Published: 2020-08-30 03:00:47
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

The remote host is missing an update for the 'freerdp' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the DLA-2356-1 advisory.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
Several vulnerabilities have been reported against FreeRDP, an Open Source server and client implementation of the Microsoft RDP protocol. CVE-2014-0791 An integer overflow in the license_read_scope_list function in libfreerdp/core/license.c in FreeRDP allowed remote RDP servers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a large ScopeCount value in a Scope List in a Server License Request packet. CVE-2020-11042 In FreeRDP there was an out-of-bounds read in update_read_icon_info. It allowed reading an attacker-defined amount of client memory (32bit unsigned -> 4GB) to an intermediate buffer. This could have been used to crash the client or store information for later retrieval. CVE-2020-11045 In FreeRDP there was an out-of-bound read in in update_read_bitmap_data that allowed client memory to be read to an image buffer. The result displayed on screen as colour. CVE-2020-11046 In FreeRDP there was a stream out-of-bounds seek in update_read_synchronize that could have lead to a later out-of-bounds read. CVE-2020-11048 In FreeRDP there was an out-of-bounds read. It only allowed to abort a session. No data extraction was possible. CVE-2020-11058 In FreeRDP, a stream out-of-bounds seek in rdp_read_font_capability_set could have lead to a later out-of-bounds read. As a result, a manipulated client or server might have forced a disconnect due to an invalid data read. CVE-2020-11521 libfreerdp/codec/planar.c in FreeRDP had an Out-of-bounds Write. CVE-2020-11522 libfreerdp/gdi/gdi.c in FreeRDP had an Out-of-bounds Read. CVE-2020-11523 libfreerdp/gdi/region.c in FreeRDP had an Integer Overflow. CVE-2020-11525 libfreerdp/cache/bitmap.c in FreeRDP had an Out of bounds read. CVE-2020-11526 libfreerdp/core/update.c in FreeRDP had an Out-of-bounds Read. CVE-2020-13396 An out-of-bounds (OOB) read vulnerability has been detected in ntlm_read_ChallengeMessage in winpr/libwinpr/sspi/NTLM/ntlm_message.c. CVE-2020-13397 An out-of-bounds (OOB) read vulnerability has been detected in security_fips_decrypt in libfreerdp/core/security.c due to an uninitialized value. CVE-2020-13398 An out-of-bounds (OOB) write vulnerability has been detected in crypto_rsa_common in libfreerdp/crypto/crypto.c.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
