==============1) Introduction
==============

GSW_SSHD is a well known commercial SSH server which acts as SSH tunnel
for the telnet server GS_Tnet.exe.

======2) Bugs
======
------------------------------------
A] format string in the log function
------------------------------------

The logging function used by the server is affected by a format string
vulnerability caused by the usage of vsprintf for building the first
message (like "LoginPassword(%s(%s)[%u])") and the usage of another
vsprintf for building the final log entry.
The bug can be exploitable through the username field.


--------------------------------------
B] buffer-overflow in the log function
--------------------------------------

A buffer-overflow vulnerability is located in the same logging
function.
It's enough to use an username longer than 10000 chars to exploit the
vulnerability.


--------------------------------------------------
C] buffer-overflow in the handling of the password
--------------------------------------------------

The server is affected also by another buffer-overflow this time
located in the instructions which handle the password supplied by the
client exploitable through a string longer than 800 chars.
