ID CVE-2012-5519
Summary CUPS 1.4.4, when running in certain Linux distributions such as Debian GNU/Linux, stores the web interface administrator key in /var/run/cups/certs/0 using certain permissions, which allows local users in the lpadmin group to read or write arbitrary files as root by leveraging the web interface.

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 This module exploits a vulnerability in CUPS < 1.6.2, an open source printing system. CUPS allows members of the lpadmin group to make changes to the cupsd.conf configuration, which can specify an Error Log path. When the user visits the Error Log page in the web interface, the cupsd daemon (running with setuid root) reads the Error Log path and echoes it as plaintext. This module is known to work on Mac OS X < 10.8.4 and Ubuntu Desktop <= 12.0.4 as long as the session is in the lpadmin group. Warning: if the user has set up a custom path to the CUPS error log, this module might fail to reset that path correctly. You can specify a custom error log path with the ERROR_LOG datastore option.

Adjust in cupsd.conf (bug #984883). - Fix cupsctl man page typo (bug #1011076). - Use more portable rpm specfile syntax for conditional php building (bug #988598). - Fix SetEnv directive in cupsd.conf (bug #986495). - Fix 'collection' attribute sending (bug #978387). - Prevent format_log segfault (bug #971079). - Prevent stringpool corruption (bug #884851). - Don't crash when job queued for printer that times out (bug #855431). - Upstream patch for broken multipart handling (bug #852846). - Install /etc/cron.daily/cups with correct permissions (bug #1012482). - Fixes for jobs with multiple files and multiple formats (bug #972242). - Applied patch to fix CVE-2012-5519 (privilege escalation for users in SystemGroup or with equivalent polkit permission). This prevents HTTP PUT requests with paths under /admin/conf/ other than that for cupsd.conf, and also prevents such requests altering certain configuration directives such as PageLog and FileDevice (bug #875898).

    description The following security issue has been fixed in the CUPS print daemon CVE-2012-5519: The patch adds better default protection against misuse of privileges by normal users who have been specifically allowed by root to do cupsd configuration changes The new ConfigurationChangeRestriction cupsd.conf directive specifies the level of restriction for cupsd.conf changes that happen via HTTP/IPP requests to the running cupsd (e.g. via CUPS web interface or via the cupsctl command). By default certain cupsd.conf directives that deal with filenames, paths, and users can no longer be changed via requests to the running cupsd but only by manual editing the cupsd.conf file and its default file permissions permit only root to write the cupsd.conf file. Those directives are: ConfigurationChangeRestriction, AccessLog, BrowseLDAPCACertFile, CacheDir, ConfigFilePerm, DataDir, DocumentRoot, ErrorLog, FileDevice, FontPath, Group, LogFilePerm, PageLog, Printcap, PrintcapFormat, PrintcapGUI, RemoteRoot, RequestRoot, ServerBin, ServerCertificate, ServerKey, ServerRoot, StateDir, SystemGroup, SystemGroupAuthKey, TempDir, User. The default group of users who are allowed to do cupsd configuration changes via requests to the running cupsd (i.e. the SystemGroup directive in cupsd.conf) is set to 'root' only.
