Vendor's Description:

"An Open Source Linux/Unix version of the hub software for Direct
Connect."

2. The bug:
------------

The program doesn't correctly manage the $RedirectAll command.
In fact it will have a buffer overflow, letting an attacker to execute
arbitrary code on the victim system.

NOTE: To exploit the bug the attacker needs to have admin privilege on
the victim hub.
