glibc multiple security vulnerabilities
Published:04.12.2011
Source:
SecurityVulns ID:12065
Type:library
Threat Level:
8/10
Description:Privilege escalation via shared libraries, fnmatch() buffer overflow, DoS conditions, crypt() blowfish weak ecnryption implementation.
Affected:GNU : glibc 2.12
CVE:CVE-2011-2483 (crypt_blowfish before 1.1, as used in PHP before 5.3.7 on certain platforms, PostgreSQL before 8.4.9, and other products, does not properly handle 8-bit characters, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to determine a cleartext password by leveraging knowledge of a password hash.)
 CVE-2011-1659 (Integer overflow in posix/fnmatch.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long UTF8 string that is used in an fnmatch call with a crafted pattern argument, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1071.)
 CVE-2011-1658 (ld.so in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier expands the $ORIGIN dynamic string token when RPATH is composed entirely of this token, which might allow local users to gain privileges by creating a hard link in an arbitrary directory to a (1) setuid or (2) setgid program with this RPATH value, and then executing the program with a crafted value for the LD_PRELOAD environment variable, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-3847 and CVE-2011-0536. NOTE: it is not expected that any standard operating-system distribution would ship an applicable setuid or setgid program.)
 CVE-2011-1095 (locale/programs/locale.c in locale in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.13 does not quote its output, which might allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted localization environment variable, in conjunction with a program that executes a script that uses the eval function.)
 CVE-2011-1089 (The addmntent function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier does not report an error status for failed attempts to write to the /etc/mtab file, which makes it easier for local users to trigger corruption of this file, as demonstrated by writes from a process with a small RLIMIT_FSIZE value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0296.)
 CVE-2011-1071 (The GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.12.2 and Embedded GLIBC (EGLIBC) allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a long UTF8 string that is used in an fnmatch call, aka a "stack extension attack," a related issue to CVE-2010-2898, CVE-2010-1917, and CVE-2007-4782, as originally reported for use of this library by Google Chrome.)
 CVE-2011-0536 (Multiple untrusted search path vulnerabilities in elf/dl-object.c in certain modified versions of the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6), including glibc-2.5-49.el5_5.6 and glibc-2.12-1.7.el6_0.3 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted dynamic shared object (DSO) in a subdirectory of the current working directory during execution of a (1) setuid or (2) setgid program that has $ORIGIN in (a) RPATH or (b) RUNPATH within the program itself or a referenced library. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2010-3847.)
