Bulletin (SB04-259)

Summary of Security Items from September 8 through September 14, 2004

Original release date: September 14, 2004

The US-CERT Cyber Security 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. The NVD is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) / United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). For modified or updated entries, please visit the NVD, which contains historical vulnerability information.

The vulnerabilities are based on the 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 will be labeled High severity if they have a CVSS base score of 7.0 - 10.0

  • Medium - Vulnerabilities will be labeled Medium severity if they have a CVSS base score of 4.0 - 6.9

  • Low - Vulnerabilities will be labeled Low severity if they have a CVSS base score of 0.0 - 3.9

Entries may include additional information provided by organizations and efforts sponsored by US-CERT. 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 bulletins is compiled from external, open source reports and is not a direct result of US-CERT analysis.

This bulletin provides a summary of new or updated vulnerabilities, exploits, trends, viruses, and trojans identified between September 7 and September 14, 2004. Updates to items appearing 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.



Bugs, Holes, & Patches 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:

  • 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.

Adobe Systems

Adobe Acrobat 5.0.5 and prior, possibly 6.0.2

A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in Acrobat/Acrobat Reader due to a boundary error within the "pdf.ocx" ActiveX component supplied with Adobe Acrobat Reader. A remote malicious user can exploit this vulnerability via a malicious website using a specially crafted URL to potentially execute arbitrary code. Successful exploitation allows remote malicious users to utilize the arbitrary word overwrite to redirect the flow of control and eventually take control of the affected system. Code execution will occur under the context of the user that instantiated the vulnerable version of Adobe Acrobat.

Patch available at:
http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/thankyou.jsp?ftpID=2589&fileID=2433

Vendor asserts this vulnerability is fixed in version 6.0.2. However, proof of concept code exists that causes a Denial of Service.

Trends
  • The number of inappropriate or offensive images sent as attachments in the past six months was dramatically lower than the same period last year, according to MessageLabs, a U.K.-based managed message security service. Also in August, MessageLabs spotted a decline in both spam and virus-laden e-mails. During August, MessageLabs tagged 84.2 percent of all messages it scanned as spam, down from July's 94.6 percent. Virus-contaminated mail also fell in August to 6.9 percent of the scanned messages; during July, MessageLabs found malicious code in 7.3 percent of the mail it processed. Possible explanations for the declines include a growing enforcement of corporate governance requirements, the cyclical nature of virus outbreaks with summer months tending to be calm, and the United States' Operation Web Snare conducted in August during which more than 150 people were arrested for a variety of online criminal activities, including spamming. (Source: InternetWeek.com, September 7, 2004)
  • Phishing is reaching epidemic proportions. The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG), a vendor consortium trying to address the problem, received reports of more than 1,100 unique phishing campaigns in April, a 178 percent increase from the previous month and a 4,000 percent increase from November 2003. A Gartner Group study, also completed in April, estimated that more than 57 million Americans, representing 40 percent of all online users, received a phishing e-mail, and 76 percent said the attack had taken place in the last six months.

Viruses/Trojans

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 during the latest three months), and approximate date first found.

Top Ten Table updated September 10, 2004

Viruses or Trojans Considered to be a High Level of Threat

  • Amus: While not a severe threat, the Amus worm is one of the more unique worms to have surfaced. The worm spreads via Outlook to e-mails found in the Windows Address Book, and if the attachment is executed by the user, the worm generates a short message in a robotic female voice, using Windows XP's built-in speech capabilities. The worm may also attempt to delete all INI or DLL files from the Windows folder.
  • Sdbot: Anti-virus companies are warning of a new variant of the Sdbot mass-mailing worm that installs a network sniffer in order to grab unencrypted passwords, apparently the first worm to do so. The worm creates a bot that uses functions of NetBEUI (NetBios Extended User Interface), a protocol used by network operating systems, to find usernames and passwords, and uses these to create copies of itself on shared folders.

The following table provides, in alphabetical order, a list of new viruses, variations of previously encountered viruses, and Trojans that have been discovered during the period covered by this bulletin. This information has been compiled from the following anti-virus vendors: Sophos, Trend Micro, Symantec, McAfee, Network Associates, Central Command, F-Secure, Kaspersky Labs, MessageLabs, Panda Software, Computer Associates, and The WildList Organization International. Users should keep anti-virus software up to date and should contact their anti-virus vendors to obtain specific information on the Trojans and Trojan variants that anti-virus software detects.

