remote code execution.

Background

Open DC Hub is the hub software for the Direct Connect file sharing
network.

Affected packages
=================

Description
===========

Donato Ferrante discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the
RedirectAll command of the Open DC Hub.

Impact

Upon exploitation, a remote user with administrative privileges can
execute arbitrary code on the system running the Open DC Hub.

Workaround
