Date: Tue, 14 Apr 2015 11:55:15 -0400 (EDT) From: cve-assign@...re.org To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Cc: cve-assign@...re.org Subject: Re: Problems in automatic crash analysis frameworks -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 This is mostly a question for the persons who assigned CVE-2015-1318 and CVE-2015-1862. Should these CVE assignments be interpreted to mean: CVE-2015-1318 - in Apport, an unprivileged user can use a namespace-based attack because there is an execve by root after a chroot into a user-specified directory CVE-2015-1862 - in ABRT, an unprivileged user can use a namespace-based attack because there is an execve by root after a chroot into a user-specified directory with "Furthermore, Abrt suffers from numerous race conditions and symlink problems" not yet mapped to any CVE IDs? (CVE-2012-5660 is a similar but older issue.) These additional ABRT issues would seem to be, for example, independently relevant on a system where the kernel was built without namespaces support. However, the raceabrt.c attachment says "This is a race condition exploit for CVE-2015-1862." - -- CVE assignment team, MITRE CVE Numbering Authority M/S M300 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ PGP key available through http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.14 (SunOS) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJVLTexAAoJEKllVAevmvmsjqcH/2QSrlMTNp+0ovd4FKrMM3W2 p2R2WeHGkhEodzZJEFtCPit+K8hPEU7PFsX6ZIxM2mY6eQkKkbvBTSbBGzWB92Du eqaU9uFXeELo0cqQDws9AyrwoD4YA4EcA84oaEqSpzRUk1YrdV2nQWP5n5/htKV1 aZmlclshZcecd7PkwxhZh4/+5yinktXnZd72c4MW3QUCmYBnGQjuHGPzJhAKFg13 PBqyFkUkFnZSA3vhl2gPgomaAFnvBmciiEGyXngqplUrf7pHK3wWWkQoeZ/AefxO gttXwwFOMGyf6WJ54dJFYc3MpAoXgEr6yg6Ip2eXa64oYfIyFW85hh2Kbe9Vt2M= =77mv -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
