Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer


Severity High
Score 7.5/10


Buffer overflow in the Sequencer::queueMessage function in sequencer.cpp in the server in Rigs of Rods (RoR) before 0.33d SP1 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by sending a nickname, then a vehicle name in a MSG2_USE_VEHICLE message, in which the combined length triggers the overflow.

CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow

Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
