Neslo Desktop Rover Remote DoS
<http://www.nelsosoftware.com> Desktop Rover is "a software application
for Microsoft Windows that provides the features of a hardware KVM
(Keyboard, Video, Mouse)". Desktop Rover is vulnerable to a denial of
service (DoS). A remote attacker could send a specially crafted packet to
trigger an invalid memory access to crash the application, resulting in a
denial of service.
* Neslo Desktop Rover version 3.0
* Neslo Desktop Rover version 3.1
By default the Desktop Rover listens on port 61427/TCP, it also
conveniently opens up this port in the Windows XP personal firewall. This
packet is an example packet that will cause a denial of service, there are
more variations, but this will suffice for example.

The vendor is releasing a fix in version 3.1 soon which will address the
vulnerability, until then restricting access to the Desktop Rover ports
will reduce the risk of this vulnerability being exploited.
