Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200901-12 (noip-updater: Execution of arbitrary code)

xenomuta found out that the GetNextLine() function in noip2.c misses a
length check, leading to a stack-based buffer overflow.

Impact :

A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary
code by sending a specially crafted HTTP message to the client. NOTE:
Successful exploitation requires a man in the middle attack, a DNS
spoofing attack or a compromise of no-ip.com servers.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
