Description Vasyl Kaigorodov 2014-09-24 10:09:34 UTC
It was reported [1] that the application parser for SSH integrated in Suricata contains a flaw that might lead to an out-of-bounds access. For this reason a Denial of Service towards the Suricata monitoring software might be possible using crafted packets on the monitoring interface.

The application parser for SSH (src/app-layer-ssh.c) contains a function SSHParseBanner. In case the parsed buffer is either




the function will behave in the wrong way and attempt either a very big memory allocation or an out of bounds array access with negative index, which also might lead to out-of-bounds write access under certain conditions. The problem is caused due to the fact that the end of the banner and start of the software version are computed independently.
