Vulnerability CVE-2009-0758


Published: 2009-03-03   Modified: 2010-08-12

Description:
The originates_from_local_legacy_unicast_socket function in avahi-core/server.c in avahi-daemon 0.6.23 does not account for the network byte order of a port number when processing incoming multicast packets, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (network bandwidth and CPU consumption) via a crafted legacy unicast mDNS query packet that triggers a multicast packet storm.

Type:

CWE-399

(Resource Management Errors)

Vendor: Avahi
Product: Avahi-daemon 
Version: 0.6.23;
