Darwin RTSP Server < 5.5.5 Multiple Overflows

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to multiple buffer overflows.

Description

The remote host is running the Darwin RTSP media server. This version of Darwin is vulnerable to multiple flaws in the way that it processes user-supplied data. An attacker exploiting these flaws would only need to be able to send RTSP requests to the Darwin server. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary code with the privileges of the Darwin server process.

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.5.5 or higher.
