Retina Network Security Scanner: buffer overflow of RWS
Synthesis of the vulnerability
An attacker can invite the victim to open a malicious RWS file with Retina Wireless Scanner in order to execute code.Impacted products:
AD20090710, BID-35624, VIGILANCE-VUL-8852.
Description of the vulnerability
The Retina Wireless Scanner module, provided with Retina Network Security Scanner, detects WiFi networks. The list of detected devices can be saved in a file with the RWS extension.
A RWS file in version 1.0 starts with the "RWS010" pattern, followed by the list of detected networks.
When the device list is too long, opening the file creates a buffer overflow in Retina Wireless Scanner.
An attacker can therefore invite the victim to open a malicious RWS file in order to execute code on his computer.Complete Vigil@nce bulletin....
