Abstract
========

The telnet client program in NetBSD, supporting MIT Kerberos 5
authentication, contains several buffer overflows that can be triggered
when connecting to a malicious telnet server. When exploited, these
overflows can lead to remote code execution.


Technical Details
=================

The slc_add_reply() and env_opt_add() functions in telnet.c perform
inadequate length checking. slc_add_reply() may overflow a fixed-size
data segment or BSS buffer when receiving a maliciously crafted telnet
LINEMODE suboption string. env_opt_add() may overflow a heap buffer when
receiving a maliciously crafted telnet NEW-ENVIRON suboption string.

Both overflows may lead to arbitrary code execution.

CVE: CAN-2005-0468 and CAN-2005-0469


Solutions and Workarounds
=========================

There is no workaround to this problem.

It is recommended that all NetBSD users of affected versions upgrade
their telnet binaries to a non-vulnerable version.

The following instructions describe how to upgrade your telnet
binaries by updating your source tree and rebuilding and
installing a new version of telnet.


* NetBSD-current:

	Systems running NetBSD-current dated from before 2005-03-29
	should be upgraded to NetBSD-current dated 2005-04-01 or later.

	The following files need to be updated from the netbsd-current CVS
	branch (aka HEAD):
		usr.bin/telnet/telnet.c

	To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install telnet:
		# cd src
		# cvs update -d -P usr.bin/telnet/telnet.c
		# cd usr.bin/telnet

		# make USETOOLS=no cleandir dependall
		# make USETOOLS=no install


* NetBSD 2.0:

	The binary distribution of NetBSD 2.0 is vulnerable.

	NetBSD 2.1 includes the fix.

	Systems running NetBSD 2.0 sources dated from before
	2005-04-08 should be upgraded from NetBSD 2.0 sources dated
	2005-04-09 or later.

	The following files need to be updated from the
	netbsd-2-0 CVS branch:
		usr.bin/telnet/telnet.c

	To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install telnet:

		# cd src
		# cvs update -d -P -r netbsd-2-0 usr.bin/telnet/telnet.c
		# cd usr.bin/telnet

		# make USETOOLS=no cleandir dependall
		# make USETOOLS=no install


* NetBSD 1.6, 1.6.1, 1.6.2:

	The binary distributions of NetBSD 1.6, 1.6.1, and 1.6.2 are vulnerable.

	Systems running NetBSD 1.6 sources dated from before
	2005-04-08 should be upgraded from NetBSD 1.6 sources dated
	2005-04-09 or later.

	NetBSD 1.6.3 will include the fix.

	The following files need to be updated from the
	netbsd-1-6 CVS branch:
		usr.bin/telnet/telnet.c

	To update from CVS, re-build, and re-install telnet:

		# cd src
		# cvs update -d -P -r netbsd-1-6 usr.bin/telnet/telnet.c
		# cd usr.bin/telnet

		# make USETOOLS=no cleandir dependall
		# make USETOOLS=no install
