Product:
Solaris 10 Operating System

Date of Resolved Release: 23-Sep-2009

SA Document Body
Security Vulnerabilities in Solaris Trusted Extensions Common Desktop 
Environment (CDE) ...

1. Impact

Security Vulnerabilities in Solaris Trusted Extensions Common Desktop
Environment (CDE)may allow an unprivileged local user to easily execute 
arbitrary commands with root privileges or to bypass Mandatory Access 
Control (MAC) policy.

2. Contributing Factors

These issues can occur in the following releases:
SPARC Platform
  * Solaris 10 without patch 126365-15 and 139620-01

x86 Platform
  * Solaris 10 without patch 126366-15 and 139621-01

Note 1: Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 and OpenSolaris are not impacted by
these issues. Releases prior to Solaris 10 11/06 do not include
Solaris Trusted Extensions and so are not vulnerable to these issues.
Note 2: These issues only impact Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris systems
which have installed and configured Solaris Trusted Extensions. To
determine if a system is configured with Trusted Extensions, the
following command can be run in the global zone:
 $ svcs /system/labeld
 STATE          STIME      FMRI
 online  10:02:34   svc:/system/labeld:default

If the state is disabled or if "/system/labeld" service is not listed,
then the system is not configured to use Trusted Extensions.

3. Symptoms

There are no predictable symptoms that would indicate the described
issues have been exploited.

4. Relief/Workaround

There is no workaround for these issues. Please see Resolution below.

5. Resolution

These issues are resolved in the following releases:
SPARC Platform
  * Solaris 10 with patch patch 126365-15 and 139620-01 or later

x86 Platform
  * Solaris 10 with patch patch 126366-15 and 139621-01 or later
