1. DESCRIPTION
========================================================================================


The Pi3 Component architecture is a high performance server based suite 
of libraries to
enable rapid development of server software. One of the components 
available for this
architecture is Pi3Web. A buffer overflow vulnerability in the product 
allows remote
attackers to crash the server by issuing a malformed request.





2. DETAILS
========================================================================================


The problem lies in the Directory Index with "Name" as Hyperlink Column. 
If following
configuration is in use, allow this a remote attacker to crash the 
server by issuing
this malformed request:


http://host.com/</?SortName=A



The administrator of the server must use one of the following directory 
layouts:

General Layout
--------------
[*] HTML index with tables

or

[*] HTML index with fixed font

or

[*] Generic HTML index



For this vulnerability must this two options set:  

Columns
-------
[*] Name - must be activated!


Sorting
-------
[*] Column title as hyperlink - must be activated!
