Apple Mac OS X AppleFileServer Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

It has been reported that AppleFileServer is prone to a remote buffer overflow vulnerability that may allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code in order to gain unauthorized access. The issue presents itself when the application receives a 'LoginExt' packet containing a malformed 'PathName' argument.

Apple Mac OS X 10.3.3 and prior are reported to be prone to this issue.

This issue was previously disclosed in a multiple BID 10268 (Apple OS X Multiple Unspecified Large Input Vulnerabilities), however, it is being assigned a new BID as a result of new information available.
