The remote service is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
The version of the Network Block Device (NBD) server installed on the
remote host does not properly check the size of read requests before
filling a dynamically-allocated buffer. Using a specially crafted read
request, an attacker can overwrite this buffer, which could crash the
affected server or allow for the execution of arbitrary code.
