Microsoft IIS multiple vulnerabilities

by Mario Miri on June 2nd, 2003 Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported for IIS. 1. The first vulnerability is a cross site scripting issue in the error page returned to advise of a redirected URL. IIS 4.0, 5.0, and 5.1 are affected. 2. The second issue is a buffer overflow related to server side includes. If a malformed server side include page was uploaded to an IIS server then requested, a buffer would be overrun allowing arbitrary code execution with user level permissions. IIS 5.0 is affected. 3. ASP pages containing excessively large headers could cause IIS to fail when the page is requested by a remote user. IIS 4.0 and 5.0 are affected. 4. IIS does not properly handle WebDAV requests over 49,153 bytes to the PROPFIND and SEARCH request methods. As a result, if a long WebDAV request is received, IIS will fail. IIS 5.0 and 5.1 are affected.
