Details,PoC and patches for CVE-2021-45383 & CVE-2021-45384

There are several network-layer vulnerabilities in the official server of Minecraft: Bedrock Edition (aka Bedrock Server),which allow attacker to launch a DoS attack.
CVE-2021-45383 is an integer overflow leading to a bound check bypass.
CVE-2021-45384 is a null pointer dereference.
Here are details & PoCs & possible patches for them.

Because both vulnerabilities lie in the network protocol handler,attackers can launch a DoS attack without logining or being in the server player allowlist.
CVE-2021-45383 affects Bedrock Server 1.16.0-
CVE-2021-45384 is an old vulnerability and affects 1.14.0-,earlier versions may be affected as well.
CVE-2021-45383 is caused by ClientCacheBlobStatusPacket::_read (packet deserializer)

u32 size1=readUnsignedVarInt();
u32 size2=readUnsignedVarInt();
if (size1+size2>0xfff){ //overflows here
    return false;

Attackers can choose special size1 and size2 (e.g. 0xffffffff & 0xfff) to bypass the bound check. Large sizes will cause a large loop(blocks the main thread) and allocate much memory (32G+ , may trigger an OOM error).

CVE-2021-45384 is caused by ServerNetworkHandler::handle(DisconnectPacket), which uses the return value of ServerNetworkHandler::_getServerPlayer directly.
Attackers can send a DisconnectPacket over a not properly initialized connection, and trigger a null pointer dereference in ServerNetworkHandler::handle(DisconnectPacket), which leads to a server crash.

Patch for CVE-2021-45384 has been integrated into LiteLoader
You can hook ServerNetworkHandler::handle(DisconnectPacket) and check the result of ServerNetworkHandler::_getServerPlayer. Or simply drop all DisconnectPackets.

Patch for CVE-2021-45383:
You can hook ClientCacheBlobStatusPacket::_read and check the range of size1 & size2 separately.
