===============
1) Introduction
===============


NowSMS is a commercial SMS and MMS Content Delivery Solution.

------------------------------------
A] web authorization buffer-overflow
------------------------------------

The web interface of NowSMS which listens on port 8800 allows the users
to use the gateway for sending various types of messages (EMS, binary,
WAP, MMS and so on).

The function which handles the base64 password located in the HTTP
Authorization parameter is affected by a stack based buffer-overflow
exploitable with more than 256 bytes.

The server can be exploited both in case it requires and doesn't
require authentication.


-----------------------
B] SMPP buffer-overflow
-----------------------

NowSMS uses a stack buffer of 4 kilobytes for containing the incoming
SMPP packets.
The lack of checks on the real size of these packets (max 0xffffffff
bytes) leads to a buffer-overflow vulnerability which can be exploited
by an attacker to execute malicious code remotely.

The SMPP server is not enabled by default and doesn't have a default
listening port (the admin must decide it).
