Description


Aaron Portnoy has reported a vulnerability in LANDesk Management Suite, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the Alert Service (AOLNSRVR.EXE) when processing data received via port 65535/UDP. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via a specially crafted packet sent to port 65535/UDP.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is reported in version 8.7. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Update to the latest Service Pack and apply hotfix INST-11050687.2. Please see the vendor's advisory for more details.
