FreeBSD Security Advisory - FreeBSD-SA-18:01.ipsec
Posted Mar 7, 2018
Authored by Maxime Villard | Site security.freebsd.org

FreeBSD Security Advisory - Due to a lack of strict checking, an attacker from a trusted host can send a specially constructed IP packet that may lead to a system crash. Additionally, a use-after-free vulnerability in the AH handling code could cause unpredictable results. Access to out of bounds or freed mbuf data can lead to a kernel panic or other unpredictable results.

For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit <URL:https://security.FreeBSD.org/>.

I. Background

The IPsec suite of protocols provide network level security for IPv4 and IPv6
packets. FreeBSD includes software originally developed by the KAME project
which implements the various protocols that make up IPsec.

In IPsec, the IP Authentication Header (AH) is used to provide protection
against replay attacks and connectionless integrity and data origin
authentication for IP datagrams.

II. Problem Description

Due to a lack of strict checking, an attacker from a trusted host can
send a specially constructed IP packet that may lead to a system crash.

Additionally, a use-after-free vulnerability in the AH handling code could
cause unpredictable results.

III. Impact

Access to out of bounds or freed mbuf data can lead to a kernel panic or
other unpredictable results.

IV. Workaround

No workaround is available, but systems not using IPsec are not vulnerable.

V. Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to a supported FreeBSD stable or
release / security branch (releng) dated after the correction date.
And reboot the system.

2) To update your vulnerable system via a binary patch:

Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64
platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility:

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install
And reboot the system

3) To update your vulnerable system via a source code patch:

The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable
FreeBSD release branches.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

[FreeBSD 10.x]
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-18:01/ipsec-10.patch
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-18:01/ipsec-10.patch.asc
# gpg --verify ipsec-10.patch.asc

[FreeBSD 11.1]
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-18:01/ipsec-11.patch
# fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-18:01/ipsec-11.patch.asc
# gpg --verify ipsec-11.patch.asc

b) Apply the patch. Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch

c) Recompile your kernel as described in
<URL:https://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/kernelconfig.html> and reboot the
system.

VI. Correction details

The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each
affected branch.

Branch/path Revision
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
stable/10/ r330565
releng/10.3/ r330566
releng/10.4/ r330566
stable/11/ r329907
releng/11.1/ r330566
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

To see which files were modified by a particular revision, run the
following command, replacing NNNNNN with the revision number, on a
machine with Subversion installed:

# svn diff -cNNNNNN --summarize svn://svn.freebsd.org/base

Or visit the following URL, replacing NNNNNN with the revision number:

<URL:https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=NNNNNN>
