Date: December 13, 2014
Bug(s): #511688
ID: 201412-18

Synopsis

An integer overflow in FreeRDP couuld result in execution of
arbitrary code or Denial of Service.


Background

FreeRDP is a free implementation of the remote desktop protocol.

Unaffected: >= 1.1.0_beta1_p20130710-r1

Description

FreeRDP does not properly validate user-supplied input, which could lead
to an integer overflow in the xf_Pointer_New() function.

A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the process or cause Denial of Service.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
