Remote buffer overflow in Apache mod_ssl when reverse proxying SSL



Remote buffer overflow in Apache mod_ssl when reverse proxying SSL

Summary: Segmentation fault in char_buffer_read when reverse proxying SSL (Version 2.0.50)

Reporter: lxhankins002 at fastmail.fm (M. "Alex" Hankins)

 

Overview Description:

 

Intermittent segmentation faults occur in char_buffer_read at

ssl_engine_io.c:348 when using a RewriteRule to do reverse proxying to an SSL

origin server running IIS.

 

    Steps to Reproduce:

 

1) Set up an IIS server using SSL and running eRoom 6.

 

2) Add the following directives to httpd.conf:

 

Listen 47290

SSLProxyEngine on

RewriteEngine on

RewriteRule /(.*) https://some.eroom6.iis.server.com/$1 [P]

 

3) Visit a URL similar to the following:

 

http://reverse.proxy.com:47290/eRoomASP/CookieTest.asp?facility=fa cility&URL=%2FeRoom%2FFacility%2FRoom%2F0_4242

 

If that doesn't cause the segfault, click around for a while.

 

(Yes, reverse proxying from non-SSL to SSL is not a good idea, but it keeps the

example simpler.)

 

    Actual Results:

 

Segmentation fault in error_log:

[Thu Jul 15 19:38:36 2004] [notice] child pid 42 exit signal Segmentation fault

(11), possible coredump in /usr/local/httpd-2.0.50
