Buffer Overflow Vulnerability in Winlpd
From: Meftun () MeftunNet Com

Pablo Isola has discovered a vulnerability in Winlpd, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a 
vulnerable system. 

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when handling received requests. This can be exploited to cause a 
stack-based buffer overflow by passing an overly long string in a request to the service (port 515/tcp).

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 1.26. Other versions may also be affected.
