Alert Message

PROTOCOL-RPC CMSD UDP CMSD_CREATE array buffer overflow attempt

Rule Explanation

Integer overflow in xdr_array function in RPC servers for operating systems that use libc, glibc, or other code based on SunRPC including dietlibc, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by passing a large number of arguments to xdr_array through RPC services such as rpc.cmsd and dmispd.
