OpenSSL < 0.9.8i - DTLS ChangeCipherSpec Remote Denial of Service

EDB-ID:

Platform:

Multiple

 *
 * OpenSSL < 0.9.8i DTLS ChangeCipherSpec Remote DoS
 * Jon Oberheide <jon@oberheide.org>
 * http://jon.oberheide.org
 *
 * Information:
 *
 *   http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-1386
 *
 *   OpenSSL would SegFault if the DTLS server receives a ChangeCipherSpec as
 *   the first record instead of ClientHello.
 *
 * Usage:
 *
 *   Pass the host and port of the target DTLS server:
 *
 *   $ gcc cve-2009-1386.c -o cve-2009-1386
 *   $ ./cve-2009-1386 1.2.3.4 666
 *
 * Notes:
 *
 *   Much easier than the memory exhaustion DoS issue (CVE-2009-1378) as this 
 *   only requires a single ChangeCipherSpec datagram, but affects an older 
 *   version of OpenSSL.
 *
