VU#790507: Oracle Solaris vulnerable to arbitrary code execution via /proc/self

The process file system(/proc)in Oracle Solaris 11 and Solaris 10 provides a self/alias that refers to the current executing process's PID subdirectory with state information about the process. Protection mechanisms for/proc in Solaris 11/10 did not properly restrict the current(self)process from modifying itself via/proc. For services strictly providing file IO this lack of restriction allows an attacker to modify the process providing the file IO and execute arbitrary code.

VU#129209: LLVMs Arm stack protection feature can be rendered ineffective

The Stack Protection feature provided in the LLVM Arm backend protects against buffer overflows by adding a cookie value between local variables and the stack frame return address. The compiler stores this value in memory and checks the cookie with the LocalStackSlotAllocation function to ensure that it has not changed or been overwritten. If the value has changed,then the function will terminate. Since it currently pre-allocates the stack protector before the local variables in the stack,it's possible that a new stack protector can be allocated later in the process. If that happens,it leaves the stack protection ineffective as the new stack protector slot appears after the local variables that it is meant to protect.

VU#465632: Microsoft Exchange server 2013 and newer are vulnerable to NTLM relay attacks

Microsoft Exchange supports a API called Exchange Web Services(EWS). One of the EWS API functions is called PushSubscriptionRequest,which can be used to cause the Exchange server to connect to an arbitrary website. Connections made using the PushSubscriptionRequest function will attempt to negotiate with the arbitrary web server using NTLM authentication. Starting with Microsoft Exchange 2013,the NTLM authentication over HTTP fails to set the NTLM Sign and Seal flags. The lack of signing makes this authentication attempt vulnerable to NTLM relay attacks. Microsoft Exchange is by default configured with extensive privileges with respect to the Domain object in Active Directory. Because the Exchange Windows Permissions group has WriteDacl access to the Domain object,this means that the Exchange server privileges obtained using this vulnerability can be used to gain Domain Admin privileges for the domain that contains the vulnerable Exchange server.

VU#905115: Multiple TCP Selective Acknowledgement (SACK) and Maximum Segment Size (MSS) networking vulnerabilities may cause denial-of-service conditions in Linux and FreeBSD kernels

CVE-2019-11477:SACK Panic(Linux>=2.6.29). A sequence of specifically crafted selective acknowledgements(SACK)may trigger an integer overflow,leading to a denial of service or possible kernel failure(panic). CVE-2019-11478:SACK Slowness(Linux<4.15)or Excess Resource Usage(all Linux versions). A sequence of specifically crafted selective acknowledgements(SACK)may cause a fragmented TCP queue,with a potential result in slowness or denial of service. CVE-2019-5599:SACK Slowness(FreeBSD 12 using the RACK TCP Stack). The TCP loss detection algorithm,Recent ACKnowledgment(RACK),uses time and packet or sequence counts to detect losses. RACK uses linked lists to track and identify missing packets. A sequence of specifically crafted acknowledgements may cause the linked lists to grow very large,thus consuming CPU or network resources,resulting in slowness or denial of service. CVE-2019-11479:Excess Resource Consumption Due to Low MSS Values(all Linux versions). The default maximum segment size(MSS)is hard-coded to 48 bytes which may cause an increase of fragmented packets. This vulnerability may create a resource consumption problem in both the CPU and network interface,resulting in slowness or denial of service.

VU#576688: Microsoft windows RDP Network Level Authenticaion can bypass the Windows lock screen

Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop supports a feature called Network Level Authentication(NLA),which moves the authentication aspect of a remote session from the RDP layer to the network-layer. The use of NLA is recommended to reduce the attack surface of systems exposed using the RDP protocol. In Windows a session can be locked,which presents the user with a screen that requires authentication to continue using the session. Session locking can happen over RDP in the same way that a local session can be locked. CWE-288:Authentication Bypass Using an Alternate Path or Channel(CVE-2019-9510) Starting with Windows 10 1803 and Windows Server 2019,Windows RDP handling of NLA-based RDP sessions has changed in a way that can cause unexpected behavior with respect to session locking. If a network anomaly triggers a temporary RDP disconnect,upon automatic reconnection the RDP session will be restored to an unlocked state,regardless of how the remote system was left. For example,consider the following steps: User connects to remote Windows 10 1803 or Server 2019 or newer system using RDP. User locks remote desktop session. User leaves the physical vicinity of the system being used as an RDP client At this point,an attacker can interrupt the network connectivity of the RDP client system,which will result in the session with the remote system being unlocked without requiring any credentials. Two-factor authentication systems that integrate with the Windows login screen,such as Duo Security MFA,are also bypassed using this mechanism. Any login banners enforced by an organization will also be bypassed.

