iDEFENSE Security Advisory 11.15.04 - Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Fcron 2.0.1 and 2.9.4. Local exploitation of vulnerabilities in the fcronsighup component of Fcron may allow users to view the contents of root owned files, bypass access restrictions, and remove arbitrary files or create arbitrary empty files.
Multiple Security Vulnerabilities in Fcron iDEFENSE Security Advisory 11.15.04 www.idefense.com/application/poi/display?id=157&type=vulnerabilities November 15, 2004 I. BACKGROUND Fcron is a periodical command scheduler which aims at replacing Vixie Cron, and implements most of its functionalities. More information about Fcron is available from http://fcron.free.fr/description.php. II. DESCRIPTION Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Fcron. **** ISSUE 1 - File contents disclosure **** Local exploitation of a design error vulnerability in the fcronsighup component of Fcron may allow users to view the contents of root owned files. The vulnerability specifically exists within the set user id (setuid) root program fcronsighup. When the filename of a root owned file is passed as an argument to this program, it attempts to parse the file as a configuration file. Any lines in the file that are not parsable will be output as error messages. The following example demonstrates how an attacker can abuse this vulnerability to glean sensitive information from the /etc/shadow password file: bash$ fcronsighup /etc/shadow 14:33:09 Unknown var name at line root:<password-hash>:12475:0:99999:7::: : line ignored **** ISSUE 2 - Configuration Bypass Vulnerability **** Local exploitation of a design error vulnerability in the fcronsighup component of Fcron may allow users to bypass access restrictions. The problem specifically exists in the checking performed by the fcronsighup utility on the file passed as a configuration file. It checks if the file is root owned, and not writable by any other users. When a setuid process is run by an ordinary user the /proc filesystem pseudofiles associated with it are owned by root and the contents of the "cmdline" and "evironment" files are controllable by the user. By pointing the fcronsighup configuration file to a /proc entry owned by root, such as /proc/self/cmdline or /proc/self/environ, it is possible for a user to supply their own configuration settings. **** ISSUE 3 - File Removal and Empty File Creation Vulnerability**** Local exploitation of a design error vulnerability in the fcronsighup component of Fcron may allow users to remove arbitrary files or create arbitrary empty files. The vulnerability specifically exists in the fcronsighup utility which does signaling of the running fcron daemon. Fcronsighup creates a file named in part from a value read from configuration file. This file is created using open() with O_RDWR|O_CREAT and 0644 parameters while running with full root privileges. After some time has passed the file is removed. The filename string is generated by the following code: snprintf(sigfile, sizeof(sigfile), "%s/fcrontab.sig", fcrontabs); By padding the front of the filename with a large number of slash symbols ("/") it is possible to create or remove a file in an arbitrary location. For example: to create the file /tmp/owned, the configuration option which sets the value for "fcrontabs" can be set to contain (sizeof(sigfile)-strlen("/tmp/owned")) "/" characters, followed by the string "/tmp/owned". The code will attempt to append the string "/fcrontab.sig" to this string, but the limitation imposed on it by the call to snprintf() will cause it to fail. When the filename is resolved, the extra "/"s in the filename are ignored, resulting in an absolute reference to the file /tmp/owned. **** ISSUE 4 - Information Disclosure Vulnerability **** Local exploitation of a design error vulnerability in the fcrontab component of Fcron may allow users to view the contents of fcron.allow and fcron.deny. The problem specifically exists because Fcron leaks the file descriptors of the opened files /etc/fcron.allow and /etc/fcron.deny to the invoked editor. The default permissions on these files do not allow them to be read by unprivileged users: -rw-r----- 1 root fcron 253 Jul 29 12:45 /etc/fcron.allow -rw-r----- 1 root fcron 255 Jul 29 12:45 /etc/fcron.deny An attacker can exploit this vulnerability by setting the EDITOR environment variable to a program which outputs the contents of the open file descriptor; descriptor 3 to view the contents of fcron.allow and descriptor 4 to view the contents of fcron.deny. III. ANALYSIS Local users can bypass configuration settings, remove arbitrary files, create files with root permissions, read the contents of root owned files and send a SIGHUP to any process, potentially killing it. These actions may allow them to perform a denial of service or potentially elevate their privileges. IV. DETECTION iDEFENSE has confirmed that Fcron versions 2.0.1 and 2.9.4 are vulnerable. It is suspected that earlier versions are also affected. V. WORKAROUND Consider changing the permissions on the fcronsighup binary to only allow trusted users access. Make the binary only executable by users in the 'trusted' group by performing the following commands as root: # chown root:trusted /usr/bin/fcronsighup # chmod 4110 /usr/bin/fcronsighup Also consider performing the same operation on the fcrontab binary to prevent exploitation of Issue 4. VI. VENDOR RESPONSE The following releases are available to address these vulnerabilities: 2.0.2 : stable branch http://fcron.free.fr/archives/fcron-2.0.2.src.tar.gz (France) or ftp://ftp.seul.org/pub/fcron/fcron-2.0.2.src.tar.gz (USA) 22.214.171.124 : dev branch http://fcron.free.fr/archives/fcron-126.96.36.199.src.tar.gz (France) or ftp://ftp.seul.org/pub/fcron/fcron-188.8.131.52.src.tar.gz (USA) VII.

|Fcron is reported prone to multiple local vulnerabilities. The following issues are reported:
A local information disclosure vulnerability is reported to affect fcronsighup. It is reported that the affected utility will attempt to parse configuration files that are passed to the utility as a command line argument.
A local attacker may exploit this condition to reveal the contents of arbitrary files that are owned by the superuser. This vulnerability is assigned the following MITRE CVE identifier: CAN-2004-1030.
An access control bypass vulnerability is also reported to affect fcronsighup. It is reported that the issue exists due to a design error.
A local attacker may exploit this vulnerability to make configuration changes to fcronsighup. This vulnerability is assigned the following MITRE CVE identifier: CAN-2004-1031.
fcronsighup is reported prone to an arbitrary file deletion vulnerability. By exploiting the aforementioned access control bypass vulnerability, a local attacker may influence the fcronsighup configuration and may cause the application to overwrite arbitrary attacker specified files. This vulnerability is assigned the following MITRE CVE identifier: CAN-2004-1032.
Finally it is reported that the fcrontab component of Fcron leaks file descriptors. This can result in sensitive information disclosure. Specifically, fcrontab leaks the file descriptors of the '/etc/fcron.allow' and '/etc/fcron.deny' files. This vulnerability is assigned the following MITRE CVE identifier: CAN-2004-1033.
No exploit is required.
