Network Block Device (NBD) Server Request Handling Remote Overflow

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote service is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.

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.
