MSN Messenger bug

Release Date:

10/12/2008


Versions Affected:

Msn messenger 8.5.1
-------------------------------
Description :

The protocol MSNP15 Windows Live Messenger Client 8.5.1 transmit to the
information on the IP address public and private. Everything happens
during a conversation that starts with you in our contacts list.

By analyzing the conversation with Wireshark can be noted that in
addition to passing the information, such as the sessionid, the Cal, the
Ringing, and also pass Ipv4ExternalAddrsAndPorts
Ipv4InternalAddrsAndPorts. Ipv4ExternalAddrsAndPorts indicates the
public IP address with its front door, Ipv4InternaladdrsAndPorts
indicates the private IP address and port logic of our interlocutor.
This happens because the server fails to properly manage the various NAT
Client. That is, the server should send its IP to another client and not
the client you are talking.

An attacker could have free access to the router or network situations
and commit illegal actions or damage other networks.

------------------------------------
Possible fix/workaround :
This bug could be resolved in Sever which operates the Nat Protocol
MSNP15 and possibly creating a new protocol that does not create
problems of this kind.


--------------------------------------
This bug was discovered using the software installed in Pidgin 2.2.0
Linux distribution Slackware 12.0, during the various conversations with
users who use Windows Live Messenger 8.1 and 8.5.
