SGI Security Advisory 20040507-01-P - Adam Gowdiak from the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center has reported that under certain conditions the /usr/sbin/cpr binary can be forced to load a user provided library while restarting the checkpointed process which can then be used to obtain root user privileges. All versions of IRIX prior to 6.5.25 are affected.

- --- Issue Specifics ---
- -----------------------

Adam Gowdiak from the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center
has reported that under certain conditions /usr/sbin/cpr binary can
be forced to load a user provided library while restarting the
checkpointed process which can be used to obtain root user privileges.

SGI has assigned the following Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
(cve.mitre.org) name to this vulnerability:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0134

SGI has investigated the issue and recommends the following steps for
resolving this issue. It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that these measures
be implemented on ALL vulnerable SGI systems. This issue has been
corrected in future releases of IRIX.


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

To determine the version of IRIX you are running, execute the following
command:

# /bin/uname -R

That will return a result similar to the following:

# 6.5 6.5.21f

The first number ("6.5") is the release name, the second ("6.5.21f" in
this case) is the extended release name. The extended release name
is the "version" we refer to throughout this document.


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

SGI has provided a series of patches for these vulnerabilities.
Our recommendation is to upgrade to IRIX 6.5.25, or install the
appropriate patches.
