securecrt: memory corruption in CSI functions CVE-2020-12651

I noticed a vulnerability in SecureCRT that allows a remote system to corrupt memory in the terminal process and execute arbitrary code.

The bug is that if you specify a line number to CSI functions that exceeds INT_MAX, the unsigned integer is used in signed comparisons and wraps around.

https://invisible-island.net/xterm/ctlseqs/ctlseqs.html#h3-Functions-using-CSI-_-ordered-by-the-final-character_s_

The terminal has an array of line buffers it uses for managing the current screen, and this bug means you can corrupt buffers outside of those array bounds.

To reproduce this bug, follow the following steps:
(I tested VT100 and XTerm emulation on Windows 10 x64, I assume otherplatforms/configurations are affected).


1. Create a new SSH session, accept all the default settings.
2. Connect to a remote system, and run this command (I assume gnu printf):

$ printf \"\\e[%uM%*c\" -$((1 << 30)) $COLUMNS A

That's CSI DL (Delete Line), but other line functions work too, e.g. IL, but it requires a longer reproducer:

$ tput clear; tput cup 0 0; for ((i=0; i < 32; i++)); do
> printf \"\\e[%huL%*c\\" $((-i & 0xffffffff)) $COLUMNS A
> done

In a real attack this might be an SSH banner or similar.

This bug is subject to a 90 day disclosure deadline. After 90 days elapse,
the bug report will become visible to the public. The scheduled disclosure
date is 2020-06-27. Disclosure at an earlier date is possible if
agreed upon by all parties.
