SNS Advisory No.63
DeleGate Pointer Array Overflow May Let Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code

Problem first discovered on: Sun, 02 Mar 2003
Published on: Mon, 10 Mar 2003
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Overview:
--------
  DeleGate contains a vulnerability that could cause memory to be 
  overwritten, resulting in pointer array overflow if a large number 
  of User-Agent: lines are described in the robot.txt file.

Problem Description:
-------------------
  When a client attempts to get a robot.txt file from a server site 
  through DeleGate, DeleGate adds some rules based on this file by 
  default, whenever it is run as HTTP-PROXY.

  Describing several lines of User-Agent: in the robots.txt file could  
  cause memory to be overwritten, thus resulting in pointer array 
  overflow.

  An attacker could potentially run codes of her choice through 
  exploitation.

Tested Versions:
----------------
  DeleGate 8.3.4 (UNIX)
  DeleGate 8.4.0 (Windows)

Solution:
---------
  Upgrade to the fixed version Delegate 8.5.0.
