Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: qmailAdmin: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200611-15)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 21, 2006
Bug(s): #153896
ID: 200611-15

Synopsis

qmailAdmin is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that could lead to the remote execution of arbitrary code.

Background

qmailAdmin is a free software package that provides a web interface for managing a qmail system with virtual domains.

Affected Packages

Package: net-mail/qmailadmin
Vulnerable: < 1.2.10
Unaffected: >= 1.2.10
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

qmailAdmin fails to properly handle the "PATH_INFO" variable in qmailadmin.c. The PATH_INFO is a standard CGI environment variable filled with user supplied data.

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending qmailAdmin a maliciously crafted URL that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running qmailAdmin.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All qmailAdmin users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-mail/qmailadmin-1.2.10"


References

CVE-2006-1141
