ID CVE-2010-0734
Summary content_encoding.c in libcurl 7.10.5 through 7.19.7, when zlib is enabled, does not properly restrict the amount of callback data sent to an application that requests automatic decompression, which might allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or have unspecified other impact by sending crafted compressed data to an application that relies on the intended data-length limit.

Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-264
CAPEC
  • Accessing, Modifying or Executing Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's configuration that allows an attacker to either directly access an executable file, for example through shell access; or in a possible worst case allows an attacker to upload a file and then execute it. Web servers, ftp servers, and message oriented middleware systems which have many integration points are particularly vulnerable, because both the programmers and the administrators must be in synch regarding the interfaces and the correct privileges for each interface.
  • Leverage Executable Code in Non-Executable Files
    An attack of this type exploits a system's trust in configuration and resource files, when the executable loads the resource (such as an image file or configuration file) the attacker has modified the file to either execute malicious code directly or manipulate the target process (e.g. application server) to execute based on the malicious configuration parameters. Since systems are increasingly interrelated mashing up resources from local and remote sources the possibility of this attack occurring is high. The attack can be directed at a client system, such as causing buffer overrun through loading seemingly benign image files, as in Microsoft Security Bulletin MS04-028 where specially crafted JPEG files could cause a buffer overrun once loaded into the browser. Another example targets clients reading pdf files. In this case the attacker simply appends javascript to the end of a legitimate url for a pdf (http://www.gnucitizen.org/blog/danger-danger-danger/) http://path/to/pdf/file.pdf#whatever_name_you_want=javascript:your_code_here The client assumes that they are reading a pdf, but the attacker has modified the resource and loaded executable javascript into the client's browser process. The attack can also target server processes. The attacker edits the resource or configuration file, for example a web.xml file used to configure security permissions for a J2EE app server, adding role name "public" grants all users with the public role the ability to use the administration functionality. The server trusts its configuration file to be correct, but when they are manipulated, the attacker gains full control.
  • Blue Boxing
    This type of attack against older telephone switches and trunks has been around for decades. A tone is sent by an adversary to impersonate a supervisor signal which has the effect of rerouting or usurping command of the line. While the US infrastructure proper may not contain widespread vulnerabilities to this type of attack, many companies are connected globally through call centers and business process outsourcing. These international systems may be operated in countries which have not upgraded Telco infrastructure and so are vulnerable to Blue boxing. Blue boxing is a result of failure on the part of the system to enforce strong authorization for administrative functions. While the infrastructure is different than standard current applications like web applications, there are historical lessons to be learned to upgrade the access control for administrative functions.
  • Restful Privilege Elevation
    Rest uses standard HTTP (Get, Put, Delete) style permissions methods, but these are not necessarily correlated generally with back end programs. Strict interpretation of HTTP get methods means that these HTTP Get services should not be used to delete information on the server, but there is no access control mechanism to back up this logic. This means that unless the services are properly ACL'd and the application's service implementation are following these guidelines then an HTTP request can easily execute a delete or update on the server side. The attacker identifies a HTTP Get URL such as http://victimsite/updateOrder, which calls out to a program to update orders on a database or other resource. The URL is not idempotent so the request can be submitted multiple times by the attacker, additionally, the attacker may be able to exploit the URL published as a Get method that actually performs updates (instead of merely retrieving data). This may result in malicious or inadvertent altering of data on the server.
  • Target Programs with Elevated Privileges
    This attack targets programs running with elevated privileges. The attacker would try to leverage a bug in the running program and get arbitrary code to execute with elevated privileges. For instance an attacker would look for programs that write to the system directories or registry keys (such as HKLM, which stores a number of critical Windows environment variables). These programs are typically running with elevated privileges and have usually not been designed with security in mind. Such programs are excellent exploit targets because they yield lots of power when they break. The malicious user try to execute its code at the same level as a privileged system call.
  • Manipulating Input to File System Calls
    An attacker manipulates inputs to the target software which the target software passes to file system calls in the OS. The goal is to gain access to, and perhaps modify, areas of the file system that the target software did not intend to be accessible.

When performing GSSAPI authentication, credential delegation is always used (CVE-2011-2192). When SSL is enabled, cURL improperly disables the OpenSSL workaround to mitigate an information disclosure vulnerability in the SSL and TLS protocols (CVE-2011-3389). libcurl does not properly verify file paths for escape control characters in IMAP, POP3 or SMTP URLs (CVE-2012-0036). Impact : A remote attacker could entice a user or automated process to open a specially crafted file or URL using cURL, possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code, a Denial of Service condition, disclosure of sensitive information, or unwanted actions performed via the IMAP, POP3 or SMTP protocols. Furthermore, remote servers may be able to impersonate clients via GSSAPI requests. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description The cURL project reports in a security advisory : Using the affected libcurl version to download compressed content over HTTP, an application can ask libcurl to automatically uncompress data. When doing so, libcurl can wrongly send data up to 64K in size to the callback which thus is much larger than the documented maximum size. An application that blindly trusts libcurl's max limit for a fixed buffer size or similar is then a possible target for a buffer overflow vulnerability.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact.

Note: This issue only affected applications using libcurl that rely on the documented data size limit, and that copy the data to the insufficiently sized buffer. (CVE-2010-0734) This update also fixes the following bugs : * when using curl to upload a file, if the connection was broken or reset by the server during the transfer, curl immediately started using 100% CPU and failed to acknowledge that the transfer had failed. With this update, curl displays an appropriate error message and exits when an upload fails mid-transfer due to a broken or reset connection. (BZ#479967) * libcurl experienced a segmentation fault when attempting to reuse a connection after performing GSS-negotiate authentication, which in turn caused the curl program to crash. This update fixes this bug so that reused connections are able to be successfully established even after GSS-negotiate authentication has been performed. (BZ#517199) As well, this update adds the following enhancements : * curl now supports loading Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) from a Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) file. When curl attempts to access sites that have had their certificate revoked in a CRL, curl refuses access to those sites. (BZ#532069) * the curl(1) manual page has been updated to clarify that the '--socks4' and '--socks5' options do not work with the IPv6, FTPS, or LDAP protocols. (BZ#473128) * the curl utility's program help, which is accessed by running 'curl -h', has been updated with descriptions for the '--ftp-account' and '--ftp-alternative-to-user' options. (BZ#517084) Users of curl should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues and add these enhancements. All running applications using libcurl must be restarted for the update to take effect.

(CVE-2010-0734) This update also fixes the following bugs : - when using curl to upload a file, if the connection was broken or reset by the server during the transfer, curl immediately started using 100% CPU and failed to acknowledge that the transfer had failed. With this update, curl displays an appropriate error message and exits when an upload fails mid-transfer due to a broken or reset connection. (BZ#479967) - libcurl experienced a segmentation fault when attempting to reuse a connection after performing GSS-negotiate authentication, which in turn caused the curl program to crash. This update fixes this bug so that reused connections are able to be successfully established even after GSS-negotiate authentication has been performed. (BZ#517199) As well, this update adds the following enhancements : - curl now supports loading Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs) from a Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM) file. When curl attempts to access sites that have had their certificate revoked in a CRL, curl refuses access to those sites. (BZ#532069) - the curl(1) manual page has been updated to clarify that the '--socks4' and '--socks5' options do not work with the IPv6, FTPS, or LDAP protocols. (BZ#473128) - the curl utility's program help, which is accessed by running 'curl -h', has been updated with descriptions for the '--ftp-account' and '--ftp-alternative-to-user' options. (BZ#517084) All running applications using libcurl must be restarted for the update to take effect.
