SuSE Security Announcement

Package: ypbind/ypclient
Announcement-ID: SuSE-SA:2000:042
Date: Wednesday, October 18th, 2000 19:15 MEST
Affected SuSE versions: 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, 6.4, 7.0
Vulnerability Type: possible remote root compromise
Severity (1-10): 8
SuSE default package: yes (starting with SuSE-6.4)
Other affected systems: Linux systems using this NIS implementation

Content of this advisory:
1) security vulnerability resolved: ypbind/ypclient
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

Security problems have been found in the client code of the NIS
(Network Information System, aka yp - yellow pages) subsytem.
SuSE distributions before SuSE-6.1 came with the original ypbind
program, SuSE-6.2 and later included the ypbind-mt NIS client
implementation. ypbind-3.3 (the earlier version) has a format
string parsing bug if it is run in debug mode, and (discovered
by Olaf Kirch <okir@caldera.de>) leaks file descriptors under
certain circumstances which can lead to a DoS. In addition,
ypbind-3.3 may suffer from buffer overflows.
ypbind-mt, the software shipped with SuSE distributions starting
with SuSE-6.2, suffers from a single format string parsing bug.
Some of these bugs could allow remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code as root.
During code audit and testing it turned out that the ypbind-3.x
software in the SuSE-6.1 distribution and earlier needs a major
overhaul to make it work both reliable and secure with respect
to errors in the code. Basically, this is what happened when
Thorsten Kukuk <kukuk@suse.de> wrote ypbind-mt from scratch in 1998.
For the same reason, we are currently unable to produce a working
security update package which fixes the known and yet unknown (there
may be more) problems in the ypclient packages in the SuSE-6.1
distribution and older.
The only efficient workaround for the SuSE-6.1 distribution and older
against these bugs for an untrusted, hostile environment is to upgrade
to a new distribution base (SuSE-7.0 is recommended) and use the
ypclient update packages for this distribution.
As of today, there is no exploit known to exist in the wild.

For SuSE-6.2 and later distributions we provide update packages as
listed below. We recommend to download and install these packages
on systems that are NIS/yp clients.
Please note that the sources for the ypclient package are contained
within the ypserv source rpm.

Download the update package from locations described below and install
the package with the command `rpm -Uhv 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.
