4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in MinaliC,
which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable
system.

1) A boundary error in the "get_cookie_value()" function 
(src/response.c) when parsing the "session_id" cookie can be exploited
to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted web
request.

2) A boundary error in the "add_default_file()" function 
(src/response.c) when parsing directory names can be exploited to 
cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted web 
request.

3) A boundary error in the "retrieve_physical_file_name_or_brows()"
function (src/response.c) when parsing file names can be exploited to
cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted web 
request.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities allows execution of
arbitrary code.
