Comment 1 Stephen Herr 2018-08-16 16:11:45 UTC
MITRE description:

Heap-based buffer overflow in the env_opt_add function in telnet.c for various BSD-based Telnet clients allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via responses that contain a large number of characters that require escaping, which consumers more memory than allocated.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 is not vulnerable to this issue as it contains a backported patch.
