Luigi Auriemma has reported two vulnerabilities in FSD, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.
1) A boundary error exists within the "sysuser::exechelp()" function in sysuser.cc. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow by sending a specially crafted "help" command with an overly long parameter to a vulnerable server.
2) A boundary error exists within the "servinterface::sendmulticast()" function in servinterface.cc. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow by sending various specially crafted commands to a vulnerable server.
The vulnerabilities are reported in FSD 2.052 d9. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Restrict use to trusted network environments.
