VirusWall for NT - smtpscan.dll remote execute arbitrary command



    TrendMicro InterScan VirusWall 3.51


    Following is  based on  a SNS  Advisory No.34.   A buffer overflow
    vulnerability  was   found  in   some  administrative    programs,
    smtpscan.dll, of InterScan VirusWall for Windows NT.  It allows  a
    remote user to execute an arbitrary command with SYSTEM privilege.

    If  long  strings   are  included  in   a  certain  parameter   of
    configuration by  exploiting the  vulnerability that  was reported
    by SNS Advisory  No.28, a buffer  overflow occurs when  requesting
    the following dll:


    The following are  a memory dump  and contents of  register when a
    buffer overflow occurs.

              00F8E5C0 71 71 71 72 72 72 72 73 qqqrrrrs
              00F8E5C8 73 73 73 74 74 74 74 75 sssttttu
             EIP=73727272 ESP=00F8E5C8

    Therefore, arbitrary  code may  be executed  by calling  esp which
    may be replaced by an attacker's supplied arbitrary code.

    This has been discovered by Nobuo Miwa.
