-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of Citrix EdgeSight. Authentication is not
required to exploit this vulnerability. 

The flaw exists within the LauncherService.exe component which listens
by default on TCP port 18747. When handling a request the process trusts
a user supplied field in the packet specifying the length of data to
follow, the process then copies the user supplied data, without
validation, into a fixed-length buffer on the heap. A remote attacker
can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under the
context of the SYSTEM user.

-- Vendor Response:
Citrix has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
details can be found at:
