[R1] NetMotion Mobility VPN nmdrv.sys TCP Connection Termination Handling Remote DoS



While working on a customer issue, Tenable discovered an issue in the NetMotion Mobility VPN client that lead to a remote crash of Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (x86 architecture). Tenable performed analysis enough to assist NetMotion in fixing the issue, but did not have the time to do a full investigation. This issue may represent an underlying issue in Windows, but this was only investigated as far as determining that nmdrv.sys is not supposed to call tdtcp!_TdDisconnectHandler() when a server closes a connection, which could result in a "use-after-free" leading to a system crash.

Due to extensive delays in obtaining CVE assignments, Tenable is assigning our own CVE ID that we feel will not conflict with any current assignments or CNA pools. This will assist researchers and vendors in referencing this vulnerability should they work with the named vendor, or other vendors impacted by the issue. Until CVE resolves the delays in assignment, which is currently being discussed by MITRE and the CVE Editorial Board, Tenable will self-assign CVE IDs in the range of CVE-YEAR-82000 through CVE-YEAR-82999. These can be added to the master CVE database trivially, as seen by CVE-2014-999999 This is being done primarily so that we continue to be CVE-Compatible.


NetMotion has released version 10.50 which fixes this issue.
