Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2020-07-08 11:17:22 UTC
In FreeRDP before version 2.1.2, an out of bound reads occurs resulting in accessing a memory location that is outside of the boundaries of the static array PRIMARY_DRAWING_ORDER_FIELD_BYTES. This is fixed in version 2.1.2.


Comment 1 Dhananjay Arunesh 2020-07-08 11:18:45 UTC
Created freerdp tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-all [bug 1854853]
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1854852]

Comment 2 Todd Cullum 2020-07-09 22:29:41 UTC
in libfreerdp/core/update.c's update_write_order_info(), update_prepare_order_info,  and libfreerdp/core/orders.c's update_recv_primary_order() it was possible for update->primary to be outside the bounds of the PRIMARY_DRAWING_ORDER_FIELD_BYTES static array, referenced with PRIMARY_DRAWING_ORDER_FIELD_BYTES[orderInfo->orderType], which could cause an out-of-bounds read due to lack of bounds checking. The patch replaces the static array with a getter function that uses a switch-case to prevent this.

Comment 3 Todd Cullum 2020-07-09 22:37:46 UTC
The flaw is present in libfreerdp-core/orders.c for freerdp-1.0.2. Note this flaw applies to the freerdp CLIENT code.
