Description Adam Mariš 2017-07-26 05:16:54 EDT
An exploitable denial of service vulnerability exists within the handling of challenge packets in FreeRDP 2.0.0-beta1+android11. A specially crafted challenge packet can cause the program termination leading to a denial of service condition. An attacker can compromise the server or use man in the middle to trigger this vulnerability.

The vulnerability is located in the license read product info handling. A malicious crafted packet may cause the application to crash. The vulnerable code reads in an unsigned integer from the server message which then incremented by four as part of a length check. However, the size of the unsigned integer is never validated and thus the addition of four could cause an overflow and result in the client crashing.
