ascdcx exploit

by phiber on March 11th, 2001 There are multiple buffer overflows in ascdc that can be exploited to gain root if it is installed setuid root. It is NOT installed setuid root by default but as the README says: "If you intend to use the automounting feature, you must either run ascdc as root or setuid it."
Vulnerability found by Christer Öberg, Wkit Security AB
