Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Paros: Default administrator password (GLSA 200601-15)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: January 29, 2006
Bug(s): #120352
ID: 200601-15

Synopsis

Paros's database component is installed without a password, allowing execution of arbitrary system commands.

Background

Paros is an intercepting proxy between a web server and a client meant to be used for security assessments. It allows the user to watch and modify the HTTP(S) traffic.

Affected Packages

Package: net-proxy/paros
Vulnerable: <= 3.2.5
Unaffected: > 3.2.5
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Andrew Christensen discovered that in older versions of Paros the database component HSQLDB is installed with an empty password for the database administrator "sa".

Impact

Since the database listens globally by default, an attacker can connect and issue arbitrary commands, including execution of binaries installed on the host.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Paros users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --snyc
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-proxy/paros-3.2.8"


References

CVE-2005-3280
