CVE-2017-5495

Status Candidate

Overview

All versions of Quagga, 0.93 through 1.1.0, are vulnerable to an unbounded memory allocation in the telnet 'vty' CLI, leading to a Denial-of-Service of Quagga daemons, or even the entire host. When Quagga daemons are configured with their telnet CLI enabled, anyone who can connect to the TCP ports can trigger this vulnerability, prior to authentication. Most distributions restrict the Quagga telnet interface to local access only by default. The Quagga telnet interface 'vty' input buffer grows automatically, without bound, so long as a newline is not entered. This allows an attacker to cause the Quagga daemon to allocate unbounded memory by sending very long strings without a newline. Eventually the daemon is terminated by the system, or the system itself runs out of memory. This is fixed in Quagga 1.1.1 and Free Range Routing (FRR) Protocol Suite 2017-01-10.

Ubuntu Security Notice 3471-1 - Andreas Jaggi discovered that Quagga incorrectly handled certain BGP UPDATE messages. A remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause Quagga to crash, resulting in a denial of service. Quentin Young discovered that Quagga incorrectly handled memory in the telnet vty CLI. An attacker able to connect to the telnet interface could possibly use this issue to cause Quagga to consume memory, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Various other issues were also addressed.

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0794-01
Posted Mar 21, 2017

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-0794-01 - The quagga packages contain Quagga, the free network-routing software suite that manages TCP/IP based protocols. Quagga supports the BGP4, BGP4+, OSPFv2, OSPFv3, RIPv1, RIPv2, and RIPng protocols, and is intended to be used as a Route Server and Route Reflector. Security Fix: A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Quagga handled IPv6 router advertisement messages. A remote attacker could use this flaw to crash the zebra daemon resulting in denial of service.
