By courtesy of Silicon Graphics Inc. we received information on
vulnerabilities in the visual admin and user tool programs used
in the IRIX operating systems versions, 5.2, 5.3, 6.1 and 6.2.

These vulnerabilities may allow both local and remote users to become
root on a targeted SGI system.

CERT-NL recommends to apply the provided patches.

Silicon Graphics Inc. Security Advisory

Title: IRIX Visual Admin/User Programs
Number: 19960801-01-PX
Date: August 16, 1996
______________________________________________________________________________

Silicon Graphics provides this information freely to the SGI user community
for its consideration, interpretation, implementation and use. Silicon
Graphics recommends that this information be acted upon as soon as possible.

Silicon Graphics will not be liable for any indirect, special, or
consequential damages arising from the use of, failure to use or improper
use of any of the instructions or information in this Security Advisory.
______________________________________________________________________________


Several security vulnerabilities have been discovered in the the visual
admin and user tool programs used in the IRIX operating systems versions,
5.2, 5.3, 6.1 and 6.2. SGI has investigated these issues and recommends
the following steps for neutralizing the exposure. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
that these measures be implemented on ALL SGI systems running IRIX versions
5.2, 5.3, 6.1 and 6.2. This issue will be corrected in future releases
of IRIX.


- - --------------
- - --- Impact ---
- - --------------

Provided with the correct network configuration and SGI environment, both
local and remote users may be able to become root on a targeted SGI system.


- - ----------------
- - --- Solution ---
- - ----------------

The solution for this issue is a replacement of the visual user and
administrator programs found in the IRIX operating systems versions
5.2, 5.3, 6.1 and 6.2. The following patches has been generated
for IRIX 5.2, 5.3, 6.1 and 6.2 and are freely provided to the SGI
community.

To determine if the visual admin/user software is installed on a
particular system, the following command can be used:

% versions desktop_eoe.sw.envm sysadmdesktop.sw.clients
I = Installed, R = Removed

Name Date Description

I desktop_eoe 02/12/96 IndigoMagic Desktop, 5.3
I desktop_eoe.sw 02/12/96 IndigoMagic Desktop, 5.3
I desktop_eoe.sw.envm 02/12/96 Desktop

I sysadmdesktop 02/12/96 Desktop System Administration, 5.3
I sysadmdesktop.sw 02/12/96 Desktop System Administration
Software, 5.3
I sysadmdesktop.sw.clients 02/12/96 Desktop System Administration
Client Software

In the above case, the software of concern is installed and the steps
below should be performed. If no output is returned by the command,
the subsystem is not installed and no further action is required.


desktop_eoe.sw.envm
sysadmdesktop.sw.clients

**** IRIX 3.x, 4.x, and 5.0.x ****

In the IRIX operating systems versions 3.x, 4.x, and 5.0.x,
the user environment and programs are different than the ones
used in later versions of IRIX. As such versions 3.x, 4.x,
and 5.0.x of IRIX do not have the security vulnerabilities
covered by this document and no further action is required.


**** IRIX 5.1.x ****

IRIX operating system version 5.1.x was a limited release version.
For the IRIX operating system version 5.1.x, an upgrade to 5.2 or
better is required first. When the upgrade is completed, then the
patches described in the following sections can be applied depending
on the final version of the upgrade.


**** IRIX 5.2 ****

For the IRIX operating system version 5.2, an inst-able patch has been
generated and made available via anonymous FTP and your service/support
provider. The patch is number 1519 and will install only on IRIX 5.2.

PLEASE NOTE: Patch 65 is also required in addition to patch 1519.

The SGI anonymous FTP site is sgigate.sgi.com (204.94.209.1) or its
mirror, ftp.sgi.com. Patches 1519 and 65 can be found in the
following directories on the FTP server:

~ftp/Security

or

~ftp/Patches/5.2
