NetSQL Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

NetSQL is an implementation of a database and toolset distributed by Munica Corporation. NetSQL is part of 5 piece software package called the Webpak, containing utilities for features such as web boards, membership, and online calendars.

A buffer overflow in the server makes it possible for a remote user to gain remote root access to a system using the affected software. By sending a long string to port 6500, a remote user can create a buffer overflow, allowing code execution.

This makes it possible for a remote user to gain remote root access, resulting in complete compromise of a system using the affected software.
