Neon Responder (Dos,Exploit)

Author:                    Stefan Lochbihler
Date:                      17.04.2006
Affected Software:         Neon Responder for Windows
Software                   5.4
Software                   http://www.neon.com/NRwin.shtml
Attack:                    Dos



Overview:
Neon Responders greatly enhance the functionality of LANsurveyor
by providing LANsurveyor with direct access to computers with the
Responder client installed. This direct access allows LANsurveyor
to provide complete hardware and software asset reports, distribute
software, and directly manage the client computers, either
individually or as a group.


Details:
Through a specially crafted "Clock Synchronisation" packet an
access violation occur and Neon Responder stops immediately.
