CVE-2019-19726

Status Candidate

Overview

OpenBSD through 6.6 allows local users to escalate to root because a check for LD_LIBRARY_PATH in setuid programs can be defeated by setting a very small RLIMIT_DATA resource limit. When executing chpass or passwd (which are setuid root), _dl_setup_env in ld.so tries to strip LD_LIBRARY_PATH from the environment, but fails when it cannot allocate memory. Thus, the attacker is able to execute their own library code as root.

OpenBSD Dynamic Loader chpass Privilege Escalation
Posted Dec 27, 2019
Authored by Brendan Coles, Qualys Security Advisory | Site metasploit.com

This Metasploit module exploits a vulnerability in the OpenBSD ld.so dynamic loader (CVE-2019-19726). The _dl_getenv() function fails to reset the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable when set with approximately ARG_MAX colons. This can be abused to load libutil.so from an untrusted path, using LD_LIBRARY_PATH in combination with the chpass set-uid executable, resulting in privileged code execution. This module has been tested successfully on OpenBSD 6.1 (amd64) and OpenBSD 6.6 (amd64).

Qualys Security Advisory - OpenBSD Dynamic Loader Privilege Escalation
Posted Dec 12, 2019
Authored by Qualys Security Advisory

Qualys discovered a local privilege escalation in OpenBSD's dynamic loader (ld.so). This vulnerability is exploitable in the default installation (via the set-user-ID executable chpass or passwd) and yields full root privileges. They developed a simple proof of concept and successfully tested it against OpenBSD 6.6 (the current release), 6.5, 6.2, and 6.1, on both amd64 and i386; other releases and architectures are probably also exploitable.
