ID CVE-2010-1169
Summary PostgreSQL 7.4 before 7.4.29, 8.0 before 8.0.25, 8.1 before 8.1.21, 8.2 before 8.2.17, 8.3 before 8.3.11, 8.4 before 8.4.4, and 9.0 Beta before 9.0 Beta 2 does not properly restrict PL/perl procedures, which allows remote authenticated users, with database-creation privileges, to execute arbitrary Perl code via a crafted script, related to the Safe module (aka Safe.pm) for Perl. NOTE: some sources report that this issue is the same as CVE-2010-1447.

CWE CWE-94
CAPEC
  • 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.
  • Manipulating User-Controlled Variables
    This attack targets user controlled variables (DEBUG=1, PHP Globals, and So Forth). An attacker can override environment variables leveraging user-supplied, untrusted query variables directly used on the application server without any data sanitization. In extreme cases, the attacker can change variables controlling the business logic of the application. For instance, in languages like PHP, a number of poorly set default configurations may allow the user to override variables.

    description A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL enforced permission checks on scripts written in PL/Perl. If the PL/Perl procedural language was registered on a particular database, an authenticated database user running a specially crafted PL/Perl script could use this flaw to bypass intended PL/Perl trusted mode restrictions, allowing them to run arbitrary Perl scripts with the privileges of the database server. (CVE-2010-1169) A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL enforced permission checks on scripts written in PL/Tcl. If the PL/Tcl procedural language was registered on a particular database, an authenticated database user running aspecially crafted PL/Tcl script could use this flaw to bypass intended PL/Tcl trusted mode restrictions, allowing them to run arbitrary Tcl scripts with the privileges of the database server. (CVE-2010-1170) If the postgresql service is running, it will be automatically restarted after installing this update. NOTE1: postgresql84 and postgresql packages cannot be installed concurrently on the same system, with the exception that the postgresql-libs package can remain in place in parallel with postgresql84. The postgresql-libs package contains client-side library code to which existing applications may be linked. These libraries will still work with the newer server. NOTE2: As 8.4.x also has on-disk data format differences from 8.1.x, it is not possible to upgrade an existing 8.1.x PostgreSQL database to 8.4.x merely by replacing the packages. Instead, first dump the contents of the existing database using the pg_dumpall command, then shut down the old server and remove the database files (under /var/lib/pgsql/data). Next, remove the old packages and install the new ones; start the new server; and finally restore the data from the pg_dumpall output.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201110-22 (PostgreSQL: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in PostgreSQL. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details. Impact : A remote authenticated attacker could send a specially crafted SQL query to a PostgreSQL server with the 'intarray' module enabled, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the PostgreSQL server process, or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a remote authenticated attacker could execute arbitrary Perl code, cause a Denial of Service condition via different vectors, bypass LDAP authentication, bypass X.509 certificate validation, gain database privileges, exploit weak blowfish encryption and possibly cause other unspecified impact. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in postgresql : The bitsubstr function in backend/utils/adt/varbit.c in PostgreSQL 8.0.23, 8.1.11, and 8.3.8 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (daemon crash) or have unspecified other impact via vectors involving a negative integer in the third argument, as demonstrated by a SELECT statement that contains a call to the substring function for a bit string, related to an overflow. (CVE-2010-0442). A flaw was found in the way the PostgreSQL server process enforced permission checks on scripts written in PL/Perl. A remote, authenticated user, running a specially crafted PL/Perl script, could use this flaw to bypass PL/Perl trusted mode restrictions, allowing them to obtain sensitive information; execute arbitrary Perl scripts; or cause a denial of service (remove protected, sensitive data) (CVE-2010-1169). The PL/Tcl implementation in PostgreSQL 7.4 before 7.4.29, 8.0 before 8.0.25, 8.1 before 8.1.21, 8.2 before 8.2.17, 8.3 before 8.3.11, 8.4 before 8.4.4, and 9.0 Beta before 9.0 Beta 2 loads Tcl code from the pltcl_modules table regardless of the table's ownership and permissions, which allows remote authenticated users, with database-creation privileges, to execute arbitrary Tcl code by creating this table and inserting a crafted Tcl script (CVE-2010-1170). PostgreSQL 7.4 before 7.4.29, 8.0 before 8.0.25, 8.1 before 8.1.21, 8.2 before 8.2.17, 8.3 before 8.3.11, and 8.4 before 8.4.4 does not properly check privileges during certain RESET ALL operations, which allows remote authenticated users to remove arbitrary parameter settings via a (1) ALTER USER or (2) ALTER DATABASE statement (CVE-2010-1975).

    description It was discovered that the Safe.pm module as used by PostgreSQL did not properly restrict PL/perl procedures. If PostgreSQL was configured to use Perl stored procedures, a remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary Perl code. (CVE-2010-1169) It was discovered that PostgreSQL did not properly check permissions to restrict PL/Tcl procedures. If PostgreSQL was configured to use Tcl stored procedures, a remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary Tcl code. (CVE-2010-1170) It was discovered that PostgreSQL did not properly check privileges during certain RESET ALL operations. A remote authenticated attacker could exploit this to remove all special parameter settings for a user or database. (CVE-2010-1975).

    description Updated postgresql packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. PostgreSQL is an advanced object-relational database management system (DBMS). PL/Perl and PL/Tcl allow users to write PostgreSQL functions in the Perl and Tcl languages, and are installed in trusted mode by default. In trusted mode, certain operations, such as operating system level access, are restricted. A flaw was found in the way PostgreSQL enforced permission checks on scripts written in PL/Perl. If the PL/Perl procedural language was registered on a particular database, an authenticated database user running a specially crafted PL/Perl script could use this flaw to bypass intended PL/Perl trusted mode restrictions, allowing them to run arbitrary Perl scripts with the privileges of the database server.
