CWE ID 191


CVE-2024-32040 is a vulnerability affecting FreeRDP, a free implementation of the Remote Desktop Protocol. It specifically impacts FreeRDP based clients that use a version prior to 3.5.0 or 2.11.6 and have connections to servers using the NSC codec, making them vulnerable to integer underflow. To remediate the issue, it is recommended to update to versions 3.5.0 or 2.11.6. As a temporary workaround, users can avoid using the NSC codec by using the -nsc option. This vulnerability poses a high risk to organizations as it can be exploited remotely over a network without requiring any privileges or user interaction, potentially leading to compromise of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of affected systems and data.
