Vendor: Asus

Description
The vulnerability allows a remote unauthenticated user to execute arbitrary code on the target system.

The weakness exists due to stack-based buffer overflow. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted multicast messages containing a long host or port, trigger memory corruption, gain control over networkmap’s control flow and execute arbitrary code with privileges of the current user.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability result in arbitrary code execution.

Mitigation
Install update from vendor's website.
