Red Hat, Inc. Security Advisory

Synopsis: traceroute setuid root exploit with multiple -g options
Advisory ID: RHSA-2000:078-02
Issue date: 2000-10-06
Updated on: 2000-10-06
Product: Red Hat Linux
Keywords: traceroute setuid root exploit
Cross references: N/A
---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Topic:

a root exploit and several additional bugs in traceroute have been
corrected.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 5.0 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 5.1 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 5.2 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.0 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.1 - i386, alpha, sparc
Red Hat Linux 6.2 - i386, alpha, sparc

3. Problem description:

A root exploit due to a segfault when using multiple -g options is fixed
for Red Hat Linux 6.x and Red Hat Linux 5.x.

A potential denial-of-service attack is alleviated by enforcing a maximum
buffer size of 64Kb.

On Red Hat Linux 6.x, loose source routing (LSRR) now works correctly.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

18466 - traceroute: local root exploit now exists
13466 - segfault while parsing multiple -g arguments
15917 - Maksimum packetlength checked badly (Local DoS)
16281 - traceroute LSRR broken

tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
rpm --checksig --nogpg <filename>
