Description

This strike exploits a vulnerability in the Samba WINS service. Specifically, the vulnerability is due to a boundary error in the reply netbios packet function which constructs and sends replies. An attacker on a local network can send WINS Name Registration requests followed by a Name Query request. If more than 96 different IP addresses are mapped to this name, when the Name Query request is sent, the Name Query Response message will overflow the stack based buffer.
