ID CVE-2010-1748
Summary The cgi_initialize_string function in cgi-bin/var.c in the web interface in CUPS before 1.4.4, as used on Apple Mac OS X 10.5.8, Mac OS X 10.6 before 10.6.4, and other platforms, does not properly handle parameter values containing a % (percent) character without two subsequent hex characters, which allows context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information from cupsd process memory via a crafted request, as demonstrated by the (1) /admin?OP=redirect&URL=% and (2) /admin?URL=/admin/&OP=% URIs.

Impact:
Exploitability:
CWE CWE-119
CAPEC
  • Buffer Overflow via Environment Variables
    This attack pattern involves causing a buffer overflow through manipulation of environment variables. Once the attacker finds that they can modify an environment variable, they may try to overflow associated buffers. This attack leverages implicit trust often placed in environment variables.
  • Overflow Buffers
    Buffer Overflow attacks target improper or missing bounds checking on buffer operations, typically triggered by input injected by an attacker. As a consequence, an attacker is able to write past the boundaries of allocated buffer regions in memory, causing a program crash or potentially redirection of execution as per the attackers' choice.
  • Client-side Injection-induced Buffer Overflow
    This type of attack exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in targeted client software through injection of malicious content from a custom-built hostile service.
  • Filter Failure through Buffer Overflow
    In this attack, the idea is to cause an active filter to fail by causing an oversized transaction. An attacker may try to feed overly long input strings to the program in an attempt to overwhelm the filter (by causing a buffer overflow) and hoping that the filter does not fail securely (i.e. the user input is let into the system unfiltered).
  • MIME Conversion
    An attacker exploits a weakness in the MIME conversion routine to cause a buffer overflow and gain control over the mail server machine. The MIME system is designed to allow various different information formats to be interpreted and sent via e-mail. Attack points exist when data are converted to MIME compatible format and back.
  • Overflow Binary Resource File
    An attack of this type exploits a buffer overflow vulnerability in the handling of binary resources. Binary resources may include music files like MP3, image files like JPEG files, and any other binary file. These attacks may pass unnoticed to the client machine through normal usage of files, such as a browser loading a seemingly innocent JPEG file. This can allow the attacker access to the execution stack and execute arbitrary code in the target process. This attack pattern is a variant of standard buffer overflow attacks using an unexpected vector (binary files) to wrap its attack and open up a new attack vector. The attacker is required to either directly serve the binary content to the victim, or place it in a locale like a MP3 sharing application, for the victim to download. The attacker then is notified upon the download or otherwise locates the vulnerability opened up by the buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Symbolic Links
    This type of attack leverages the use of symbolic links to cause buffer overflows. An attacker can try to create or manipulate a symbolic link file such that its contents result in out of bounds data. When the target software processes the symbolic link file, it could potentially overflow internal buffers with insufficient bounds checking.
  • Overflow Variables and Tags
    This type of attack leverages the use of tags or variables from a formatted configuration data to cause buffer overflow. The attacker crafts a malicious HTML page or configuration file that includes oversized strings, thus causing an overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow via Parameter Expansion
    In this attack, the target software is given input that the attacker knows will be modified and expanded in size during processing. This attack relies on the target software failing to anticipate that the expanded data may exceed some internal limit, thereby creating a buffer overflow.
  • Buffer Overflow in an API Call
    This attack targets libraries or shared code modules which are vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks. An attacker who has access to an API may try to embed malicious code in the API function call and exploit a buffer overflow vulnerability in the function's implementation. All clients that make use of the code library thus become vulnerable by association. This has a very broad effect on security across a system, usually affecting more than one software process.
  • Buffer Overflow in Local Command-Line Utilities
    This attack targets command-line utilities available in a number of shells. An attacker can leverage a vulnerability found in a command-line utility to escalate privilege to root.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in cups : Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in the web interface in CUPS, allows remote attackers to hijack the authentication of administrators for requests that change settings (CVE-2010-0540). The _WriteProlog function in texttops.c in texttops in the Text Filter subsystem in CUPS before 1.4.4 does not check the return values of certain calloc calls, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference or heap memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted file (CVE-2010-0542). The web interface in CUPS, reads uninitialized memory during handling of form variables, which allows context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information from cupsd process memory via unspecified vectors (CVE-2010-1748). The cupsFileOpen function in CUPS before 1.4.4 allows local users, with lp group membership, to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on the (1) /var/cache/cups/remote.cache or (2) /var/cache/cups/job.cache file (CVE-2010-2431). ipp.c in cupsd in CUPS 1.4.4 and earlier does not properly allocate memory for attribute values with invalid string data types, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted IPP request (CVE-2010-2941). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=4 90 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0490 : Updated cups packages that fix three security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4, and 5. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important 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. The Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable printing layer for UNIX operating systems. The CUPS 'texttops' filter converts text files to PostScript. A missing memory allocation failure check flaw, leading to a NULL pointer dereference, was found in the CUPS 'texttops' filter. An attacker could create a malicious text file that would cause 'texttops' to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2010-0542) A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) issue was found in the CUPS web interface. If a remote attacker could trick a user, who is logged into the CUPS web interface as an administrator, into visiting a specially crafted website, the attacker could reconfigure and disable CUPS, and gain access to print jobs and system files. (CVE-2010-0540) Note: As a result of the fix for CVE-2010-0540, cookies must now be enabled in your web browser to use the CUPS web interface. An uninitialized memory read issue was found in the CUPS web interface. If an attacker had access to the CUPS web interface, they could use a specially crafted URL to leverage this flaw to read a limited amount of memory from the cupsd process, possibly obtaining sensitive information. (CVE-2010-1748) Red Hat would like to thank the Apple Product Security team for responsibly reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges regenrecht as the original reporter of CVE-2010-0542; Adrian 'pagvac' Pastor of GNUCITIZEN and Tim Starling as the original reporters of CVE-2010-0540; and Luca Carettoni as the original reporter of CVE-2010-1748. Users of cups are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. After installing this update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted automatically.

