Buffer overflow in Snort RPC preprocessor

Vulnerability Note VU#916785

Original Release Date: 2003-03-03 | Last Revised: 2003-05-20

Overview

There is a buffer overflow vulnerability in the RPC preprocessing feature of Snort versions 1.8 through 1.9.0 and 2.0 beta.

Description

Martin Roesch, the primary Snort developer, described the vulnerability by saying:

When the RPC decoder normalizes fragmented RPC records, it incorrectly checks the lengths of what is being normalized against the current packet size, leading to an overflow condition. The RPC preprocessor is enabled by default.

The ISS X-Force team has published an advisory with additional information on this issue:

http://www.iss.net/issEn/delivery/xforce/alertdetail.jsp?oid=21951

Information about this vulnerability can also be found on the Snort web site at:

http://www.snort.org/

Impact

A remote attacker can execute arbitrary code as the user running the Snort process, usually root. The attacker does not need to send packets directly to the Snort sensor. It is sufficient to send packets to any of the hosts on the network monitored by Snort.

Solution

Upgrade to Snort version 1.9.1


Upgrade to Snort version 1.9.1 to correct this vulnerability. This version of snort is available at:

Disable the rpc_decode preprocessor

You can prevent exploitation of this vulnerability by commenting out the rpc_decode preprocessor in the "snort.conf" configuration file. Note that this change may affect your ability to correctly process RPC record fragments.

Block outbound packets from Snort IDS systems

You may be able limit an attacker's capabilities if the system is compromised by blocking all outbound traffic from the Snort sensor. While this workaround will not prevent exploitation of the vulnerability, it may make it more difficult for the attacker to create a useful exploit.

Package        : snort
Vulnerability  : integer overflow, buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids        : CAN-2003-0033 CAN-2003-0209
CERT advisories: VU#139129 VU#916785
Bugtraq Ids    : 7178 6963

Two vulnerabilities have been discoverd in Snort, a popular network
intrusion detection system.  Snort comes with modules and plugins that
perform a variety of functions such as protocol analysis.  The
following issues have been identified:

Heap overflow in Snort "stream4" preprocessor
(VU#139129, CAN-2003-0209, Bugtraq Id 7178)


Researchers at CORE Security Technologies have discovered a
remotely exploitable inteter overflow that results in overwriting
the heap in the "stream4" preprocessor module.  This module allows
Snort to reassemble TCP packet fragments for further analysis.  An
attacker could insert arbitrary code that would be executed as
the user running Snort, probably root.


Buffer overflow in Snort RPC preprocessor
(VU#916785, CAN-2003-0033, Bugtraq Id 6963)


Researchers at Internet Security Systems X-Force have discovered a
remotely exploitable buffer overflow in the Snort RPC preprocessor
module.  Snort incorrectly checks the lengths of what is being
normalized against the current packet size.  An attacker could
exploit this to execute arbitrary code under the privileges of the
Snort process, probably root.


For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.8.4beta1-3.1.

The old stable distribution (potato) is not affected by these problems
since it doesn't contain the problematic code.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.0-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your snort package immediately.

You are also advised to upgrade to the most recent version of Snort,
since Snort, as any intrusion detection system, is rather useless if
it is based on old and out-dated data and not kept up to date.  Such
installations would be unable to detect intrusions using modern
methods.  The current version of Snort is 2.0.0, while the version in
the stable distribution (1.8) is quite old and the one in the old
stable distribution is beyond hope.

Since Debian does not update arbitrary packages in stable releases,
even Snort is not going to see updates other than to fix security
problems, you are advised to upgrade to the most recent version from
third party sources.

The Debian maintainer for Snort provides backported up-to-date
packages for woody (stable) and potato (oldstable) for cases where you
cannot upgrade your entire system.  These packages are untested,
though and only exist for the i386 architecture:

deb     http://people.debian.org/~ssmeenk/snort-stable-i386/ ./
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~ssmeenk/snort-stable-i386/ ./

deb     http://people.debian.org/~ssmeenk/snort-oldstable-i386/ ./
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~ssmeenk/snort-oldstable-i386/ ./


Upgrade Instructions

PACKAGE : snort
SUMMARY : Multiple Vulnerabilities in Snort Preprocessors

DATE : 2003-04-28 07:07 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote

VERSIONS AFFECTED : <snort-2.0.0
FIXED VERSION : >=snort-2.0.0

CVE : CAN-2003-0209 CAN-2003-0033

- - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------

New (and correct) ID and updated CVE link.

- - From advisories:

"The Sourcefire Vulnerability Research Team has learned of an integer overflow
in the Snort stream4 preprocessor used by the Sourcefire Network Sensor
product line. The Snort stream4 preprocessor (spp_stream4) incorrectly
calculates segment size parameters during stream reassembly for certain
sequence number ranges which can lead to an integer overflow that can be
expanded to a heap overflow.

The Snort stream4 flaw may lead to a denial of service (DoS) attack or
remote command execution on a host running Snort. This attack can be launched
by crafting TCP stream packets and transmitting them over a network segment
that is being monitored by a vulnerable Snort implementation. In its
default configuration, certain versions of snort are vulnerable to this
attack, as is the default configuration of the Snort IDS."

"Remote attackers may exploit the buffer overflow condition to run
arbitrary code on a Snort sensor with the privileges of the Snort IDS
process, which typically runs as the superuser. The vulnerable
preprocessor is enabled by default. It is not necessary to establish an
actual connection to a RPC portmapper service to exploit this
vulnerability."

Snort Vulnerability Advisory [SNORT-2003-001]

Date: 2003-03-03

Affected Snort Versions:

Any version starting with version 1.8 to those before 2003-03-03 1PM/
US/Eastern including 1.9.0 and CVS HEAD (Snort 2.0beta)

Synopsis:

A buffer overflow has been found in the snort RPC normalization
routines by ISS X-Force.  This can cause snort to execute arbitrary
code embedded within sniffed network packets. This preprocessor is
enabled by default.

Snort 1.9.1 has been released to resolve this issue. For users using
CVS HEAD, a fix has been committed to the source tree.

Mitigation:

If you are in an environment that can not upgrade snort immediately,
comment out the line in your snort.conf that begins:

preprocessor rpc_decode

and replace it with

# preprocessor rpc_decode

Details:

When the rpc decoder normalizes fragmented RPC records, it incorrectly
checks the lengths of what is being normalized against the current
packet size.

The rpc decoder in Snort 1.9.1 and above contains new alert options
that can be used to help detect this attack

Option                    Default State

alert_fragments           INACTIVE
alert_large_fragments     ACTIVE
alert_incomplete          ACTIVE
alert_multiple_requests   ACTIVE


The first option will alert on any rpc fragmented record it finds.
Large fragments will alert when the reassembled fragment record will
exceed the current packet length.  The incomplete record will alert
when there is a partial record found.  The alert_multiple_requests will
alert when we find more than one RPC request per packet ( or
reassembled packet ).

Download Locations:

Sourcefire has acquired additional bandwidth and hosting to aid users
wishing to upgrade their Snort implementation.  Binaries are currently
not available, this is a source release only at this time.  As new
binaries become available they will be added to the site.

Source code: http://www.snort.org/dl/snort-1.9.1.tar.gz
GPG Signatures: http://www.snort.org/dl/snort-1.9.1.tar.gz.asc

CVS HEAD (Snort 2.0beta)  has been fixed as well.
