TFTP Server SP error message buffer overflow
|tftpserversp-errormessage-bo (42298)||High Risk|
TFTP Server SP is vulnerable to a stack-based and BSS-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking when handling error messages. By sending a specially-crafted TFTP error packet containing an overly long error message to UDP port 69, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with elevated privileges or cause the application to crash.
No remedy available as of March 1, 2014.
