WebBBS Web Server Multiple Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the web server that ships with WebBBS. It is possible to exploit the overflow if an unusually long filename , GET request, or search request on the file option page is sent to the web server, any of these requests will cause the service to stop responding and allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. If a long username is specified in the new user sign up form it is possible to exploit the same overflow.
