Maarten Boone has discovered a vulnerability in TinyIdentD, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing query requests. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow via an overly long (greater than 512 bytes) query request sent to default port 113/TCP (Identification Protocol).
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.2. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Restrict access to port 113.
