- --[ Product / Vendor

Web Server 4 Everyone is an Internet and Intranet server that supports HTTP Services. Web Server
4 Everyone is available for Microsoft

Windows operating systems.

- --[ Summary

The problem is Web Server 4 Everyone v1.28 with bounds checking, when you request 2000 characters
"web4all.exe" just shuts down.

This vulnerability also affects Web Server 4 Everyone versions prior to v1.28 for Microsoft Windows
