Ubuntu Security Notice 646-1

Ubuntu Security Notice 646-1 - It was discovered that rdesktop did not properly validate the length of packet headers when processing RDP requests. If a user were tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possible execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. Multiple buffer overflows were discovered in rdesktop when processing RDP redirect requests. If a user were tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possible execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. It was discovered that rdesktop performed a signed integer comparison when reallocating dynamic buffers which could result in a heap-based overflow. If a user were tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possible execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2008-101
Posted May 19, 2008
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory - Several vulnerabilities were discovered in rdesktop, a Remote Desktop Protocol client. An integer underflow vulnerability allowed attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the logged-in user. A buffer overflow vulnerability allowed attackers to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the logged-in user. An integer signedness vulnerability allowed attackers to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the logged-in user. In order for these vulnerabilities to be exploited, an attacker must persuade a targeted user to connect to a malicious RDP server.

iDEFENSE Security Advisory 2008-05-07.2
Posted May 8, 2008
Authored by iDefense Labs | Site idefense.com

iDefense Security Advisory 05.07.08 - Remote exploitation of a BSS overflow vulnerability in rdesktop, as included in various vendors' operating system distributions, allows attackers to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the logged-in user. The vulnerability exists within the code responsible for reading in an RDP redirect request. This request is used to redirect an RDP connection from one server to another. When parsing the redirect request, the rdesktop client reads several 32-bit integers from the request packet. These integers are then used to control the number of bytes read into statically allocated buffers. This results in several buffers located in the BSS section being overflowed, which can lead to the execution of arbitrary code. iDefense confirmed the existence of this vulnerability in rdesktop version 1.5.0. Previous versions may also be affected.
