Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in liblivemedia, the LIVE555 RTSP server library:

  • CVE-2019-6256

    liblivemedia servers with RTSP-over-HTTP tunneling enabled are vulnerable to an invalid function pointer dereference. This issue might happen during error handling when processing two GET and POST requests being sent with identical x-sessioncookie within the same TCP session and might be leveraged by remote attackers to cause DoS.

  • CVE-2019-7314

    liblivemedia servers with RTSP-over-HTTP tunneling enabled are affected by a use-after-free vulnerability. This vulnerability might be triggered by remote attackers to cause DoS (server crash) or possibly unspecified other impact.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 2014.01.13-1+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your liblivemedia packages.
