Doc Type: If docs needed, set a value
Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the FreeRDP client when it fails to validate input data when using gateway connections. This flaw could allow a malicious gateway to send a specially crafted input to a client leading to an out of bounds write in client memory. The highest threat from this flaw is that it could allow arbitrary code to be executed on the target system.

Description Marian Rehak 2021-10-21 13:09:23 UTC
The vulnerability exists due to a boundary error when processing /gt:rpc connections. A remote server can send specially crafted data to the client, trigger an out-of-bounds write and execute arbitrary code on the target system.
