LIVE555 Media Server < 2007.11.18 DoS

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

Description

The remote host is running LIVE555 Media Server, a media streaming server. The version of LIVE55 installed on the remote host is vulnerable to a denial of service attack when sent a request of less than 8 bytes. An attacker exploiting this flaw would only need the ability to connect to the RTSP server via the network. Successful exploitation would result in the service crashing.

Solution

Upgrade to version 2007.11.18 or higher.
