Summary of Security Items from June 15 through June 21, 2005

Released
Jun 22, 2005
Document ID
SB05-173

The CISA Vulnerability Bulletin provides a summary of new vulnerabilities that have been recorded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) National Vulnerability Database (NVD) in the past week. NVD is sponsored by CISA. In some cases, the vulnerabilities in the bulletin may not yet have assigned CVSS scores. Please visit NVD for updated vulnerability entries, which include CVSS scores once they are available.

Vulnerabilities are based on the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) vulnerability naming standard and are organized according to severity, determined by the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) standard. The division of high, medium, and low severities correspond to the following scores:

  • High: vulnerabilities with a CVSS base score of 7.0–10.0
  • Medium: vulnerabilities with a CVSS base score of 4.0–6.9
  • Low: vulnerabilities with a CVSS base score of 0.0–3.9

Entries may include additional information provided by organizations and efforts sponsored by CISA. This information may include identifying information, values, definitions, and related links. Patch information is provided when available. Please note that some of the information in the bulletin is compiled from external, open-source reports and is not a direct result of CISA analysis. 


Information
in the US-CERT Cyber Security Bulletin is a compilation and includes information
published by outside sources, so the information should not be considered the
result of US-CERT analysis. Software vulnerabilities are categorized in the
appropriate section reflecting the operating system on which the vulnerability
was reported; however, this does not mean that the vulnerability only affects
the operating system reported since this information is obtained from
open-source information.


This bulletin
provides a summary of new or updated vulnerabilities, exploits, trends, viruses,
and trojans. Updates to vulnerabilities that
appeared
in previous bulletins are listed in bold
text.
The text in the Risk column appears in red for vulnerabilities
ranking High. The risks levels applied to
vulnerabilities in the Cyber Security Bulletin are based on how the "system" may
be impacted. The Recent Exploit/Technique table contains a "Workaround or Patch
Available" column that indicates whether a workaround or patch has been
published for the vulnerability which the script exploits.

class=style46>The table below
summarizes vulnerabilities that have been identified, even if they are not being
exploited. Complete details about patches or workarounds are available from the
source of the information or from the URL provided in the section. CVE numbers
are listed where applicable. Vulnerabilities that affect both
Windows and Unix Operating Systems are included in the Multiple
Operating Systems
section.

Note: All the information included in the following tables
has been discussed in newsgroups and on web sites.


The Risk levels
defined below are based on how the system may be impacted:


Note: Even though
a vulnerability may allow several malicious acts to be performed, only the
highest level risk will be defined in the Risk column.



  • High - A
    high-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will allow an intruder to
    immediately gain privileged access (e.g., sysadmin or root) to the system or
    allow an intruder to execute code or alter arbitrary system files. An example
    of a high-risk vulnerability is one that allows an unauthorized user to send a
    sequence of instructions to a machine and the machine responds with a command
    prompt with administrator privileges.

  • Medium - A
    medium-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will allow an intruder
    immediate access to a system with less than privileged access. Such
    vulnerability will allow the intruder the opportunity to continue the attempt
    to gain privileged access. An example of medium-risk vulnerability is a server
    configuration error that allows an intruder to capture the password
    file.

  • Low - A
    low-risk vulnerability is defined as one that will provide information to an
    intruder that could lead to further compromise attempts or a Denial of Service
    (DoS) attack. It should be noted that while the DoS attack is deemed low from
    a threat potential, the frequency of this type of attack is very high. DoS
    attacks against mission-critical nodes are not included in this rating and any
    attack of this nature should instead be considered to be a "High"
    threat.

Two vulnerabilities exist in GNU a2ps, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to perform certain actions on a vulnerable system with escalated privileges. The vulnerabilities are caused due to the fixps.in and psmandup.in scripts creating temporary files insecurely. This can be exploited via symlink attacks to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running a vulnerable script.

