Advisory 2006-11-01.01

Outpost Insufficient validation of 'SandBox' driver input buffer

Basic information:


Release date: November 01, 2006

Last update: January 27, 2007

Severity:Medium

Character:System crash

Status:Fixed

Testing program: BTP00001P004AO.zip

Description:

Outpost insufficiently protects its driver \Device\SandBox against a manipulation by malicious applications and it fails to validate its input buffer. It is possible to open this driver and send arbitrary data to it, which are implicitly believed to be valid. It is possible to assemble the data in the input buffer such that the driver performs an invalid memory operation and crashes the whole operating system. Further impacts of this bug were not examined.
