Subject: TSRT-06-15: Citrix Presentation Server Client
 ActiveX Heap Overflow Vulnerability

TSRT-06-15: Citrix Presentation Server Client ActiveX Heap Overflow
December 6, 2006

-- CVE ID:

-- Affected Vendor:

-- Affected Products:
Citrix Presentation Server Client for Windows < v9.230 

-- TippingPoint(TM) IPS Customer Protection:
TippingPoint IPS customers have been protected against this
vulnerability since February 2006 by a pre-existing Digital Vaccine
protection filter ID 4163. For further product information on the
TippingPoint IPS: 

-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of Citrix Presentation Server Client for
Windows. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in
that the target must visit a malicious page.

The specific flaw resides in the SendChannelData function of the
ActiveX control Wfica.ocx (CLSID 238F6F83-B8B4-11CF-8771-00A024541EE3).
The function is prototyped as follows:

    SendChannelData(ChannelName As String,
        Data As String,
        DataSize As Long,
        DataType As ICAVCDataType)

Specifying an undersized buffer length as the 'DataSize' parameter and
supplying a large buffer as the 'Data' parameter results in an
exploitable heap corruption.

-- Vendor Response:
Citrix has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details
can be found at:
