Apple Darwin Streaming Server is_command buffer overflow
|darwin-iscommand-bo (34222)||High Risk|
Darwin Streaming Server is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking of the cmd and server buffers by the is_command function in proxy.c. By sending a specially-crafted RTSP request, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the service or cause the application to crash.
Upgrade to the latest version of Darwin Streaming Server (5.5.5 or later), available from the Darwin Streaming Server Web page. See References.
