- Metasploit Modules Related To CVE-2009-4179

HP OpenView Network Node Manager ovalarm.exe CGI Buffer Overflow
This module exploits a stack buffer overflow in HP OpenView Network Node Manager 7.53. By sending a specially crafted CGI request to ovalarm.exe, an attacker can execute arbitrary code. This specific vulnerability is due to a call to "sprintf_new" in the "isWide" function within "ovalarm.exe". A stack buffer overflow occurs when processing an HTTP request that contains the following. 1. An "Accept-Language" header longer than 100 bytes 2. An "OVABverbose" URI variable set to "on", "true" or "1" The vulnerability is related to "_WebSession::GetWebLocale()". NOTE: This exploit has been tested successfully with a reverse_ord_tcp payload.
