Erika Mendoza has reported a vulnerability in various CA products, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the handling of HTTP data in the iGateway component. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow by supplying a negative value for the "Content-Length" HTTP header.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code, but requires access to the iGateway service at port 5250/tcp.
The vulnerability has been reported in versions of iGateway prior to 4.0.051230, which is included with the following products:
