Web Attack: Evinco Camshot GET BO

Severity: High

This attack could pose a serious security threat. You should take immediate action to stop any damage or prevent further damage from happening.


This signature detects attempt to exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the Evinco Camshot software

Additional Information

Evinco CamShot is a surveillance monitoring software.

The application is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input when handling a malformed 'GET' request.

Successfully exploiting this issue may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks will cause denial-of-service conditions.

CamShot 1.2 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
