-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of LANDesk Management Suite. User interaction
is not required to exploit this vulnerability.

The specific flaw exists in the Alert Service listening on UDP port
65535. The Aolnsrvr.exe process accepts user-supplied data and performs
an inline memory copy into a 268 byte stack-based buffer. Supplying
additional data results in a buffer overflow and SEH overwrite. The
vulnerable memory copy is shown here:

0041EF49 mov edi, eax ; edi pointer to stack buffer
0041EF4B mov eax, ecx
0041EF4D shr ecx, 2 ; total size of data
0041EF50 rep movsd
0041EF52 mov ecx, eax
0041EF54 mov eax, ebx
0041EF56 and ecx, 3
0041EF59 rep movsb

Exploitation allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code under the
context of the SYSTEM user.
