The LiveData Server fails to handle malformed Connection-Oriented Transport Protocol (COTP) packets. This vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to crash the LiveData Server.
The LiveData Server records and transmits data between two or more control systems. The Connection-Oriented Transport Protocol (COTP) is a transport layer protocol used in OSI networks. COTP is defined in ISO 8073. The LiveData implementation of COTP contains an unspecified vulnerability. By sending a specially crafted packet to a vulnerable LiveData Server, a remote attacker may be able to trigger this vulnerability.
A remote attacker can cause the LiveData Server to terminate abnormally, resulting in a denial-of-service condition.
This vulnerability is remedied in releases 5.00.62 or later of the LiveData Server products. This update is available on the LiveData web site.
This vulnerability was reported by Matt Franz of Digital Bond.
