TheGreenBow is an IPsec VPN client that sets up a secure channel
for data transport.

TheGreenBow VPN Client is vulnerable to a local stack based buffer
overflow, which can lead to the compromise of a vulnerable system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error when processing
certain sections of tgb (policy) files. Passing an overly long
string to "OpenScriptAfterUp" will trigger the overflow.

Successful exploitation results in the execution of arbitrary code.

A patch is available from the vendor (unverified) and will be
included in the next release.
