Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-01-19 17:56:23 UTC
From secunia security advisory at $URL:

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error within the "receive_packet()" function (libusbmuxd/libusbmuxd.c) when processing a property list containing an overly long "SerialNumber" field, which can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

Successful exploitation may allow the execution of arbitrary code, but requires that the attacker is able to connect a malicious USB device.