  • NASL family Scientific Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id SL_20100617_CUPS_ON_SL3_X.NASL
    description A missing memory allocation failure check flaw, leading to a NULL pointer dereference, was found in the CUPS 'texttops' filter. An attacker could create a malicious text file that would cause 'texttops' to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the 'lp' user if the file was printed. (CVE-2010-0542) A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) issue was found in the CUPS web interface. If a remote attacker could trick a user, who is logged into the CUPS web interface as an administrator, into visiting a specially crafted website, the attacker could reconfigure and disable CUPS, and gain access to print jobs and system files. (CVE-2010-0540) Note: As a result of the fix for CVE-2010-0540, cookies must now be enabled in your web browser to use the CUPS web interface. An uninitialized memory read issue was found in the CUPS web interface. If an attacker had access to the CUPS web interface, they could use a specially crafted URL to leverage this flaw to read a limited amount of memory from the cupsd process, possibly obtaining sensitive information. (CVE-2010-1748) After installing this update, the cupsd daemon will be restarted automatically.

    description Adrian Pastor and Tim Starling discovered that the CUPS web interface incorrectly protected against cross-site request forgery (CSRF) attacks. If an authenticated user were tricked into visiting a malicious website while logged into CUPS, a remote attacker could modify the CUPS configuration and possibly steal confidential data. (CVE-2010-0540) It was discovered that CUPS did not properly handle memory allocations in the texttops filter. If a user or automated system were tricked into printing a crafted text file, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the CUPS user (lp). (CVE-2010-0542) Luca Carettoni discovered that the CUPS web interface incorrectly handled form variables. A remote attacker who had access to the CUPS web interface could use this flaw to read a limited amount of memory from the cupsd process and possibly obtain confidential data. (CVE-2010-1748). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory.
