CVE-2011-1521

Status Candidate

Overview

The urllib and urllib2 modules in Python 2.x before 2.7.2 and 3.x before 3.2.1 process Location headers that specify redirection to file: URLs, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service (resource consumption) via a crafted URL, as demonstrated by the file:///etc/passwd and file:///dev/zero URLs.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1613-1 - It was discovered that Python would prepend an empty string to sys.path under certain circumstances. A local attacker with write access to the current working directory could exploit this to execute arbitrary code. It was discovered that the audioop module did not correctly perform input validation. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted audio file, an attacker could cause a denial of service via application crash. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1592-1 - Niels Heinen discovered that the urllib and urllib2 modules would process Location headers that specify a redirection to file: URLs. A remote attacker could exploit this to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 11.04. It was discovered that SimpleHTTPServer did not use a charset parameter in the Content-Type HTTP header. An attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks against Internet Explorer 7 users. This issue only affected Ubuntu 11.04. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice 1314-1 - Giampaolo Rodola discovered that the smtpd module in Python 3 did not properly handle certain error conditions. A remote attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service via daemon outage. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Niels Heinen discovered that the urllib module in Python 3 would process Location headers that specify a file:// URL. A remote attacker could use this to obtain sensitive information or cause a denial of service via resource consumption. Various other issues were also addressed.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2011-096
Posted May 22, 2011
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2011-096 - The is_cgi method in CGIHTTPServer.py in the CGIHTTPServer module in Python 2.5, 2.6, and 3.0 allows remote attackers to read script source code via an HTTP GET request that lacks a / character at the beginning of the URI. A flaw was found in the Python urllib and urllib2 libraries where they would not differentiate between different target URLs when handling automatic redirects. This caused Python applications using these modules to follow any new URL that they understood, including the file:// URL type. This could allow a remote server to force a local Python application to read a local file instead of the remote one, possibly exposing local files that were not meant to be exposed.
