socat PROXY-CONNECT Address Stack Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

socat is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary-checks on user-supplied input.

An attacker can exploit this issue to cause denial-of-service conditions. Due to the nature of this issue, arbitrary code execution may be possible; this has not been confirmed.

socat versions 1.3.0.0 through 1.7.2.2 and 2.0.0-b1 through 2.0.0-b6 are vulnerable.