NOTE: At times, viruses and Trojans may contain names or content that may be considered offensive.

Last updated

This bulletin provides a summary of new or updated vulnerabilities, exploits, trends, viruses, and trojans identified between September 7 and September 14, 2004. Updates to items appearing 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.



Bugs, Holes, & Patches 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:

  • 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.

Adobe Systems

Adobe Acrobat 5.0.5 and prior, possibly 6.0.2

A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in Acrobat/Acrobat Reader due to a boundary error within the "pdf.ocx" ActiveX component supplied with Adobe Acrobat Reader. A remote malicious user can exploit this vulnerability via a malicious website using a specially crafted URL to potentially execute arbitrary code. Successful exploitation allows remote malicious users to utilize the arbitrary word overwrite to redirect the flow of control and eventually take control of the affected system. Code execution will occur under the context of the user that instantiated the vulnerable version of Adobe Acrobat.

Patch available at:
http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/thankyou.jsp?ftpID=2589&fileID=2433

Vendor asserts this vulnerability is fixed in version 6.0.2. However, proof of concept code exists that causes a Denial of Service.

Adobe Systems

Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.05 and 5.06

An input validation and boundary error vulnerability exists in the uudecoding feature of Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be exploited by a malicious user to compromise a user's system. The input validation error allows the injection of arbitrary shell commands. The boundary vulnerability can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a malicious PDF document with an overly long filename. Successful exploitation may allow execution of arbitrary code, but requires that a user is tricked into opening a malicious document.

A vulnerability exists in rsync when running in daemon mode with chroot disabled. A remote user may be able read or write files on the target system that are located outside of the module's path. A remote user can supply a specially crafted path to cause the path cleaning function to generate an absolute filename instead of a relative one. The flaw resides in the sanitize_path() function.

Trends
  • The number of inappropriate or offensive images sent as attachments in the past six months was dramatically lower than the same period last year, according to MessageLabs, a U.K.-based managed message security service. Also in August, MessageLabs spotted a decline in both spam and virus-laden e-mails. During August, MessageLabs tagged 84.2 percent of all messages it scanned as spam, down from July's 94.6 percent. Virus-contaminated mail also fell in August to 6.9 percent of the scanned messages; during July, MessageLabs found malicious code in 7.3 percent of the mail it processed. Possible explanations for the declines include a growing enforcement of corporate governance requirements, the cyclical nature of virus outbreaks with summer months tending to be calm, and the United States' Operation Web Snare conducted in August during which more than 150 people were arrested for a variety of online criminal activities, including spamming. (Source: InternetWeek.com, September 7, 2004)
  • Phishing is reaching epidemic proportions. The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG), a vendor consortium trying to address the problem, received reports of more than 1,100 unique phishing campaigns in April, a 178 percent increase from the previous month and a 4,000 percent increase from November 2003. A Gartner Group study, also completed in April, estimated that more than 57 million Americans, representing 40 percent of all online users, received a phishing e-mail, and 76 percent said the attack had taken place in the last six months.

Viruses/Trojans

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 during the latest three months), and approximate date first found.

Top Ten Table updated September 10, 2004

Viruses or Trojans Considered to be a High Level of Threat

  • Amus: While not a severe threat, the Amus worm is one of the more unique worms to have surfaced. The worm spreads via Outlook to e-mails found in the Windows Address Book, and if the attachment is executed by the user, the worm generates a short message in a robotic female voice, using Windows XP's built-in speech capabilities. The worm may also attempt to delete all INI or DLL files from the Windows folder.
  • Sdbot: Anti-virus companies are warning of a new variant of the Sdbot mass-mailing worm that installs a network sniffer in order to grab unencrypted passwords, apparently the first worm to do so. The worm creates a bot that uses functions of NetBEUI (NetBios Extended User Interface), a protocol used by network operating systems, to find usernames and passwords, and uses these to create copies of itself on shared folders.

The following table provides, in alphabetical order, a list of new viruses, variations of previously encountered viruses, and Trojans that have been discovered during the period covered by this bulletin. This information has been compiled from the following anti-virus vendors: Sophos, Trend Micro, Symantec, McAfee, Network Associates, Central Command, F-Secure, Kaspersky Labs, MessageLabs, Panda Software, Computer Associates, and The WildList Organization International. Users should keep anti-virus software up to date and should contact their anti-virus vendors to obtain specific information on the Trojans and Trojan variants that anti-virus software detects.

NOTE: At times, viruses and Trojans may contain names or content that may be considered offensive.
