Patch Available for "File Permission Canonicalization" Vulnerability

Originally posted: August 10, 2000

Summary
=======
Microsoft has released a patch that eliminates a security
vulnerability in Microsoft(r) Internet Information Server. Under very
restricted conditions, the vulnerability could allow a malicious user
to gain additional permissions to certain types of files hosted on a
web server.

Frequently asked questions regarding this vulnerability and the patch
can be found at
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/fq00-057.asp

Issue
=====
A canonicalization error can, under certain conditions, cause IIS 4.0
or 5.0 to apply incorrect permissions to certain types of files. If
an affected file residing in a folder with restrictive permissions
were requested via a particular type of malformed URL, the
permissions actually used would be those of a folder in the file's
parentage chain, but not those of the folder the file actually
resides in. If the ancestor folder's permissions were more permissive
than those of the correct folder, the malicious user would gain
additional privileges to the affected file.

The vulnerability is subject to several significant restrictions:
- It only affects CGI scripts and file types that are implemented
via ISAPI extensions. It does not affect static web page or
non-web file types such as .exe, .doc or .bat
- It only affects servers that expose a web folder structure that
mirrors the physical folder structure on the server.
- It does not allow arbitrary permissions to be selected, only
permissions present on an ancestor folder
- It provides no way to enumerate the server and locate files that
could be affected by the vulnerability.
