Description Tomas Hoger 2008-07-02 08:54:20 UTC
Multiple remote DoS issue were reported for linuxdcpp:

http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2008/06/29/1

Linux DC++ (linuxdcpp) is a Direct Connect client based on the same 
client code as DC++, so it is vulnerable to the recently reported

[1] NULL pointer dereference remote DoS via partial file list requests
http://secunia.com/advisories/30812/
http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=608612&group_id=40287

Patch for linuxdcpp:
http://cvs.berlios.de/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/linuxdcpp/linuxdcpp/client/ShareManager.cpp.diff?r1=1.14&r2=1.15

[2] Empty message Remote DoS
When an attacker sends an empty message, he can cause the client to 
abort with "std::out_of_range" in substr().

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2008-07-02 09:01:01 UTC
CVE descriptions, currently bit messed with respect to version numbering
differences between (Windows) DC++ and Linux DC++, see oss-security thread.

CVE-2008-2953:
Linux DC++ (linuxdcpp) before 0.707 allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (crash) via "partial file list requests" that
trigger a NULL pointer dereference.

CVE-2008-2954:
client/NmdcHub.cpp in Linux DC++ (linuxdcpp) before 0.707 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via an empty
private message, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.
