    Affected: Seanox DevWex 1.2002.0520 Windows binary
    Vulnerability: DoS and directory traversal using Win32 path delimiter
    Risk: High (Code execution?)-Medium(DoS and directory traversal)
    Vendor contacted: 26-5-2002
    Vendor fix: http://www.seanox.de/projects.devwex.php4

    DevWex is a small and flexible Webserver running as standalone win32
    binary and as JAVA application.

    Buffer-overflow problem:
    It exists a buffer-overflow problem in the procedure handling a GET
    command. Sending at least 258383 caracters with a GET command will crash
    the server and make it inaccessible.
    This could perhaps allow an attacker to execute shellcode.
    Example: GET 258383xA+CRLF+CRLF

    Directory traversal:
    An attacker can request an URL containing Windows path delimiters to
    break out of the
    document root of DevWex. This allows an attacker to download sensitive data.
    Example: GET /..\..\..\..\anyfile

    Fix: Seanox has released a new version (1.2002.0601)
