Matthew Murphy has reported multiple vulnerabilities in Pavuk, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to boundary errors within the digest authentication handler. This can be exploited via malicious digest authentication challenges with specially crafted nonce or realm values.
Successful exploitation allows execution but requires that a connection is made to a malicious website.
