computer vulnerability alert CVE-2016-1951

NSPR: buffer overflow via GrowStuff

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can generate a buffer overflow in GrowStuff of NSPR, in order to trigger a denial of service, and possibly to run code.
Impacted products: Debian, Juniper SBR, NSPR, Ubuntu.
Severity: 2/4.
Consequences: administrator access/rights, privileged access/rights, user access/rights, denial of service on server, denial of service on service, denial of service on client.
Provenance: internet server.
Creation date: 13/06/2016.
Identifiers: 1174015, CERTFR-2019-AVI-325, CVE-2016-1951, DLA-513-1, DSA-3687-1, JSA10939, USN-3023-1, USN-3028-1, VIGILANCE-VUL-19876.

Description of the vulnerability

The NSPR library provides functions for memory management.

The routine GrowStuff reallocates a buffer. However, on 32 bits platform, an arithmetic overflow may occur, which leads to a buffer overflow because the actually allocated size is too small.

An attacker can therefore generate a buffer overflow in GrowStuff of NSPR, in order to trigger a denial of service, and possibly to run code.

Mozilla NSS: invalid result of mp_div/mp_exptmod

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can use an error of NSS mp_div and mp_exptmod, in order to bypass some security feature.
Impacted products: Debian, Juniper SBR, NSS, openSUSE, openSUSE Leap, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, SLES, Ubuntu.
Severity: 3/4.
Consequences: data reading, data creation/edition.
Provenance: internet client.
Creation date: 27/01/2016.
Identifiers: CERTFR-2019-AVI-325, CVE-2016-1938, DLA-480-1, DSA-3688-1, JSA10939, MFSA-2016-07, openSUSE-SU-2016:0306-1, openSUSE-SU-2016:0309-1, SUSE-SU-2016:0334-1, SUSE-SU-2016:0338-1, USN-2903-1, USN-2903-2, VIGILANCE-VUL-18824.

Description of the vulnerability

The Mozilla NSS library provides Multi-Precision computation functions:
 - mp_div : division
 - mp_exptmod : modular exponentiation
They are used by public key algorithms.

However, these functions are incorrectly implemented, and sometimes generate invalid results.

An attacker can therefore use an error of NSS mp_div and mp_exptmod, in order to bypass some security feature.

Description of the vulnerability

The OpenSSL library can be used by a multi-threaded client.

However, in this case, the SSL_CTX structure does not contain an updated PSK Identify Hint. OpenSSL can thus free twice the same memory area.

An attacker can therefore force the usage of a freed memory area via PSK Identify Hint of an OpenSSL multi-threaded client, in order to trigger a denial of service, and possibly to run code.

Description of the vulnerability

The OpenSSL library supports the PKCS#7 and CMS formats.

However, if an X509_ATTRIBUTE structure is malformed, OpenSSL does not initialize a memory area before returning it to the user reading PKCS#7 or CMS data.

It can be noted that SSL/TLS is not impacted.

An attacker can therefore read a memory fragment via X509_ATTRIBUTE of OpenSSL processing PKCS#7 or CMS data, in order to obtain sensitive information.

Description of the vulnerability

The OpenSSL library can use the RSA PSS algorithm to check the validity of X.509 certificates.

However, if the "mask generation" parameter is missing during the verification of a signature in ASN.1 format, OpenSSL does not check if a pointer is NULL, before using it.

An attacker can therefore force a NULL pointer to be dereferenced during the certificate verification of OpenSSL (in client or server mode), in order to trigger a denial of service.

Description of the vulnerability

The OpenSSL library uses the BN_mod_exp() function to perform a modular exponentiation on large numbers.

However, on an x86_64 processor, the BN_mod_exp() function can generate an incorrect result during the Montgomery Squaring procedure.

An attacker, with a significant amount of resources, can therefore attack the DH algorithm, in some OpenSSL usages, in order to compute the private key.

Description of the vulnerability

The Bouncy Castle and Oracle Java products implement algorithms based on elliptic curves.

However, if the client forces the server to compute a common secret based on points located outside the chosen curve, he can progressively guess the full server key.

An attacker can therefore use a vulnerability in the elliptic curve implementation of Bouncy Castle and Oracle Java, in order to obtain sensitive information.

Description of the vulnerability

The TLS protocol uses the NewSessionTicket message to obtain a new session ticket (RFC 5077).

The ssl3_get_new_session_ticket() function of the ssl/s3_clnt.c file implements NewSessionTicket in an OpenSSL client. However, if the client is multi-threaded, this function frees a memory area before reusing it.

An attacker, who own a malicious TLS server, can therefore send the NewSessionTicket message, to force the usage of a freed memory area in a client linked to OpenSSL, in order to trigger a denial of service, and possibly to execute code.
