Published: 2010-04-12 16:40:45
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Detection Type:
Remote Banner

Impact:
Successful exploitation lets the attackers to discover process memory locations or execute arbitrary code in the context of an affected system or cause the application to crash via a long URI in an HTTP OPTIONS request. Impact Level: System/Application

Affected Versions:
Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 7 and prior.

Technical Details:
- An error exists in WebDAV implementation in webservd and can be exploited to cause Stack-based buffer overflow via long URI in an HTTP OPTIONS request. - An unspecified error that can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow which allows remote attackers to discover process memory locations and execute arbitrary code by sending a process memory address via crafted data. - Format string vulnerability in the WebDAV implementation in webservd that can be exploited to cause denial of service via format string specifiers in the encoding attribute of the XML declaration in a PROPFIND request. - An unspecified error in admin server that can be exploited to cause denial of service via an HTTP request that lacks a method token.

Recommendations:
No solution or patch was made available for at least one year since disclosure of this vulnerability. Likely none will be provided anymore. General solution options are to upgrade to a newer release, disable respective features, remove the product or replace the product by another one.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
