DeleGate Information for VU#150227

HTTP proxy default configurations allow arbitrary TCP connections


Not Affected

Vendor Statement

When DeleGate is running as a HTTP proxy server, it allows only port 443 and 564 as the destination port of the CONNECT method, by default. When DeleGate relays a request with a header, it removes malformed header fields like "RCPT To:..." for example (illegal space in this case). And when DeleGate is relaying to a non-HTTP but privileged port, it tries to detect greeting message from non-HTTP server before relaying a request to it. If the server returns non-HTTP response like "220 ready" within a specified time period, then the request is rejected without forwarded to the server. These mechanisms have been available since 1999 (after DeleGate version 6).
