Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: LHa: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200409-13)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 08, 2004
Updated: October 20, 2006
Bug(s): #62618
ID: 200409-13

Synopsis

Several buffer overflows and a shell metacharacter command execution vulnerability have been found in LHa. These vulnerabilities can be used to execute arbitrary code.

Background

LHa is a console-based program for packing and unpacking LHarc archives.

Affected Packages

Package: app-arch/lha
Vulnerable: > 114i114i <= 114i-r3
Unaffected: >= 114i-r4 < 114i115
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

The command line argument as well as the archive parsing code of LHa lack sufficient bounds checking. Furthermore, a shell meta character command execution vulnerability exists in LHa, since it does no proper filtering on directory names.

Impact

Using a specially crafted command line argument or archive, an attacker can cause a buffer overflow and could possibly run arbitrary code. The shell meta character command execution could lead to the execution of arbitrary commands by an attacker using directories containing shell meta characters in their names.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All LHa users should upgrade to the latest stable version:
Code:
# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=app-arch/lha-114i-r4"
# emerge ">=app-arch/lha-114i-r4"
