ID CVE-2011-4339
Summary ipmievd (aka the IPMI event daemon) in OpenIPMI, as used in the ipmitool package 1.8.11 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6, Debian GNU/Linux, Fedora 16, and other products uses 0666 permissions for its ipmievd.pid PID file, which allows local users to kill arbitrary processes by writing to this file.

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.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2013:0123 : Updated OpenIPMI packages that fix one security issue, multiple bugs, and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section. The OpenIPMI packages provide command line tools and utilities to access platform information using Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). System administrators can use OpenIPMI to manage systems and to perform system health monitoring. It was discovered that the IPMI event daemon (ipmievd) created its process ID (PID) file with world-writable permissions. A local user could use this flaw to make the ipmievd init script kill an arbitrary process when the ipmievd daemon is stopped or restarted. (CVE-2011-4339) Note: This issue did not affect the default configuration of OpenIPMI as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. This update also fixes the following bugs : * Prior to this update, the ipmitool utility first checked the IPMI hardware for Dell IPMI extensions and listed only supported commands when printing command usage like the option 'ipmtool delloem help'. On a non-Dell platform, the usage text was incomplete and misleading. This update lists all Dell OEM extensions in usage texts on all platforms, which allows users to check for command line arguments on non-Dell hardware. (BZ#658762) * Prior to this update, the ipmitool utility tried to retrieve the Sensor Data Records (SDR) from the IPMI bus instead of the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) bus when IPMI-enabled devices reported SDR under a different owner than the BMC. As a consequence, the timeout setting for the SDR read attempt could significantly decrease the performance and no sensor data was shown. This update modifies ipmitool to read these SDR records from the BMC and shows the correct sensor data on these platforms. (BZ#671059, BZ#749796) * Prior to this update, the exit code of the 'ipmitool -o list' option was not set correctly. As a consequence, 'ipmitool -o list' always returned the value 1 instead of the expected value 0. This update modifies the underlying code to return the value 0 as expected. (BZ#740780) * Prior to this update, the 'ipmi' service init script did not specify the full path to the '/sbin/lsmod' and '/sbin/modprobe' system utilities. As a consequence, the init script failed when it was executed if PATH did not point to /sbin, for example, when running 'sudo /etc/init.d/ipmi'. This update modifies the init script so that it now contains the full path to lsmod and modrpobe. Now, it can be executed with sudo. (BZ#829705) * Prior to this update, the ipmitool man page did not list the '-b', '-B', '-l' and '-T' options. In this update, these options are documented in the ipmitool man page. (BZ#846596) This update also adds the following enhancement : * Updates to the Dell-specific IPMI extension: A new vFlash command, which allows users to display information about extended SD cards; a new setled command, which allows users to display the backplane LED status; improved error descriptions; added support for new hardware; and updated documentation of the ipmitool delloem commands in the ipmitool manual page. (BZ#797050) All users of OpenIPMI are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues and add this enhancement.
