(Non-US Revisions) DIR-612 / 615 / 822 :: CVE-2022-27255 :: Realtek Device eCOS RTL819x Chipset Family Software has a Stack-Based Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Overview

 

On March 25, 2022,  Realtek Semiconductor publicly disclosed (CVE-2022-27255) the Realtek eCos RSDK 1.5.7p1 and MSDK 4.9.4p1 for the RTL819x Chipset Family, has a SIP ALG function that rewrites SDP data that can be used as an attack-vector for stack-based buffer overflow. This allows an attacker to unauthenticed remotely execute code via a crafted SIP packet that contains malicious SDP data.

 

As soon as D-Link was made aware of the reported security issues, we had promptly started our investigation and began developing security patches.

 

Affected Versions:
     - rtl819x-eCos-v0.x Series
     - rtl819x-eCos-v1.x Series

Access Vector:
     - High Security Risk by crafting  anoverly long arguments in a specific SIP packet.

 

D-Link takes the issues of network security and user privacy very seriously. We have a dedicated task force and product management team on call to address evolving security issues and implement appropriate security measures.
