Vulnerability Note VU#190617
LiveData ICCP Server heap buffer overflow vulnerability
LiveData ICCP Server contains a heap-based buffer overflow. This vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to crash the server.
Inter-Control Center Communications Protocol (ICCP)
According to the LiveData ICCP Server white paper:
RFC 1006 specifies how to run the OSI transport protocol on top of TCP/IP. In the layered protocol model, RFC 1006 is situated between the TCP and OSI transport layers.
LiveData ICCP Server and LiveData Server
LiveData ICCP Server records and transmits data to other control points in process control networks. According to the LiveData ICCP Server white paper:
The LiveData implementation of RFC 1006 is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow. By sending a specially crafted packet to a vulnerable LiveData RFC 1006 implementation, a remote attacker may be able to trigger the overflow.
This vulnerability may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to crash a LiveData ICCP Server.
