Toby Dickenson has reported multiple vulnerabilities in Xzabite dyndnsupdate, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerabilities are caused due to some boundary errors and may be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a dyndns.org server (or via a man-in-the-middle attack) returning a specially crafted response.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.
Solution: Use another product.
