Summary

Guido Vranken discovered that FreeRADIUS, an open source implementation of RADIUS, the IETF protocol for AAA (Authorisation, Authentication, and Accounting), did not properly handle memory when processing packets. This would allow a remote attacker to cause a denial-of-service by application crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code.
