TheGreenBow is an IPsec VPN client that sets up a secure channel for data transport.


TheGreenBow VPN Client is vulnerable to a local stack based buffer overflow, which can lead to the compromise of a vulnerable system.


The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing certain sections of tgb (policy) files. Passing an overly long string to “OpenScriptAfterUp” will trigger the overflow.


Successful exploitation results in the execution of arbitrary code.



A patch is available from the vendor and will be included in the next release.
