- - From advisory:

"Remote attackers may exploit the buffer overflow condition to run 
arbitrary code on a Snort sensor with the privileges of the Snort IDS 
process, which typically runs as the superuser. The vulnerable 
preprocessor is enabled by default. It is not necessary to establish 
an actual connection to a RPC portmapper service to exploit this 
vulnerability."
