CVE-2017-2836 freerdp: Rdp Client Read Server Proprietary Certificate Denial of Service
Last modified: 2017-08-07 09:59:28 EDT
An exploitable denial of service vulnerability exists within the reading of proprietary server certificates 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 parsing of proprietary certificates. In this function, the public key is parsed by the FreeRDP library. However the size of the key specified in the server message packet is inferior to 8, the FreeRDP library crashes.
