HFS Http File Server v2.3m Build 300

[Vulnerability Type]
Remote Buffer Overflow (DoS)

[CVE Reference]

[Security Issue]
rejetto HFS (aka HTTP File Server) v2.3m Build #300, when virtual
files or folders are used, allows remote attackers to trigger an
invalid-pointer write access violation via concurrent HTTP requests
with a long URI or long HTTP headers like Cookie, User-Agent etc.

Remote unauthenticated attackers can send concurrent HTTP requests
using an incrementing or specific payload range of junk characters for
values in the URL parameters or HTTP headers sent to the server. This
results in hfs.exe server crash from an invalid pointer write access

hfs.exe must have at least one saved virtual file or folder present.
Test using a remote IP and NOT from the same machine (localhost).


(e4c.3a8): Access violation - code c0000005 (first/second chance not available)
