TITLE:
Red Hat update for redhat-ds-admin

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA29761

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/29761/

CRITICAL:
Moderately critical

IMPACT:
Security Bypass, System access

WHERE:
>From local network

SOFTWARE:
Red Hat Directory Server 8.x
http://secunia.com/product/18012/

DESCRIPTION:
Red Hat has issued an update for redhat-ds-admin. This fixes some
vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious users to
compromise a vulnerable system and by malicious people to bypass
certain security restrictions.

1) Certain input passed to the repl-monitor-cgi.pl CGI script is not
properly sanitised before being used in a "system()" call, which can
be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary shell commands.

Successful exploitation allows the execution of arbitrary commands
with the privileges of the Administration Server (default "nobody"),
but requires access to the "replication monitor" page.

2) Access to certain scripts is not properly restricted. This can be
exploited to e.g. disclose information or perform certain restricted
tasks.

Successful exploitation requires access to the Administration
Server's port (default 9830/TCP).

NOTE: An unauthenticated attacker can exploit a combination of the
two vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary commands with the privileges
of the Administration Server.

SOLUTION:
Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Red Hat credits Richard Megginson.
