The LibVNCServer project, an open source library for implementing VNC compliant communication, suffers from a number of bugs that can be potentially exploited with security impact. Various implementation issues resulting in remote code execution and/or DoS conditions on both the VNC server and client side have been discovered. 1. A malicious VNC server can trigger incorrect memory management handling by advertising a large screen size parameter to the VNC client. This would result in multiple memory corruptions and could allow remote code execution on the VNC client. 2. A malicious VNC client can trigger multiple DoS conditions on the VNC server by advertising a large screen size, ClientCutText message length and/or a zero scaling factor parameter. 3. A malicious VNC client can trigger multiple stack-based buffer overflows by passing a long file and directory names and/or attributes (FileTime) when using the file transfer message feature. It should be noted that every described issue represents a post-authentication bug, therefore the server side conditions can be anonymously leveraged only if the VNC server is configured to allow unauthenticated sessions. Affected version: LibVNCServer <= 0.9.9 Fixed version: LibVNCServer, N/A Credit: vulnerability report received from Nicolas Ruff of Google Security Team <nruff AT google.com>.
