Author: Stefan Lochbihler Date: 17.04.2006 Affected Software: Neon Responder for Windows Software 5.4 Software Attack: Dos Overview: Neon Responders greatly enhance the functionality of LANsurveyor by providing LANsurveyor with direct access to computers with the Responder client installed. This direct access allows LANsurveyor to provide complete hardware and software asset reports, distribute software, and directly manage the client computers, either individually or as a group. Details: Through a specially crafted "Clock Synchronisation" packet an access violation occur and Neon Responder stops immediately.
