Synopsis

A buffer overflow in PLIB might allow remote attackers to execute

Vulnerable: < 1.8.5-r1

Description

A buffer overflow in PLIB allows user-assisted remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via vectors involving a long error message, as

process.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
