Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in RealNetworks Helix Server, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or to compromise a vulnerable system.

1) An unspecified error in the processing of RTSP DESCRIBE commands can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.

2) An unspecified error when parsing RTSP SETUP commands can be exploited to cause stack-based buffer overflow via three consequent, specially crafted requests to port 554 of an affected server.

3) An unspecified error in "DataConvertBuffer" can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow and allows execution of arbitrary code.

4) An unspecified error in the processing of Base64-encoded data in "NTLM Authentication" can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow and allows execution of arbitrary code.

The vulnerabilities have been reported in Helix Server version 11.x and 12.x and Helix Mobile Server Version 11.x and 12.x.


Solution:
Update to version 11.1.8 or version 12.0.1.
