2. Non-technical description
PXEService.exe is prone to a remote buffer overflow due to improper
bounds checking when handling PXE requests.
A remote unauthenticated malicious attacker can take advantage of this
flaw to execute arbitrary code by sending a specially crafted UDP packet.
3. Technical Description.
PXEService listens for PXE protocol Request. Incoming packets are copied
into a fixed buffer of 0x400 bytes. However the argument passed in to
"recvfrom()" as len is 0x5DC, therefore if an attacker is able to send a
specially crafted upd packet which exceeds that fixed length (0x400), an
overflow condition will occur. With enough crafting, an attacker can
take advantage of this flaw to execute arbitrary code on affected systems.
