ID CVE-2010-1447
Summary The Safe (aka Safe.pm) module 2.26, and certain earlier versions, for Perl, as used 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, allows context-dependent attackers to bypass intended (1) Safe::reval and (2) Safe::rdo access restrictions, and inject and execute arbitrary code, via vectors involving subroutine references and delayed execution.

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.

  • NASL family CentOS Local Security Checks
    NASL id CENTOS_RHSA-2010-0458.NASL
    description Updated perl 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. Perl is a high-level programming language commonly used for system administration utilities and web programming. The Safe extension module allows users to compile and execute Perl code in restricted compartments. The File::Path module allows users to create and remove directory trees. The Safe module did not properly restrict the code of implicitly called methods (such as DESTROY and AUTOLOAD) on implicitly blessed objects returned as a result of unsafe code evaluation. These methods could have been executed unrestricted by Safe when such objects were accessed or destroyed. A specially crafted Perl script executed inside of a Safe compartment could use this flaw to bypass intended Safe module restrictions. (CVE-2010-1168) The Safe module did not properly restrict code compiled in a Safe compartment and executed out of the compartment via a subroutine reference returned as a result of unsafe code evaluation. A specially crafted Perl script executed inside of a Safe compartment could use this flaw to bypass intended Safe module restrictions, if the returned subroutine reference was called from outside of the compartment. (CVE-2010-1447) Multiple race conditions were found in the way the File::Path module's rmtree function removed directory trees. A malicious, local user with write access to a directory being removed by a victim, running a Perl script using rmtree, could cause the permissions of arbitrary files to be changed to world-writable and setuid, or delete arbitrary files via a symbolic link attack, if the victim had the privileges to change the permissions of the target files or to remove them. (CVE-2008-5302, CVE-2008-5303) Red Hat would like to thank Tim Bunce for responsibly reporting the CVE-2010-1168 and CVE-2010-1447 issues. Upstream acknowledges Nick Cleaton as the original reporter of CVE-2010-1168, and Tim Bunce and Rafael Garcia-Suarez as the original reporters of CVE-2010-1447. These packages upgrade the Safe extension module to version 2.27. Refer to the Safe module's Changes file, linked to in the References, for a full list of changes. Users of perl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. All applications using the Safe or File::Path modules must be restarted for this update to take effect.

The Safe module did not properly restrict the code of implicitly called methods (such as DESTROY and AUTOLOAD) on implicitly blessed objects returned as a result of unsafe code evaluation. These methods could have been executed unrestricted by Safe when such objects were accessed or destroyed. A specially crafted Perl script executed inside of a Safe compartment could use this flaw to bypass intended Safe module restrictions. (CVE-2010-1168) The Safe module did not properly restrict code compiled in a Safe compartment and executed out of the compartment via a subroutine reference returned as a result of unsafe code evaluation. A specially crafted Perl script executed inside of a Safe compartment could use this flaw to bypass intended Safe module restrictions, if the returned subroutine reference was called from outside of the compartment. (CVE-2010-1447) Multiple race conditions were found in the way the File::Path module's rmtree function removed directory trees. A malicious, local user with write access to a directory being removed by a victim, running a Perl script using rmtree, could cause the permissions of arbitrary files to be changed to world-writable and setuid, or delete arbitrary files via a symbolic link attack, if the victim had the privileges to change the permissions of the target files or to remove them. (CVE-2008-5302, CVE-2008-5303) Red Hat would like to thank Tim Bunce for responsibly reporting the CVE-2010-1168 and CVE-2010-1447 issues. Upstream acknowledges Nick Cleaton as the original reporter of CVE-2010-1168, and Tim Bunce and Rafael Garcia-Suarez as the original reporters of CVE-2010-1447. These packages upgrade the Safe extension module to version 2.27. Refer to the Safe module's Changes file, linked to in the References, for a full list of changes. Users of perl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. All applications using the Safe or File::Path modules must be restarted for this update to take effect.

    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2010-0457.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0457 : Updated perl packages that fix two security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4. 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. Perl is a high-level programming language commonly used for system administration utilities and web programming. The Safe extension module allows users to compile and execute Perl code in restricted compartments. The Safe module did not properly restrict the code of implicitly called methods (such as DESTROY and AUTOLOAD) on implicitly blessed objects returned as a result of unsafe code evaluation. These methods could have been executed unrestricted by Safe when such objects were accessed or destroyed. A specially crafted Perl script executed inside of a Safe compartment could use this flaw to bypass intended Safe module restrictions. (CVE-2010-1168) The Safe module did not properly restrict code compiled in a Safe compartment and executed out of the compartment via a subroutine reference returned as a result of unsafe code evaluation. A specially crafted Perl script executed inside of a Safe compartment could use this flaw to bypass intended Safe module restrictions, if the returned subroutine reference was called from outside of the compartment. (CVE-2010-1447) Red Hat would like to thank Tim Bunce for responsibly reporting the CVE-2010-1168 and CVE-2010-1447 issues. Upstream acknowledges Nick Cleaton as the original reporter of CVE-2010-1168, and Tim Bunce and Rafael Garcia-Suarez as the original reporters of CVE-2010-1447. These packages upgrade the Safe extension module to version 2.27. Refer to the Safe module's Changes file, linked to in the References, for a full list of changes. Users of perl are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. All applications using the Safe extension module must be restarted for this update to take effect.
