Buffer Overflow in SentinelLM Service
<http://www.safenet-inc.com/products/sentinel/lm.asp> Sentinel LM is a
software-based license management application allowing application
developers to implement multiple pre-built license models with a single
software development integration effort.
A buffer overflow in SentinelLM allows a malicious attacker to run
arbitrary machine code on a vulnerable host.
* Sentinel License Manager version 188.8.131.52
When sending a large amount of data to the SentinelLM service, it will
result in a buffer overflow where the Extended Instruction Pointer (eip)
is overwritten, allowing arbitrary code being run on the server, with the
rights of the service. The Sentinel License Manager is vulnerable to a
buffer overflow when sending 3000 bytes of data or more to the UDP port
5093 where the "Lservnt" service are running resulting in the EIP being
overwritten allowing arbitrary code execution, with the rights of the
service, as default are "SYSTEM".