  • Browser Windows Without Indications of Their Origins may be Used in Phishing Attempts: Microsoft has investigated a public report of a phishing method that affects Web browsers in general, including Internet Explorer.
    The report describes the scenario of multiple, overlapping browser windows, some of which contain no indications of their origin. An attacker could arrange windows in such a way as to trick users into thinking that an unidentified dialog or pop-up window is trustworthy when it is in fact fraudulent. Source: Microsoft Security Advisory (902333) Browser Windows Without Indications of Their Origins may be Used in Phishing Attempts.

  • Spyware Danger Meets Rootkit Stealth: According to spyware experts, that the makers of one common spyware program are borrowing techniques from another type of malicious program, known as "rootkits," to help evade detection on systems they infect. Recent versions of the Cool Web Search spyware have rootkit-like features that allow the spyware authors to hide their program files on Windows systems.

  • Pharming, phishing remain major online fraud threats, VeriSign says: According to VeriSign Inc.'s most recent Internet security intelligence briefing, pharming is emerging as a major method of online fraud. The briefing is based on transactions settled by VeriSign during the first quarter. Pharming tricks a user's computer into connecting to a fake web site even if the correct domain name information is entered into the browser. The technique exploits vulnerabilities in domain name service software to distribute fake address information, VeriSign says. Source: http://internetretailer.com/dailyNews.asp?id=15253.

  • Banks Not Doing Enough To Stop ID Theft: According to a report by Javelin Strategy & Research, most financial institutions that provide credit cards are doing an inadequate job of attacking the problem, focusing on resolution rather than prevention and detection. The report ranked leading card-issuing banks based on three criteria: prevention, detection, and resolution. Issuers could score a maximum of 100 points: 40 points each for prevention and detection, and 20 points for resolution. The rankings were based on a survey of 39 banks in which researchers posing as customers asked about the bank's ID theft policies. Prevention and detection were weighted more heavily than resolution because of their greater potential benefits and cost savings.

  • Browser-based attacks increase as viruses dip: The Computing Technology Industry Association, or CompTIA, released its third annual report on IT security and the work force. The survey of nearly 500 organizations, found that 56.6 percent had been the victim of a browser-based attack, up from 36.8 percent a year ago and a quarter two years ago. Browser-based attacks often take advantage of security flaws in Web browsers and other components of the user's PC such as the operating system. The attackers' objective can be to sabotage a computer or steal private data, and the attacks can be launched when a person visits a Web page that appears harmless but contains malicious code.

  • Identity thieves go big business: Authorities state that they've noted an increase in more sophisticated scams in which identity thieves steal the names and larger credit lines of businesses and nonprofit groups.
    Called "corporate identity theft,' the crime is growing rapidly, according to Whittier-area state Assemblyman Ron Calderon, D-Montebello, who has introduced a bill to help fight the problem.
    Corporate identity thieves can rip off companies and nonprofit organizations for thousands of dollars at a time. The thieves will typically gain access to a firm's credit card information and use it to pile up hefty bills, officials sa.

  • Trojan Horse E-Mails Suggest Trend Toward Targeted Attacks: The UK's National Infrastructure Security Co-Ordination Center released a report disclosing that more than 300 government departments and businesses were targeted by a continuing series of e-mail attacks designed to covertly gather sensitive and economically valuable information. The report highlights an emerging trend away from mass-mailing worms and viruses to far more targeted ones. Source: http://www.snpx.com/cgi-bin/news55.cgi?target=99127134?-2622.

Top Ten Virus Threats


A list of high threat
viruses, as reported to various anti-virus vendors and virus incident reporting
organizations, has been ranked and categorized in the table below. For the
purposes of collecting and collating data, infections involving multiple systems
at a single location are considered a single infection. It is therefore possible
that a virus has infected hundreds of machines but has only been counted once.
With the number of viruses that appear each month, it is possible that a new
virus will become widely distributed before the next edition of this
publication. To limit the possibility of infection, readers are reminded to
update their anti-virus packages as soon as updates become available. The table
lists the viruses by ranking (number of sites affected), common virus name, type
of virus code (i.e., boot, file, macro, multi-partite, script), trends (based on
number of infections reported since last week), and approximate date first
found.
