CVE-2013-4788

Status Candidate

Overview

The PTR_MANGLE implementation in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.4, 2.17, and earlier, and Embedded GLIBC (EGLIBC) does not initialize the random value for the pointer guard, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to control execution flow by leveraging a buffer-overflow vulnerability in an application and using the known zero value pointer guard to calculate a pointer address.

Gentoo Linux Security Advisory 201503-4 - Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in GNU C Library, the worst of which allowing a local attacker to execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service. Versions less than 2.19-r1 are affected.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-284
Posted Nov 26, 2013

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-284 - Integer overflow in string/strcoll_l.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.17 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long string, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. Stack-based buffer overflow in string/strcoll_l.c in the GNU C Library 2.17 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long string that triggers a malloc failure and use of the alloca function. Multiple integer overflows in malloc/malloc.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.18 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service via a large value to the aligned_alloc functions. A stack overflow flaw, which led to a denial of service (application crash), was found in the way glibc's getaddrinfo() function processed certain requests when called with AF_INET6. A similar flaw to this affects AF_INET6 rather than AF_UNSPEC. The PTR_MANGLE implementation in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.4, 2.17, and earlier, and Embedded GLIBC does not initialize the random value for the pointer guard, which makes it easier for context- dependent attackers to control execution flow by leveraging a buffer-overflow vulnerability in an application and using the known zero value pointer guard to calculate a pointer address. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-283

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2013-283 - Updated glibc packages fix multiple security issues. Integer overflow in string/strcoll_l.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.17 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long string, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. Stack-based buffer overflow in string/strcoll_l.c in the GNU C Library 2.17 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long string that triggers a malloc failure and use of the alloca function. pt_chown in GNU C Library before 2.18 does not properly check permissions for tty files, which allows local users to change the permission on the files and obtain access to arbitrary pseudo-terminals by leveraging a FUSE file system. Various other issues were also addressed.

Eglibc PTR MANGLE Bug
Posted Jul 16, 2013
Authored by Hector Marco, Ismael Ripoll

Eglibc suffers from a PTR MANGLE bug. All statically linked applications compiled with glibc and eglibc are affected, independent of the operating system distribution. Note that this problem is not solved by only patching the eglibc, but it is also necessary to recompile all static executables. Proof of concept exploit included.
