Debian Security Advisory

DLA-1203-1 xrdp -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
11 Dec 2017
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2017-16927.
More information:

The scp_v0s_accept function in sesman/libscp/libscp_v0.c in the session manager in xrdp uses an untrusted integer as a write length, which allows local users to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted input stream.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 0.5.0-2+deb7u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your xrdp packages.
