    description The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SuSE-SA:2003:044 (thttpd). Two vulnerabilities were found in the 'tiny' web-server thttpd. The first bug is a buffer overflow that can be exploited remotely to overwrite the EBP register of the stack. Due to memory-alignment of the stack done by gcc 3.x this bug can not be exploited. All thttpd versions mentioned in this advisory are compiled with gcc 3.x and are therefore not exploitable. The other bug occurs in the virtual-hosting code of thttpd. A remote attacker can bypass the virtual-hosting mechanism to read arbitrary files. Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement. Then, install the package using the command 'rpm -Fhv file.rpm' to apply the update.

    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in thttpd, a tiny HTTP server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities : - CAN-2002-1562: Information leak Marcus Breiing discovered that if thttpd it is used for virtual hosting, and an attacker supplies a specially crafted 'Host:' header with a pathname instead of a hostname, thttpd will reveal information about the host system. Hence, an attacker can browse the entire disk. - CAN-2003-0899: Arbitrary code execution Joel Soderberg and Christer Oberg discovered a remote overflow which allows an attacker to partially overwrite the EBP register and hence execute arbitrary code.
