CRITICAL:

iodine 0.x
http://secunia.com/product/11958/

DESCRIPTION:
poplix has discovered a vulnerability in iodine's client, which can
be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in the
"handshake()" function in the handling of handshakes from iodine
servers. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow
by tricking a user into connecting to a malicious iodine server.

Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 0.3.2. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Don't connect to untrusted iodine servers.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
