The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the implementation of the "sp_replwritetovarbin()" SQL procedure. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via specially crafted arguments passed to the affected procedure.
Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code with escalated privileges.
