Multiple Linksys Devices Heap Corruption Denial Of Service

Several Linksys devices are prone to heap corruption.

Due to insufficient bounds checking when copying user-supplied input to memory, it may be possible to corrupt information stored in heap memory. This issue can be triggered through a malicious HTTP request to a vulnerable device.

This vulnerability may be exploited by an attacker to reboot the vulnerable device. Although unconfirmed, it may also be possible to modify various configuration settings or execute malicious code.
