Sentinel License Manager lservnt Service Remote Buffer Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote service is subject to a buffer overflow attack.

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Sentinel License Manager that
is subject to remote buffer overflows. By sending 3000 bytes or more to
the UDP port on which it listens (5093 by default), a remote attacker
can crash the LServnt.exe service, overwrite the EIP register, and
possibly execute arbitrary code.
