Vulnerability Summary for CVE-2007-2362

Original release date: 04/30/2007
Last revised: 03/07/2011


Multiple buffer overflows in MyDNS 1.1.0 allow remote attackers to (1) cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a certain update, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow in update.c; and (2) cause a denial of service (daemon crash) via unspecified vectors that trigger an off-by-one stack-based buffer overflow in update.c.


CVSS Severity (version 2.0):
CVSS v2 Base Score: 9.0 (HIGH) (AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C) (legend)

CVSS Version 2 Metrics:
Access Vector: Network exploitable
Access Complexity: Low
Authentication: Required to exploit
Impact Type: Allows unauthorized disclosure of information; Allows unauthorized modification; Allows disruption of service
Successful exploitation requires update privileges and that "allow-update" is set to "yes" in mydns.conf.
