			SCO Security Advisory

Subject:		UnixWare 7.1.3 Open UNIX 8.0.0 UnixWare 7.1.1 : Insecure handling of procfs descriptors in UnixWare can lead to local privilege escalation.
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2003-SCO.32
Issue date: 		2003 November 11
Cross reference: 	sr886899 fz528474 erg712482
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

	"/proc/$PID/as" Contains the address space image of process
	$PID. It can be opened and accessed like any other file and
	be used to manipulate the process. The process owner also
	owns the "as" file whose file permission is 600. 

	For obvious reasons this doesn't apply to processes spawned 
	from setuid and setgid binaries. This protection can be bypassed by
	first obtaining a descriptor to a process you own then let
	that process execve() a setuid binary. execve() will replace
	the process image, honor the setuid bit and the descriptor
	will remain open. 

	The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
	has assigned the name CAN-2003-0937 to this issue.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Binaries
	----------------------------------------------------------------------
	UnixWare 7.1.3 			/etc/conf/pack.d/procfs/Driver_atup.o
				        /etc/conf/pack.d/procfs/Driver_mp.o

	Open UNIX 8.0.0 		/etc/conf/pack.d/procfs/Driver_atup.o
	(aka UnixWare 7.1.2)		/etc/conf/pack.d/procfs/Driver_mp.o

	UnixWare 7.1.1 			/etc/conf/pack.d/procfs/Driver_atup.o
					/etc/conf/pack.d/procfs/Driver_mp.o
					
3. Solution

	The proper solution is to install the latest packages.


4. UnixWare 7.1.3

	4.1 Location of Fixed Binaries

	ftp://ftp.sco.com/pub/updates/UnixWare/CSSA-2003-SCO.32

	erg712482c should only be installed on: UnixWare 7.1.3

	4.2 Verification

	MD5 (erg712482c.Z) = 50c98884a6dcb14ccf57d71aad135045

	md5 is available for download from
		ftp://ftp.sco.com/pub/security/tools

	4.3 Installing Fixed Binaries

	Upgrade the affected binaries with the following sequence:

	1. Download the erg712482c.Z file to the /tmp directory on your machine.

	2. As root, uncompress the file and add the package to your system
	using these commands:

        $ su
        Password: <type your root password>
        # uncompress /tmp/erg712482c.Z
        # pkgadd -d /tmp/erg712482c
        # rm /tmp/erg712482c

	Alternatively, this SLS package may be installed in quiet mode,
	that is, without displaying the release notes and asking for
	confirmation.  To do this, use these commands:

        $ su
        Password: <type your root password>
        # uncompress /tmp/erg712482c.Z
        # pkgadd -qd /tmp/erg712482c all
        # rm /tmp/erg712482c

	3. Reboot the system after installing this package.


	Removal Instructions
	--------------------

	1. As root, remove the package using these commands:
