Helix Server < DESCRIBE Request LoadTestPassword Field Overflow



The remote host is vulnerable to a heap overflow.


The remote host is running the Helix RealServer streaming media server. This version of Helix is vulnerable to a flaw in the way that it processes the 'LoadTestPassword' field of a 'DESCRIBE' request. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need to be able to send malformed requests to the Helix Server. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary code


Upgrade to version or higher.
