Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-09-13 16:26:17 UTC
Georgi Geshev has discovered a vulnerability in OpenSLP, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).

The vulnerability is caused due to an out-of-bounds read error within the "SLPIntersectStringList()" function (common/slp_compare.c) when processing service requests and can be exploited to cause a crash via a specially crafted request.

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.2.1. Other versions may also be affected.

No official solution is currently available.

I was going to file a separate "version bump" bug, but after finding this one, it seems more efficient to just add that information here.

Openslp 2.0.0 was recently released (first release in more than eight years), which likely will have a solution for this problem.
Comment 2 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2013-07-12 20:28:28 UTC
I've added 2.0.0 to the tree, however I cannot test it at all, so NO KEYWORDS. 

Will need full re-keywording.

Debian patch:;filename=CVE-2012-4428.patch;att=1;bug=687597 .  @maintainers, Please patch and confirm that 2.0.0 is no longer affected.  Request stabilization in this bug when ready.
Comment 4 Thomas Deutschmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2016-11-21 20:01:20 UTC
@ Maintainer(s): According to upstream has never patch SLPContainsStringList function which contains the vulnerability.

So please pick-up Debian's version and report upstream.
Comment 5 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2017-02-18 19:11:21 UTC
Strangely this issue was never addressed in 2.0.0 (not even in the upstream hg repository).

I've forward-ported the patch (one chunk needed adapting since someone creatively re-arranged {brack{}ets}, one chunk isn't needed anymore since the code has been independently rewritten). 

Added in net-libs/openslp-2.0.0-r3.
