Description Dennis Gilmore 2007-02-19 20:32:16 UTC
Description of problem:

Sourcefire has learned of a remotely exploitable vulnerability in the Snort 
DCE/RPC preprocessor. This preprocessor is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer 
overflow that could potentially allow attackers to execute code with the same 
privileges as the Snort binary. Sourcefire has prepared updates for Snort 
open-source software to address this issue.
