Remote DoS in Desktop Orbiter







SUMMARY: Desktop Orbiter (www.anfibia.it) is a client-server application 

         that allow you to administer and secure your network.





VULNERABILITY

DESCRIPTION: At every connection to port 51054(of the server), a snapshot 

             preview of the desktop is loaded in memory;

             by creating many connections to this port a remote attacker

             can fill the virtual memory and flood user with mass errors 

             messages (like: virtual memory insufficent, exception 

             error,out of memory and Desktop Orbitter's errors).

             The application must be killed to regain normal 

             functionality of the system, but it's hard to do because any 

             process can't be executed and right bottom of the mouse 

             (usefull for kill process) is disallowed by errors messages;

             At the end of attack, user must reboot computer.





PLATFORM AFFECTED: Desktop Orbiter 2.01 (prior?)
