SuSE Security Announcement

Package: esound
Date: Wednesday, October 11th, 2000 19:00 MEST
Affected SuSE versions: 6.3, 6.4, 7.0
Vulnerability Type: local user compromise
Severity (1-10): 3
SuSE default package: yes
Other affected systems: Linux systems using esound with unix domain
socket support

Content of this advisory:
1) security vulnerability resolved: esound
problem description, discussion, solution and upgrade information
2) pending vulnerabilities, solutions, workarounds
3) standard appendix (further information)

______________________________________________________________________________

1) problem description, brief discussion, solution, upgrade information

esound, a daemon program for the Gnome desktop, is used for sound replay
by various programs such as windowmanagers and other applications.
The esound daemon creates a directory /tmp/.esd to host a unix domain
socket. Upon startup, the daemon changes the modes of the socket, but
a race condition allows an attacker to place a symlink into the
directory to point to an arbitrary file belonging to the victim. By
consequence, an attacker may be able to change the permissions of any
file belonging to the victim. If the victim's userid is root, the
attacker may be able to change the modes of any file in the system.

SuSE distributions before SuSE-6.3 were not vulnerable to this attack
because unix domain sockets were not supported by the esound daemon as
shipped with these distributions.

The only efficient solution for the problem is to store the unix domain
socket in a directory where only the user has write access to. The
user's home directory is such a location.

Update packages that fix the race conditions by placing the sockets into
the user's home directory are available for download. It is recommended

to apply the fix on systems where multiple users can access the local
filesystem.

Note: Not all filesystems support unix domain sockets. The fix might
not work if the user's home directory is on such a filesystem
(such as AFS, eg.). In such rare cases, administrators are usually
aware of such limitations. SuSE default installations do not have
this limitation.

Download the update package from locations desribed below and install
the package with the command `rpm -Fhv file.rpm'. The md5sum for each
file is in the line below. You can verify the integrity of the rpm
files using the command
`rpm --checksig --nogpg file.rpm',
independently from the md5 signatures below.

2) Pending vulnerabilities in SuSE Distributions and Workarounds:

- gnorpm

A race condition has been found in the gnorpm program, a GUI for
the rpm system. The issue will be addressed in a following
announcement.


- ncurses

The ncurses library contains buffer overflows that are exploitable
when user-supplied terminfo databases are processed. This imposes a
security risk on programs/binaries that are linked against libncurses
and run with special privileges. Both workaround and clean solution
is to remove the suid bit from all executable files with setuid bit
set.
The issue will be addressed in a following security announcement.


- apache mod_rewrite

A bug has been discovered in the apache package that allows attackers
to read arbitrary files on a system that runs apache. The responsible
apache module named "mod_rewrite" is not used by default on
SuSE
installations of the apache package. The issue will be addressed in
a following security announcement.


- cfengine

A format string parsing bug causes the cfengine package to be
vulnerable to a remote root attack. Update packages are available,
the security announcement is pending.


- usermode/userhelper

userhelper is a suid helper program designed to let the user who
is logged on to the console execute some programs with root
privileges. SuSE distributions do not contain the usermode package
and therefore are not vulnerable to the security problems recently
discovered in the usermode package.


- tmpwatch

The tmpwatch packages as shipped with SuSE distributions are not
vulnerable to the attacks as discussed on security forums because
we ship an older version that does not provide the functionality
that can be exploited.


- lprNG

The versions of the lprNG package that come with SuSE distributions
are not vulnerable to the format string parsing errors as discussed
in security forums.


- traceroute

The traceroute program has been found vulnerable to a bug
(`traceroute -g 1 -g 1') in many distributions. Newer SuSE
distributions have a different implementation of the traceroute
program and are not vulnerable to the bug found by
Pekka Savola <pekkas@netcore.fi>. The vulnerability could not be
verified in older SuSE distributions.
