CVE-2005-0464

Status Candidate

Overview

gr_osview in SGI IRIX 6.5.22, and possibly other 6.5 versions, does not drop privileges when opening description files while in debug mode, which allows local users to read a line from arbitrary files via the -d and -D options, which prints the line as a formatting error.

iDEFENSE Security Advisory 2005-04-07.1

iDEFENSE Security Advisory 04.07.05 - Local exploitation of an information disclosure vulnerability in the gr_osview command included in multiple versions of Silicon Graphics Inc.'s IRIX Operating System could allow for the disclosure of sensitive information such as the root user's password hash. The vulnerability specifically exists in the way that gr_osview opens user-specified description files without dropping privileges. When this is combined with the debug option, it is possible to dump a line from an arbitrary file, regardless of its protection.
