Flaw: integer overflow in XDR library

A flaw has been found in Sun's XDR code library, which is used by third-party applications to provide a platform-independent method for sending data from one system process to another. An integer overflow in one of XDR's functions could be exploited by a malicious user to execute arbitrary code on the affected machine. The XDR code is used by multiple operating system vendors.
