Contiki-NG tinyDTLS Buffer Over-Read / Denial Of Service

Contiki-NG tinyDTLS Buffer Over-Read / Denial Of Service
Posted Jan 18, 2024
Authored by jerrytesting

An issue was discovered in Contiki-NG tinyDTLS versions through 2018-08-30. A buffer over-read exists in the dtls_sha256_update function. This bug allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly read sensitive information by sending a malformed packet with an over-large fragment length field, due to servers incorrectly handling malformed packets.
