Advantech WebAccess CVE-2014-0990 Incomplete Fix Stack-Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Advantech WebAccess is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.

Note: Specifically, the vulnerability exists due to incomplete fix for CVE-2014-0770 (BID 66733 - Advantech WebAccess CVE-2014-0770 Stack-Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability).

Attackers can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause a denial-of-service condition.

Advantech WebAccess 7.2 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
