Description :

Luca Ercoli discovered that the "htdigest" program did not perform any
bounds checking when it copied the "user" and "realm" arguments into
local buffers. If this program is used in remotely callable CGI
scripts, this could be exploited by a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the CGI script.
