Although we have not received any security alerts about Turbolinux systems
being infected
by the Adore Worm, the Turbolinux platforms mentioned above can be susceptible
to it. Please
take the proper precaution by updating the packages in your installation as
soon as possible.

1. Problem Summary

Adore is a variant of the Ramen worm that creates a backdoor to a Linux
system. It
then sends information about the compromised system to four email addresses:
two in the
United States and two in China. The worm gets its name from the username
associated
with each email address: adore9000 or adore9001.

To create this backdoor, the Adore worm seeks out four flaws associated with
the packages
nfs-utils, wu-ftpd, LPRng, and bind.

The four security flaws sought out by the Adore worm are:

a. wu-ftpd: Buffer overrun; due to improper bounds checking, SITE EXEC may
enable remote root execution, without having any local
user account
required.

b. nfs-utils: Flaw in the rpc.statd daemon can lead to remote root
break in.
Please note that the nfs-utils package will replace the
packages knfsd and knfsd-client. The package
knfsd-client
contains the rpc.statd daemon.

c. LPRng: Vulnerability due to incorrect usage of the syslog()
function.
Local and remote users can send string-formatting operators
to the print-
er daemon to corrupt the daemon's execution, potentially
gaining root
access.

d. bind: Buffer overflow in transaction signature (TSIG) handling
code.
This vulnerability may allow an attacker to execute code with
the same
privileges as the BIND server. Because BIND is typically run
by a
superuser account, the execution would occur with superuser
privileges.

Once in a system, it replaces an application called PS--used by
administrators to list the
currently running programs on a system--with a copy that will list all
programs except the
worm. It also sends important system files to the four email addresses.
After infecting a
machine and sending information about the computer through e-mail, the worm
waits until
4:02 a.m. and then deletes all its files, except the backdoor.


2. Solution

Update the packages from our ftp server by running the following
command:

rpm -Uvh ftp_path_to_filename

Where ftp_path_to_filename is the following:

ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/nfs-utils-0.2.1-7.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/wu-ftpd-2.6.1-5.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/LPRng-3.6.26-1.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/bind-8.2.3-2.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/bind-contrib-8.2.3-2.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/bind-devel-8.2.3-2.i386.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/security/bind-utils-8.2.3-2.i386.rpm


The source RPMs can be downloaded here:

ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/nfs-utils-0.2.1-7.src.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/wu-ftpd-2.6.1-5.src.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/LPRng-3.6.26-1.src.rpm
ftp://ftp.turbolinux.com/pub/updates/6.0/SRPMS/bind-8.2.3-2.src.rpm

**Note: You must rebuild and install the RPM if you choose to download
and install the SRPM. Simply installing the SRPM alone WILL NOT CLOSE
THE SECURITY HOLE.

Please verify the MD5 checksums of the updates before you install:
