musl libc 'inet_pton.c' Remote Stack Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

musl libc is prone to a remote stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied data.

An attacker can leverage this issue to execute arbitrary code within the context of the vulnerable application. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition.
