critical Nessus Plugin ID 94163


A backup application running on the remote host is affected by a remote code execution vulnerability.


The EMC Legato Networker application running on the remote host is affected by a stack overflow condition in the Networker Remote Exec Service (nsrexecd.exe), specifically within the sprintf() function, when handling poll or kill requests. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a crafted request using a long invalid subcmd, to execute arbitrary code.
