Panda ActiveScan Control Internacional Heap Overflow
Remote / Network Access
Loss of Integrity
A remote overflow exists in Panda ActiveScan Control "Internacional" Property version 5.0. The Panda ActiveScan Control improperly checks the bounds of the Internacional property resulting in a heap overflow. With a specially crafted request, an attacker can cause the service to stop responding and or execute arbitrary code on the targeted host.
Currently, there are no known upgrades, patches, or workarounds available to correct this issue.
