zlib inflate() routine vulnerable to buffer overflow

Vulnerability Note VU#680620

Original Release Date: 2005-07-07 | Last Revised: 2007-04-05

Overview

A buffer overflow in the zlib compression library may cause any application linked to zlib to improperly and immediately terminate.

Description

There is a buffer overflow in the zlib data-compression library caused by a lack of bounds checking in the inflate() routine. If an attacker supplies the inflate()routine with a specially crafted compressed data stream, that attacker may be able to trigger the buffer overflow causing any application linked to zlib, or incorporating zlib code to crash. According to reports, the buffer overflow is caused by a specific input stream and results in a constant value being written into an arbitrary memory location. This vulnerability may be exploited locally or remotely depending on the application being attacked.

This vulnerability only affects zlib versions 1.2.1 and 1.2.2.

Impact

A remote attacker be able to exploit this vulnerability by supplying the inflate() routine with specially crafted compressed data. As a result, applications linked to the zlib library may abruptly and abnormally terminate resulting in a denial-of-service condition. According to public reports, this vulnerability can be exploited to execute arbitrary code, but we have not confirmed this.

Solution

Apply patches from your vendor


The zlib compression library is freely available and used by many vendors in a wide variety of applications. As a result, any one of these applications may contain this vulnerabilitiy. Users are encouraged to contact their vendors to determine if they are vulnerable and what action to take.

CVS Home Affected

Updated:  October 05, 2005

Status

Affected

Vendor Statement

We have not received a statement from the vendor.

Vendor Information

The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.

Addendum

From the CVS version 1.12.13 NEWS file:

CVS now uses version 1.2.3 of the ZLib compression libraries in order to avoid two recently announced security vulnerabilities in them.  Both may be used for denial of service attacks and one may reportedly allow execution of arbitrary code, though this is not confirmed.  Please see the CERT vulnerabilities advisories #238678 <http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/238678> & #680620 <http://www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/680620> for more.

Note that according to CVS HOME, CVS development and the CVS information pages have moved to http://www.nongnu.org/cvs/.

NetBSD Security Note 20050708-1
===============================

Topic:NetBSD base system not vulnerable to zlib overflow
pkgsrc did provide vulnerable versions

A zlib buffer overflow has been announced.

http://www.cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=2005-2096

The NetBSD Security Officer team was aware of this issue, and would
like to reassure users that the NetBSD base system is not vulnerable.

The bug was introduced in changes to zlib after 1.1.4, the latest
version supplied in the base install of NetBSD.

The vulnerable version, 1.2.2 has been available from pkgsrc.

Users of the audit-packages tool will already have noticed that version
is marked as vulnerable, and the 1.2.2nb1 update addresses the issue.

Other pkgsrc users are encouraged to update devel/zlib to 1.2.2nb1, as
well as to take advantage of the security/audit-packages infrastructure.

For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories,
including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the
following sections, please visit
<URL:http://www.freebsd.org/security/>.

I.   Background

zlib is a compression library used by numerous applications to provide
data compression/decompression routines.

II.  Problem Description

An error in the handling of corrupt compressed data streams can result
in a buffer being overflowed.

III. Impact

By carefully crafting a corrupt compressed data stream, an attacker can
overwrite data structures in a zlib-using application.  This may cause
the application to halt, causing a denial of service; or it may result
in the attacker gaining elevated privileges.

IV.  Workaround

No workaround is available.

V.   Solution

Perform one of the following:

1) Upgrade your vulnerable system to 5-STABLE, or to the RELENG_5_4 or
RELENG_5_3 security branch dated after the correction date.

2) To patch your present system:

The following patch has been verified to apply to FreeBSD 5.3 and 5.4
systems.

a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the
detached PGP signature using your PGP utility.

# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-05:16/zlib.patch
# fetch ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/CERT/patches/SA-05:16/zlib.patch.asc

b) Execute the following commands as root:

# cd /usr/src
# patch < /path/to/patch
# cd /usr/src/lib/libz/
# make obj && make depend && make && make install
