TelnetD Subject to Buffer Overflow and DoS
Reported February 25, 2000 by USSRLabs
InterAccess TelnetD Server Release 4, all builds
UssrLabs found a bug in the code that handles the
client connection procedure. This particular set of code has an unchecked buffer that can
cause the TelnetD service crash, which leads to a denial of service attack.
Pragma Systems reported that
they have issued patch for TelnetD that corrects this matter.
