Fenice <= 1.10 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to crash Fenice using large Content-Length

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote RTSP server suffers from multiple overflow issues.

Description :

The remote host is running Fenice, an open-source media streaming
server for Linux / unix.

The version of Fenice installed on the remote host is affected by
integer overflow vulnerability involving requests with large values
for the 'Content-Length' header and by a buffer overflow vulnerability
in its 'parse_url' function. An unauthenticated remote attacker can
exploit either flaw using a simple GET request to crash the affected
application and possibly to execute arbitrary code subject to the
rights of the user id under which Fenice runs.
