News File Grabber NZB file buffer overflow
|newsfilegrabber-nzb-bo (32577)||High Risk|
News File Grabber is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of NZB files. By sending a specially-crafted NZB file with an overly long subject field, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with SYSTEM privileges, if the attacker could persuade the victim to open the malicious NZB file and view articles or message headers.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
