Mac OS Personal Web Sharing Long Password Overflow DoS
Remote / Network Access
Denial of Service,
Loss of Integrity,
Loss of Availability
A remote overflow exists in MacOS. The 'Personal Web Sharing' control panel fails to perform proper bounds checking resulting in a buffer overflow. With a specially crafted request containing an overly long password, a remote attacker can cause the system to freeze resulting in a loss of availability.
Currently, there are no known upgrades, patches, or workarounds available to correct this issue.
