mtr 'split.c' Remote Stack Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

The 'mtr' utility is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because the application fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code with superuser privileges. Successfully exploiting this issue will result in the complete compromise of affected computers. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.
