Reported on

Jun 5th 2022


an attempt to write 2000 into a buffer of 10 bytes, while SSL_read does not add a zero at the end.

Proof of Concept

#define BUFF_SIZE 2000 
char buf[10];
int virtualIP = atoi(buf);


by changing the network data, you can access remote code execution. gives out that the application is building vpn, the information is also very sensitive.
