(Possible) Linuxconf Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

[BugTraq] "There may exists a buffer overflow vulnerability in the Linuxconf package shipped with some version of Linux systems. The vulnerability may be in the program's handling of HTTP headers. Initial testing with Linuxconf 1.16r10 under RedHat 6.0 was inconclusive. If other can test the exploit and report their results it would be appreciated."
