary code.

Solution

Upgrade to a version of higher than 2.0.3b.
