The Treck TCP/IP stack may be known by other names such as Kasago TCP/IP, ELMIC, Net+ OS, Quadnet, GHNET v2, Kwiknet, or AMX.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow remote code execution and a denial-of-service condition.
The following components of Treck TCP/IP stack Version 184.108.40.206 and prior are affected:
A vulnerability in Treck HTTP Server components allow an attacker to cause a denial-of-service condition. This vulnerability may also result in arbitrary code execution.
An out-of-bounds write in the IPv6 component may allow an unauthenticated user to potentially cause a possible denial-of-service via network access.
An issue was discovered in Treck IPv6. An out-of-bound read in the DHCPv6 client component may allow an unauthenticated user to cause a possible denial-of-service via adjacent network access.
Improper input validation in the IPv6 component may allow an unauthenticated user to cause an out-of-bounds read of up to three bytes via network access.
Intel reported these vulnerabilities to Treck.
