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

The specific flaw exists within the ebus-3-3-2-6.dll module responsible for parsing GIOP requests for multiple 
processes. While parsing the first packet the function OBGIOPServerWorker::extractHeader trusts the provided size of 
the next packet and attempts to re-allocate a buffer.
By providing a large enough value an integer overflow can occur and the buffer can become undersized. A later memory 
copy using the original value specified in the packet can copy controlled data to the heap buffer. The affected 
services spawn multiple threads frequently enough that an attacker can theoretically win a race condition by sending 
multiple requests thus forcing the process to access the corrupted memory while the overflow is occurring. Successful 
exploitation would lead to remote code execution in the context of the SYSTEM user.
