Additional Information

WellinTech KingSCADA is a SCADA application for monitoring and controlling automation equipment and process products.

WellinTech KingSCADA is prone to a stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input. Specifically, this issue exists in the protocol parsing code contained in 'kxNetDispose.dll'.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed attacks will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.
