The IntelliCom NetBiter Config HICP configuration utility has a buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered by a specially crafted hostname (hn) value. An attacker with network access could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running NetBiter Config.
IntelliCom NetBiter devices are based on HMS Anybus technology. The HMS HICP protocol (3250/udp) provides a way to configure network settings for NetBiter and possibly other Anybus-based devices. The NetBiter Config HICP configuration utility (NetbiterConfig.exe) has a buffer overflow vulnerability that can be triggered by a specially crafted hostname (hn) value. Further details are available in the original post by Rubén Santamarta.
