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





A HTTP server designed for Internet and intranet installations. It supports
direct database access without CGI, multiple host (virtual or port-linked)
and access security. Support many advanced features that can allow visitors
to add or change database entries. Accounts using username/password access
can be set up with the ability to decrement credits from the user when
defined pages are accessed. Auto-install and remove. On-line documentation
and support.



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





The Armida Databased Web Server has an vulnerability in the standard
configuration. This allows an attacker to crash the server by writing more
than 5000 bytes behind the hostname's url.


Example: http://host.com/AAAAA(more than 5000 bytes)...




3. EXPLOIT
============================================================================ 





This is an Proof of Concept Exploit of this Buffer Overflow Vulnerability.

NOTE: This is only for INFORMATION purposes and not for any destructive
acts!

    }
       write(sockfd, send, strlen(send));

}



This will produce an "crash" of the Armida Databased Web Server.




4. SOLUTIONS
============================================================================ 





<QUOTE>

In the "armida.ini" file in the section "[armida]"

set Pirati=20

This will fix the problem.
