eEye Security Advisory - eEye Digital Security has discovered a critical vulnerability in both RealSecure and BlackICE. The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to reliably overwrite heap memory with user-controlled data and execute arbitrary code within the SYSTEM context. This attack will succeed with BlackICE using its most paranoid settings.

Description:
The RealSecure and BlackICE product lines from Internet Security Systems
offer host-based intrusion detection/prevention for large servers and
home networks. By design, these products attempt to identify and block
network attacks and intrusions.

eEye Digital Security has discovered a critical vulnerability in both
RealSecure and BlackICE. The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to
reliably overwrite heap memory with user-controlled data and execute
arbitrary code within the SYSTEM context. This attack will succeed with
BlackICE using its most paranoid settings.

This specific flaw exists within the component that handles the
processing of Server Message Block (SMB) packets. By issuing an
authentication request with a long username value, a direct heap
overwrite is triggered, and reliable code execution is then possible.

Technical Description:
An IDS/IPS system, by its very nature, requires that every packet
entering a system be parsed and dealt with accordingly. When BlackICE
and RealSecure encounter an SMB packet, the packet is analyzed,
processed and re-assembled. It is during this assembly phase that our
custom data is passed to an insufficiently sized heap-based buffer. All
processing is conducted before any authentication.

To successfully replicate this vulnerability only one SMB packet is
required. The client must issue an "SMB Session Setup AndX request".
This SMB is used to "set up" a session previously established with the
negotiate protocol. A primary function of this request is to perform a
user login to a remote host. As neither RealSecure nor BlackICE require
the state to be kept, no previous negotiation is required. To cause a
reliable heap overwrite, the AccountName parameter should contain a
string with a length of 300 bytes or greater.

Please refer to the SNIA Common Internet File System Technical Reference
(http://www.snia.org/tech_activities/CIFS/CIFS-TR-1p00_FINAL.pdf) for
detailed information on the required packet structures.

In the end, this vulnerability equates to a textbook heap overwrite
vulnerability, and code execution is effortless.
