Luigi Auriemma has discovered a vulnerability in Zoidcom, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to the incorrect processing of malformed packets within the "ZCom_processInput()" function. This can be exploited to trigger a double free error by sending specially crafted packets to an application using the "ZCom_processInput()" function of the library.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 0.6.7. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Deny access from untrusted sources to applications linked against the Zoidcom library.
