CVE-2010-0393

Status Candidate

Overview

The _cupsGetlang function, as used by lppasswd.c in lppasswd in CUPS 1.2.2, 1.3.7, 1.3.9, and 1.4.1, relies on an environment variable to determine the file that provides localized message strings, which allows local users to gain privileges via a file that contains crafted localization data with format string specifiers.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2010-073 - CUPS in does not properly handle (1) HTTP headers and (2) HTML templates, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and HTTP response splitting attacks via vectors related to (a) the product's web interface, (b) the configuration of the print system, and (c) the titles of printed jobs. Use-after-free vulnerability in the abstract file-descriptor handling interface in the cupsdDoSelect function in scheduler/select.c in the scheduler in cupsd in CUPS 1.3.7 and 1.3.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash or hang) via a client disconnection during listing of a large number of print jobs, related to improperly maintaining a reference count. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information. Use-after-free vulnerability in the abstract file-descriptor handling interface in the cupsdDoSelect function in scheduler/select.c in the scheduler in cupsd in CUPS 1.3.7, 1.3.9, 1.3.10, and 1.4.1, when kqueue or epoll is used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash or hang) via a client disconnection during listing of a large number of print jobs, related to improperly maintaining a reference count. NOTE: some of these details are obtained from third party information. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-3553. The _cupsGetlang function, as used by lppasswd.c in lppasswd in CUPS 1.2.2, 1.3.7, 1.3.9, and 1.4.1, relies on an environment variable to determine the file that provides localized message strings, which allows local users to gain privileges via a file that contains crafted localization data with format string specifiers. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. Packages for Mandriva Linux 2010.0 was missing with MDVSA-2010:073. This advisory provides packages for 2010.0 as well.

Debian Linux Security Advisory 2007-1
Posted Mar 5, 2010
Authored by Debian | Site debian.org

Debian Linux Security Advisory 2007-1 - Ronald Volgers discovered that the lppasswd component of the cups suite, the Common UNIX Printing System, is vulnerable to format string attacks due to insecure use of the LOCALEDIR environment variable. An attacker can abuse this behaviour to execute arbitrary code via crafted localization files and triggering calls to _cupsLangprintf(). This works as the lppasswd binary happens to be installed with setuid 0 permissions.

Ubuntu Security Notice 906-1
Posted Mar 3, 2010
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 906-1 - It was discovered that the CUPS scheduler did not properly handle certain network operations. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw and cause the CUPS server to crash, resulting in a denial of service. Ronald Volgers discovered that the CUPS lppasswd tool could be made to load localized message strings from arbitrary files by setting an environment variable. A local attacker could exploit this with a format-string vulnerability leading to a root privilege escalation. The default compiler options for Ubuntu 8.10, 9.04 and 9.10 should reduce this vulnerability to a denial of service.
