ID CVE-2011-1015
Summary The is_cgi method in CGIHTTPServer.py in the CGIHTTPServer module in Python 2.5, 2.6, and 3.0 allows remote attackers to read script source code via an HTTP GET request that lacks a / (slash) character at the beginning of the URI.

CWE CWE-200
CAPEC
  • Subverting Environment Variable Values
    The attacker directly or indirectly modifies environment variables used by or controlling the target software. The attacker's goal is to cause the target software to deviate from its expected operation in a manner that benefits the attacker.
  • Footprinting
    An attacker engages in probing and exploration activity to identify constituents and properties of the target. Footprinting is a general term to describe a variety of information gathering techniques, often used by attackers in preparation for some attack. It consists of using tools to learn as much as possible about the composition, configuration, and security mechanisms of the targeted application, system or network. Information that might be collected during a footprinting effort could include open ports, applications and their versions, network topology, and similar information. While footprinting is not intended to be damaging (although certain activities, such as network scans, can sometimes cause disruptions to vulnerable applications inadvertently) it may often pave the way for more damaging attacks.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Browser Fingerprinting
    An attacker carefully crafts small snippets of Java Script to efficiently detect the type of browser the potential victim is using. Many web-based attacks need prior knowledge of the web browser including the version of browser to ensure successful exploitation of a vulnerability. Having this knowledge allows an attacker to target the victim with attacks that specifically exploit known or zero day weaknesses in the type and version of the browser used by the victim. Automating this process via Java Script as a part of the same delivery system used to exploit the browser is considered more efficient as the attacker can supply a browser fingerprinting method and integrate it with exploit code, all contained in Java Script and in response to the same web page request by the browser.
  • Session Credential Falsification through Prediction
    This attack targets predictable session ID in order to gain privileges. The attacker can predict the session ID used during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking.
  • Reusing Session IDs (aka Session Replay)
    This attack targets the reuse of valid session ID to spoof the target system in order to gain privileges. The attacker tries to reuse a stolen session ID used previously during a transaction to perform spoofing and session hijacking. Another name for this type of attack is Session Replay.
  • Using Slashes in Alternate Encoding
    This attack targets the encoding of the Slash characters. An attacker would try to exploit common filtering problems related to the use of the slashes characters to gain access to resources on the target host. Directory-driven systems, such as file systems and databases, typically use the slash character to indicate traversal between directories or other container components. For murky historical reasons, PCs (and, as a result, Microsoft OSs) choose to use a backslash, whereas the UNIX world typically makes use of the forward slash. The schizophrenic result is that many MS-based systems are required to understand both forms of the slash. This gives the attacker many opportunities to discover and abuse a number of common filtering problems. The goal of this pattern is to discover server software that only applies filters to one version, but not the other.

    description The following issues have been fixed in this update : - hash randomization issues (CVE-2012-115) (see below) - SimpleHTTPServer XSS. (CVE-2011-1015) - SSL BEAST vulnerability (CVE-2011-3389) The hash randomization fix is by default disabled to keep compatibility with existing python code when it extracts hashes. To enable the hash seed randomization you can either use : - pass -R to the python interpreter commandline. - set the environment variable PYTHONHASHSEED=random to enable it for programs. You can also set this environment variable to a fixed hash seed by specifying a integer value between 0 and MAX_UINT. In generally enabling this is only needed when malicious third parties can inject values into your hash tables.

  • NASL family Red Hat Local Security Checks
    NASL id REDHAT-RHSA-2011-0491.NASL
    description Updated python packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 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. Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language. A flaw was found in the Python urllib and urllib2 libraries where they would not differentiate between different target URLs when handling automatic redirects. This caused Python applications using these modules to follow any new URL that they understood, including the 'file://' URL type. This could allow a remote server to force a local Python application to read a local file instead of the remote one, possibly exposing local files that were not meant to be exposed. (CVE-2011-1521) Multiple flaws were found in the Python audioop module. Supplying certain inputs could cause the audioop module to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-1634, CVE-2010-2089) A race condition was found in the way the Python smtpd module handled new connections. A remote user could use this flaw to cause a Python script using the smtpd module to terminate. (CVE-2010-3493) An information disclosure flaw was found in the way the Python CGIHTTPServer module processed certain HTTP GET requests. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted request to obtain the CGI script's source code. (CVE-2011-1015) A buffer over-read flaw was found in the way the Python Expat parser handled malformed UTF-8 sequences when processing XML files. A specially crafted XML file could cause Python applications using the Python Expat parser to crash while parsing the file. (CVE-2009-3720) This update makes Python use the system Expat library rather than its own internal copy; therefore, users must have the version of Expat shipped with RHSA-2009:1625 installed, or a later version, to resolve the CVE-2009-3720 issue. All Python users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.

    NASL id SUSE_11_PYTHON-RANDOMISATION-UPDATE-120516.NASL
    description This update to python 2.6.8 fixes the following bugs, among others : - XMLRPC Server DoS. (CVE-2012-0845, bnc#747125) - hash randomization issues. (CVE-2012-1150, bnc#751718) - insecure creation of .pypirc. (CVE-2011-4944, bnc#754447) - SimpleHTTPServer XSS. (CVE-2011-1015, bnc#752375) - functions can accept unicode kwargs. (bnc#744287) - python MainThread lacks ident. (bnc#754547) - TypeError: waitpid() takes no keyword arguments. (bnc#751714) - Source code exposure in CGIHTTPServer module. (CVE-2011-1015, bnc#674646) - Insecure redirect processing in urllib2 (CVE-2011-1521, bnc#682554) The hash randomization fix is by default disabled to keep compatibility with existing python code when it extracts hashes. To enable the hash seed randomization you can use: - pass -R to the python interpreter commandline. - set the environment variable PYTHONHASHSEED=random to enable it for programs. You can also set this environment variable to a fixed hash seed by specifying a integer value between 0 and MAX_UINT. In generally enabling this is only needed when malicious third parties can inject values into your hash tables. The update to 2.6.8 also provides many compatibility fixes with OpenStack.
