CVE-2014-6040

Status Candidate

Overview

GNU C Library (aka glibc) before 2.20 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and crash) via a multibyte character value of "0xffff" to the iconv function when converting (1) IBM933, (2) IBM935, (3) IBM937, (4) IBM939, or (5) IBM1364 encoded data to UTF-8.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-0327-02

Red Hat Security Advisory 2015-0327-02 - The glibc packages provide the standard C libraries, POSIX thread libraries, standard math libraries, and the Name Server Caching Daemon used by multiple programs on the system. Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly. An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way glibc's iconv() function converted certain encoded data to UTF-8. An attacker able to make an application call the iconv() function with a specially crafted argument could use this flaw to crash that application. It was found that the files back end of Name Service Switch did not isolate iteration over an entire database from key-based look-up API calls. An application performing look-ups on a database while iterating over it could enter an infinite loop, leading to a denial of service.

Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly. An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way glibc's iconv() function converted certain encoded data to UTF-8. An attacker able to make an application call the iconv() function with a specially crafted argument could use this flaw to crash that application. It was found that the wordexp() function would perform command substitution even when the WRDE_NOCMD flag was specified. An attacker able to provide specially crafted input to an application using the wordexp() function, and not sanitizing the input correctly, could potentially use this flaw to execute arbitrary commands with the credentials of the user running that application.

Posted Dec 4, 2014
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 2432-1 - Siddhesh Poyarekar discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain multibyte characters when using the iconv function. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause applications to crash, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Adhemerval Zanella Netto discovered that the GNU C Library incorrectly handled certain multibyte characters when using the iconv function. An attacker could possibly use this issue to cause applications to crash, resulting in a denial of service. Various other issues were also addressed.

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2014-175
Posted Sep 8, 2014
Authored by Mandriva | Site mandriva.com

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2014-175 - When converting IBM930 code with iconv(), if IBM930 code which includes invalid multibyte character 0xffff is specified, then iconv() segfaults. Off-by-one error in the __gconv_translit_find function in gconv_trans.c in GNU C Library allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code via vectors related to the CHARSET environment variable and gconv transliteration modules. Crashes were reported in the IBM code page decoding functions (IBM933, IBM935, IBM937, IBM939, IBM1364). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
