Bitvise FlowSsh Library Invalid Memory Access and zlib Compression Library Flaws Let Remote Users Deny Service
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1040943
SecurityTracker URL:
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  May 19 2018
Impact:   Denial of service via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 7.41
Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in Bitvise FlowSsh Library. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions on the target system.

A remote server can return a specially crafted packet to the target connected application that uses a 32-bit version of the FlowSsh library to trigger an invalid memory access error and cause the application to stop processing. The specific impact depends on the application using the library.

A remote authenticated user can trigger a race condition in a zlib compression library component to corrupt decompressed data in a different user's session. A FlowSsh application that simultaneously starts multiple concurrent SSH sessions after launching may be affected.

Impact:   A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (7.41) [in April 2018].
