EMC Legato Networker 'nsrexecd.exe' Overflow

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4182
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote host is running EMC Legato Networker, an enterprise application that enables centralized file management, backup and more. This version of Legato is vulnerable to a flaw in the 'nsrexecd.exe' application. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only require the ability to connect to the nsrexecd.exe listening port (111/TCP). Successful exploitation would result in the execution of arbitrary code.


Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
