SocksCap Hostname Resolution Remote Stack Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

SocksCap is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because the software fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

Successful exploits allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the vulnerable application. Failed exploit attempts likely result in denial-of-service conditions.

SocksCap 2.40-051231 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
