SolarWinds DameWare Mini Remote Control < 12.1.1 Denial of Service

high Nessus Plugin ID 140041


The remote host is running a remote management application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote host is running a version of SolarWinds DameWare Mini Remote Control prior to 12.1.1. It is, therefore, affected by a denial of service vulnerability. A classic buffer overflow allows a remote, unauthenticated attacker to cause a denial of service by sending a large 'SigPubkeyLen' during ECDH key exchange.


Upgrade to SolarWinds DameWare Mini Remote Control v12.1.1 or later.
