Secunia Advisory SA25129

Where:

From remote

Impact:

DoS

Solution Status:

Unpatched

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Eelko Neven has reported some vulnerabilities in Progress, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

The vulnerabilities are caused due to an infinite loop when WebSpeed agents call _edit, _admin, _comp, _dict, dict, or _help with no additional parameter. These can be exploited to cause a DoS due to CPU exhaustion by requesting specially crafted URLs.

The vulnerabilities are reported in Progress 9.1e and 10b. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Filter malicious URLs using a proxy or firewall.
