CVE-2016-2851

Status Candidate

Overview

Integer overflow in proto.c in libotr before 4.1.1 on 64-bit platforms allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or execute arbitrary code via a series of large OTR messages, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

Debian Linux Security Advisory 3512-1 - Markus Vervier of X41 D-Sec GmbH discovered an integer overflow vulnerability in libotr, an off-the-record (OTR) messaging library, in the way how the sizes of portions of incoming messages were stored. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw by sending crafted messages to an application that is using libotr to perform denial of service attacks (application crash), or potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.

libotr 4.1.0 Memory Corruption
Posted Mar 11, 2016
Authored by Markus Vervier

A remote attacker may crash or execute arbitrary code in libotr by sending large OTR messages. While processing specially crafted messages, attacker controlled data on the heap is written out of bounds. No special user interaction or authorization is necessary in default configurations. libotr versions 4.1.0 and below are affected.
