Package : nbd
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3354

Kurt Fitzner discovered a buffer overflow in nbd, the network block device client and server that could potentially allow arbitrary cod on the NBD server.

For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.2cvs20020320-3.woody.3.
