Microsoft NetMeeting memory corruption (Brief)
Microsoft NetMeeting is an application that provides multipoint
audio/video conferencing and supporting services (desktop sharing,
whiteboard, remote control, file transfer) for Microsoft Windows platform.
All tests were performed using Microsoft NetMeeting 3.01
No other products were tested.
The application insufficiently validates received data opening a possibility
to overwrite portions of application memory causing exceptions ranging from
null-pointer access to a possible code execution. At the time of writing
there is no working exploit. HexView tests confirmed that it is possible to
remotely terminate an active NetMeeting presentation by either crashing the
hosting application or causing it to consume 100% of CPU resources.
Microsoft was notified on June 4th, 2005 and is supposedly investigating
the issue. HexView will release more details about the vulnerability
in a separate disclosure.
