-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA256 =========================================================================== AUSCERT External Security Bulletin Redistribution ESB-2019.2472 iconv buffer overflow 5 July 2019 =========================================================================== AusCERT Security Bulletin Summary --------------------------------- Product: iconv Publisher: FreeBSD Operating System: FreeBSD UNIX variants (UNIX, Linux, OSX) Impact/Access: Execute Arbitrary Code/Commands -- Remote/Unauthenticated Denial of Service -- Remote/Unauthenticated Resolution: Patch/Upgrade CVE Names: CVE-2019-5600 Original Bulletin: https://security.freebsd.org/advisories/FreeBSD-SA-19:09.iconv.asc Comment: This advisory references vulnerabilities in products which run on platforms other than FreeBSD. It is recommended that administrators running iconv check for an updated version of the software for their operating system. - --------------------------BEGIN INCLUDED TEXT-------------------- - -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA512 ============================================================================= FreeBSD-SA-19:09.iconv Security Advisory The FreeBSD Project Topic: iconv buffer overflow Category: core Module: libc Announced: 2019-07-02 Credits: Andrea Venturoli <email@example.com>, NetFence Affects: All supported versions of FreeBSD. Corrected: 2019-07-03 00:01:38 UTC (stable/12, 12.0-STABLE) 2019-07-03 00:00:39 UTC (releng/12.0, 12.0-RELEASE-p7) 2019-07-03 00:03:14 UTC (stable/11, 11.3-PRERELEASE) 2019-07-03 00:00:39 UTC (releng/11.3, 11.3-RC3-p1) 2019-07-03 00:00:39 UTC (releng/11.2, 11.2-RELEASE-p11) CVE Name: CVE-2019-5600 For general information regarding FreeBSD Security Advisories, including descriptions of the fields above, security branches, and the following sections, please visit <URL:https://security.FreeBSD.org/>. I. Background The iconv(3) API converts text data from one character encoding to another and is available as part of the standard C library (libc). II. Problem Description With certain inputs, iconv may write beyond the end of the output buffer. III. Impact Depending on the way in which iconv is used, an attacker may be able to create a denial of service, provoke incorrect program behavior, or induce a remote code execution. iconv is a libc library function and the nature of possible attacks will depend on the way in which iconv is used by applications or daemons. IV. Workaround No workaround is available. Stack canaries (-fstack-protector), which are enabled by default, provide a degreee of defense against code injection but not against denial of service. V. Solution Upgrade your vulnerable system to a supported FreeBSD stable or release / security branch (releng) dated after the correction date. Restart any potentially affected daemons. Perform one of the following: 1) To update your vulnerable system via a binary patch: Systems running a RELEASE version of FreeBSD on the i386 or amd64 platforms can be updated via the freebsd-update(8) utility: # freebsd-update fetch # freebsd-update install 2) To update your vulnerable system via a source code patch: The following patches have been verified to apply to the applicable FreeBSD release branches. a) Download the relevant patch from the location below, and verify the detached PGP signature using your PGP utility. # fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-19:09/iconv.patch # fetch https://security.FreeBSD.org/patches/SA-19:09/iconv.patch.asc # gpg --verify iconv.patch.asc b) Apply the patch. Execute the following commands as root: # cd /usr/src # patch < /path/to/patch c) Recompile the operating system using buildworld and installworld as described in <URL:https://www.FreeBSD.org/handbook/makeworld.html>. Restart all daemons that use the library, or reboot the system. VI. Correction details The following list contains the correction revision numbers for each affected branch. Branch/path Revision - - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- stable/12/ r349622 releng/12.0/ r349621 stable/11/ r349624 releng/11.3/ r349621 releng/11.2/ r349621 - - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- To see which files were modified by a particular revision, run the following command, replacing NNNNNN with the revision number, on a machine with Subversion installed: # svn diff -cNNNNNN --summarize svn://svn.freebsd.org/base Or visit the following URL, replacing NNNNNN with the revision number: <URL:https://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=NNNNNN> VII.
