TITLE : Vulnerabilities in StarScheduler
DATE : March 09, 2000
NATURE : Denial-of-Service, Remote Code Execution, Access to
privileged files
PLATFORMS : StarScheduler/StarOffice 5.1

DETAILS:

StarOffice comes with a nice groupware server, called StarScheduler. It
also includes a web server that is vulnerable to several security
problems.

PROBLEM:

A buffer overflow exists in the StarScheduler web server (which listens
on port 801), that can lead to remote execution of code and root access.
Since the server dies, this is also a Denial-of-Service issue. The
problem is in the way web server handles long requests.

Sending a "GET /['A' x 933] HTTP/1.0" will crash the server. This web
server is running as a root.

Another silly problem exists in the server that allows any user to gain
read access to files to which they normally don't have access to.
Example:

http://starscheduler_server:801/../../../../etc/shadow

This will display the content of the /etc/shadow file.

FIXES:

No fixes are available yet. Sun has been contacted on 6th of February,
but we have received no response from them.
