SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1016743
SecurityTracker URL:
CVE Reference:   CVE-2006-4315   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Aug 24 2006
Original Entry Date:  Aug 23 2006
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via local system, Root access via local system, User access via local system
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): Various Windows-based versions of the Client, Server, Connector, and Manager.
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in the SSH Tectia products on Windows-based systems. A local user can gain elevated privileges.

A local user with privileges to create files in the system root directory or the 'Program Files' directory or subdirectories can create a specially named executable in one of those directories and then cause the executable to be started with root privileges or the privileges of another user. This is due to a pathname parsing flaw in the Windows-based versions of the SSH Tectia products.

The following Windows-based versions are affected:

* SSH Tectia Client/Server/Connector 5.0.0 and 5.0.1
* SSH Tectia Client/Server version 4.4.5 (and older)
* SSH Tectia Client version 4.3.8K (and older Korean versions)
* SSH Tectia Client version 4.3.1J (and older Japanese versions)
* SSH Tectia Manager version 2.1.2 (and older versions) Management Agent

SSH credits Mr. Charles Morris with reporting this vulnerability.

Impact:   A local user with certain file creation privileges can cause arbitrary code to be executed with the privileges of a target user, potentially including root privileges.
Solution:   The vendor has issued the following fixes, available at:

* SSH Tectia Server/Client 4.4.6
* SSH Tectia Server/Client/Connector 5.0.2
* SSH Tectia Server/Client/Connector 5.1.0
* SSH Tectia Client 4.3.9K
* SSH Tectia Client 4.3.2J
* SSH Tectia Manager 2.1.3
* SSH Tectia Manager 2.2.0
