NetSupport NSM / NSS Initial Connection Setup Configuration Exchange Remote Overflow

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 26922


The remote Windows host has a program that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.


NetSupport Manager (NSM), a multi-platform remote control application, is installed on the remote host.

According to its version, the NetSupport Manager client component on the remote host fails to properly validate input during the initial client connection sequence. An unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to crash the affected service or possibly execute arbitrary code.
