WinGate POST Request Buffer Overflow Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks version number in WinGate's banner
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote HTTP proxy server is prone to a buffer overflow attack.
The remote host appears to be running WinGate Proxy Server, a Windows
application for managing and securing Internet access.
According to its banner, the version of WinGate installed on the
remote host is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability in its HTTP
proxy service. A possible hacker with access to use the proxy may be able
to exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.
Note that by default the service operates with LOCAL SYSTEM
rights, which means that a successful attack may result in a
complete compromise of the affected system.
