[DeleGate-En] Delegate Security - Buffer Overflows
18 Nov 1999 06:56:15 GMT "J. Francois" <>
MagusNet, Inc.

I am/was the admin of a DeleGate based Public Proxy at:

I have recently shut down my public proxy operations until the
buffer overflows in DeleGate that have been published on BugTraq
are fixed.

I ran Delegate as a Public Proxy for 4 years on LINUX and I 
love the software and all of its features, however, I can no 
longer use it now that it becomes the weak link in my security 

I will try to compile DeleGate on OpenBSD and if that works I will
resume operation as soon as possible on that platform.

Until then I will wait to hear that the buffer overflow exploits
available in such a fantastic piece of software have been corrected.
I have already started going over the source code so that I may
try to contribute some fixes of my own.

I want to make sure that Mr. Sato gets the recognition he deserves for
taking the time to create and maintain DeleGate by using and
encouraging the use of DeleGate.
