=======
Product
=======
Kerio Personal Firewall (KPF) helps users control how
their computers exchange data with other computers on
the Internet or local network.


===
Bug
===
Kerio Personal Firewall  takes urls using a tool
called web-filter and returns the requested content
to any browser , web filter helps to block adds , popus and
any malicious act comes from web pages.  If you pass arbitrary
values with the url Kerio's GUI crashes immediately and if you
repedetely pass arbitrary URLs Kerio will crash completely.

=====================
Proof Of Concept Code
=====================

If a URL contains  HexValue(%13%12%13)
Kerio Firewall v4.0.13 Crashes because it can't process the
given characters.

Kerio can crash  remotely , using url redirection or IFRAME
without user's acceptance and can cause DoS Immediately.


To avoid this problem you shoud disable Web Filtering until an update

NOTE: This bug can probably be valid in Version as well 4.0.14
since the Release History there is nothing mentioned about that
