Description of the vulnerability

Several vulnerabilities affects the Ingres database.

An unauthenticated attacker can connect to the 21064/tcp port and corrupt memory via QUremove() function in order to execute code. [severity:3/4; 115927, CAID 35450, CERTA-2007-AVI-275, CVE-2007-3336]

An unauthenticated attacker can connect to the 21064/tcp port and corrupt memory via QUinsert() function in order to execute code. [severity:3/4; 115927, CAID 35450, CERTA-2007-AVI-275, CVE-2007-3336]

The wakeup program is suid ingres. It creates the "alarmwkp.def" file in the current directory and truncates it if it already exists. A local attacker can therefore use the wakeup program to alter a file with rights of ingres user. [severity:3/4; 115913, CAID 35451, CVE-2007-3337]

The uuid_from_char SQL function creates an UUID corresponding to a pattern indicated as parameter. An authenticated attacker can use a long parameter in order to generate a buffer overflow in uuid_from_char. [severity:3/4; 115911, CAID 35452, CVE-2007-3338]

The verifydb program is installed suid ingres. When its '-dbms_test' parameter is too long, an overflow occurs in the duve_get_args() function. [severity:3/4; 115911, CAID 35452, CVE-2007-3338]

Under Windows, an attacker can connect to the 10916/tcp port (iigcc.exe, Communications Server) in order to generate an overflow. [severity:3/4; 117523, CVE-2007-3334]

Under Windows, an attacker can connect to the 10923/tcp port (iigcd.exe, Data Access server) in order to generate an overflow. [severity:3/4; 117523, CVE-2007-3334]

These vulnerabilities permit a local or remote attacker to execute code.
