Severity: Normal
Title: OpenSC: Insufficient protection of smart card PIN
Date: December 10, 2008
Bugs: #233543
ID: 200812-09

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Synopsis
========

Smart cards formatted using OpenSC do not sufficiently protect the PIN,
allowing attackers to reset it.

Background
==========

OpenSC is a smart card application that allows reading and writing via
PKCS#11.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/opensc < 0.11.6 >= 0.11.6

Description
===========

Chaskiel M Grundman reported that OpenSC uses weak permissions (ADMIN
file control information of 00) for the 5015 directory on smart cards
and USB crypto tokens running Siemens CardOS M4.

Impact
======

A physically proximate attacker can exploit this vulnerability to
change the PIN on a smart card and use it for authentication, leading
to privilege escalation.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OpenSC users should upgrade to the latest version, and then check
and update their smart cards:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/opensc-0.11.6"
# pkcs15-tool --test-update
# pkcs15-tool --test-update --update
