NetUSB suffers from a remotely exploitable kernel stack buffer overflow. Because of insufficient input validation, an overly long computer name can be used to overflow the "computer name" kernel stack buffer. This results in memory corruption which can be turned into arbitrary remote code execution.
How is this attack launched?
The attacker must first access your network by either connecting wirelessly or with a Ethernet connection to the router. If you have encrypted WiFi, an attacker’s ability to access your network and perform the hack is greatly reduced.
