Vulnerability Disclosure Timeline:
==================================
2014-12-16:	Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory)


Discovery Status:
=================
Published


Affected Product(s):
====================
iOS Developer
Product: iWifi for Chat - iOS Web Application 1.1


Exploitation Technique:
=======================
Remote


Severity Level:
===============
Medium


Technical Details & Description:
================================
A remote denial of service vulnerbaility has been discovered in the official iWifi for Chat v1.1 iOS web-application.
The vulnerbaility allows remote attackers to shutdown the service application by sending a special crafted chat message.

The vulnerability is located in the application message input context. Remote attackers are able to inject special chars 
to provoke an error that results in a app shutdown. The bug can be exploited by processing to send special crafted symbole 
messages through the context message input box. The vulnerability allows an attacker to crash the connected remote ios client.

The security risk of the denial of service vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring 
system) count of 4.6. Exploitation of the DoS vulnerability requires no privileged application user account but a connected 
chat user for interaction. Successful exploitation of the code execution vulnerability results in mobile application compromise 
and affected or connected device component compromise.

Vulnerable Module(s):
				[+] Chat Message Input Box

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
				[+] message context

Affected Module(s):
				[+] iWifi for Chat v1.1


Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
The Vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without user interaction or privileged application user account.