VU#119704: Microsoft Windows Task Scheduler SetJobFileSecurityByName privilege escalation vulnerability

Task Scheduler is a set of Microsoft Windows components that allows for the execution of scheduled tasks. The front-end components of Task Scheduler,such as schtasks.exe,are interfaces that allow for users to view,create,and modify scheduled tasks. The back-end part of Task Scheduler is a Windows service that runs with SYSTEM privileges. One of the libraries used by the Task Scheduler service,schedsvc.dll,has a function called tsched::SetJobFileSecurityByName(),which sets permissions of job files. The permissions of the job file in the%Windir%\system32\tasks directory are modified to give the calling user full permissions to the job file that they have created. At the point where the SetSecurityInfo()function is called,the Task Scheduler service has the NT Authority\SYSTEM security token. This means that the Task Scheduler service can give full user access permissions to files that may only be controlled by the SYSTEM or other privileged accounts. Public proof-of-concept exploit code leverages the legacy schtasks.exe and schedsvc.dll code from Windows XP to take advantage of these high privilege levels when setting file permissions. Versions of Windows prior to Vista used job files in the%Windir%\jobs directory. Legacy versions of schtasks.exe will cause these jobs to be migrated to the%Windir%\system32\tasks directory when those program versions are executed on modern Windows platforms. In conjunction with the SYSTEM security token used by the Task Scheduler service,this migration behavior can be used along with hard links to grant full permissions of protected files to any user on a Windows system. We have confirmed that the public exploit code functions reliably on 32- and 64-bit Windows 10 platforms,as well as Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server 2019.

VU#166939: Broadcom WiFi chipset drivers contain multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerabilities in the open source brcmfmac driver: CVE-2019-9503:If the brcmfmac driver receives a firmware event frame from a remote source,the is_wlc_event_frame function will cause this frame to be discarded and not be processed. If the driver receives the firmware event frame from the host,the appropriate handler is called. This frame validation can be bypassed if the bus used is USB(for instance by a wifi dongle.). This can allow firmware event frames from a remote source to be processed. CVE-2019-9500:If the Wake-up on Wireless LAN functionality is configured,a malicious event frame can be constructed to trigger an heap buffer overflow in the brcmf_wowl_nd_results function. This vulnerability can be exploited by compromised chipsets to compromise the host,or when used in combination with the above frame validation bypass,can be used remotely. NOTE:The brcmfmac driver only works with Broadcom FullMAC chipsets. Vulnerabilities in the Broadcom wl driver: Two heap buffer overflows can be triggered in the client when parsing an EAPOL message 3 during the 4-way handshake from the access point(AP). CVE-2019-9501:By supplying a vendor information element with a data length larger than 32 bytes,a heap buffer overflow is triggered in wlc_wpa_sup_eapol. CVE-2019-9502:If the vendor information element data length is larger than 164 bytes,a heap buffer overflow is triggered in wlc_wpa_plumb_gtk. NOTE:When the wl driver is used with SoftMAC chipsets,these vulnerabilities are triggered in the host's kernel. When a FullMAC chipset is being used,these vulnerabilities would be triggered in the chipset's firmware.

VU#871675: Multiple vulnerabilities identified in WPA3 protocol design and implementations of hostapd and wpa_supplicant components

CERT continues to review the WPA3 protocol in support of this body of research. The root cause of the numerous"implementation"vulnerabilities may involve modifying the protocol. WPA3 uses Simultaneous Authentication of Equals(SAE),also known as Dragonfly Key Exchange,as the initial key exchange protocol,replacing WPA2's Pre-Shared Key(PSK)protocol. hostapd is a daemon for access point and authentication servers used by WPA3 authentication. wpa_supplicant is a wireless supplicant that implements key negotiation with the WPA Authenticator and supports WPA3. Both of these components,as implemented with Extensible Authentication Protocol Password(EAP-PWD)and SAE,are vulnerable as follows: CVE-2019-9494:SAE cache attack against ECC groups(SAE side-channel attacks)- CWE-208 and CWE-524 The implementations of SAE in hostapd and wpa_supplicant are vulnerable to side channel attacks as a result of observable timing differences and cache access patterns. CVE-2019-9495:EAP-PWD cache attack against ECC groups(EAP-PWD side-channel attack)- CWE-524 The implementations of EAP-PWD in hostapd and wpa_supplicant are vulnerable to side channel attacks as a result of cache access patterns. All versions of hostapd and wpa_supplicant with EAP-PWD support are vulnerable. CVE-2019-9496:SAE confirm missing state validation - CWE-642 An invalid authentication sequence could result in the hostapd process terminating due to missing state validation steps when processing the SAE confirm message when in hostapd/AP mode. All version of hostapd with SAE support are vulnerable. CVE-2019-9497:EAP-PWD reflection attack(EAP-PWD missing commit validation)- CWE-301 The implementations of EAP-PWD in hostapd EAP Server and wpa_supplicant EAP Peer do not validate the scalar and element values in EAP-pwd-Commit. CVE-2019-9498:EAP-PWD server missing commit validation for scalar/element - CWE-346 The implementations of EAP-PWD in hostapd EAP Server,when built against a crypto library missing explicit validation on imported elements,do not validate the scalar and element values in EAP-pwd-Commit. CVE-2019-9499:EAP-PWD peer missing commit validation for scalar/element - CWE-346 The implementations of EAP-PWD in wpa_supplicant EAP Peer,when built against a crypto library missing explicit validation on imported elements,do not validate the scalar and element values in EAP-pwd-Commit.
