Description

A stack overflow vulnerability exists in the Citrix EdgeSight Load Tester software installed on the remote host.

By sending a specially crafted message to the server, a remote attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the server as the SYSTEM account.

Versions prior to 3.8.1 are affected.
