How smart of the smartcity, depends on your vulnerability management (CVE-2019-14462 & CVE-2019-14463) Aug 2019

Preface: Why should we driven Artificial Intelligence like a maniac? We are mankind!

MODBUS techincal background: Modbus is a communication protocol developed by Modicon systems. In simple terms, it is a method used for transmitting information over serial lines between electronic devices. The device requesting the information is called the Modbus Master and the devices supplying information are Modbus Slaves.

Possible way – A string is properly null-terminated if a null terminator is present at or before the last element in the array. If a string lacks the terminating null character, the program may be tricked into reading or writing data outside the bounds of the array. A successful exploit could trigger an out-of-bounds read condition that the attacker could use to execute arbitrary code or cause a DoS condition.

Remedy – Official release updated to include important fixes: https://libmodbus.org/2019/stable-and-development-releases/
