Date: Wed Dec 19 2012 - 05:45:14 CST


Advisory ID: HTB23129
Product: FireFly Mediaserver
Vendor: FireFly
Vulnerable Version(s): 1.0.0.1359 and probably prior
Tested Version: 1.0.0.1359 in Windows 7 SP1
Vendor Notification: November 21, 2012
Public Disclosure: December 19, 2012
Vulnerability Type: NULL Pointer Dereference [CWE-476]
CVE Reference: CVE-2012-5875
CVSSv2 Base Score: 5 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
Risk Level: Medium
Discovered and Provided: High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab ( https://www.htbridge.com/advisory/ )

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab has discovered multiple remote denial of service (DoS) vulnerabilities in FireFly MediaServer, which could be exploited by a malicious person to crash a remote server.

1) Multiple NULL pointer dereference vulnerabilities in Firefly MediaServer: CVE-2012-5875

1.1 The vulnerability exists due to improper handling of the HTTP CONNECTION header within the "firefly.exe" binary file. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted packet to 9999/TCP port (FireFly's server default port) with improper CONNECTION header value, leading to a NULL pointer dereference that will cause vulnerable server to crash immediately.

        0x0041e237 mov dl,[eax]
        0x0041e239 inc eax
        0x0041e23a cmp dl,bl

Proof of Concept:
The following HTTP request will crash the vulnerable Firefly server remotely:

GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: vulnhost.local
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U)
Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5
Keep-Alive: 300
Connection: xxxxxxx_xxxx_
Referer: http://www.host.com

1.2 The vulnerability exists due to improper handling of the ACCEPT-LANGUAGE, USER-AGENT and HOST HTTP header parameters within the "firefly.exe" binary file. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted packet to port 9999/TCP with a malformed header containing a control character of return carriage ("\r\n") that will cause a NULL pointer dereference and immediate termination of the vulnerable server.

The following examples demonstrate the vulnerabilities:

a) ACCEPT-LANGUAGE

1.3 The vulnerability exists due to improper handling of the HTTP POST and GET methods within the "firefly.exe" binary file. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted packet to 9999/TCP port with an improper HTTP POST or GET request containing an erroneous HTTP protocol version, or one or more control characters of return carriage ("\r\n") leading to a NULL pointer dereference that will cause the vulnerable server to crash immediately.

The following examples demonstrate the vulnerabilities:

a) HTTP POST
