The remote service is affected by a remote code execution
A flaw exists within the awhost32 component of the remote pcAnywhere
that is used when handling incoming connections from remote hosts. When
handling an authentication request, the process copies the user supplied
username unsafely to a fixed-length buffer of size 0x108. A remote
attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code under
the context of the SYSTEM account.
