Network Block Device Server Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for a buffer overflow vulnerability in a Network Block Device server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

read request, a possible hacker can overwrite this buffer, which may crash
the affected server or permit for the execution of arbitrary code.
