Security Bulletin: Vulnerability in OpenSLP affects Power Hardware Management Console (CVE-2019-5544)


## Summary The opensslp packages provide Service Location Protocol (SLP) which is an Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards track protocol and provides a framework to allow networking applications to discover the existence, location, and configuration of networked services in enterprise networks. And is vulnerable by CVE-2019-5544 ## Vulnerability Details **CVEID: **[CVE-2019-5544](<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2019-5544>) **DESCRIPTION: **OpenSLP, as used in Vmware used in ESXi and the Horizon DaaS appliances, is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by slpd_process.c. By sending a specially-crafted request, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service condition on the system.
