- Date Reported:
- 11 Dec 2017
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-16927.
- More information:
The scp_v0s_accept function in sesman/libscp/libscp_v0.c in the session manager in xrdp uses an untrusted integer as a write length, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted input stream.
For Debian 7
Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 0.5.0-2+deb7u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your xrdp packages.
