(Red Hat Issues Fix) Ruby 64-bit BigDecimal Integer Truncation Flaw Lets Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1025723
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1025723
CVE Reference:   CVE-2011-0188   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jun 28 2011
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 1.9.2
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Ruby. A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system.

A remote user can send specially crafted data to a Ruby script that uses untrusted input to create a BigDecimal object to potentially trigger an integer truncation flaw and execute arbitrary code.

64-bit processes are affected.

Drew Yao of Apple Product Security reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system.
Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix.

The Red Hat advisory is available at:

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated ruby packages that fix multiple security issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

Ruby is an extensible, interpreted, object-oriented, scripting language. It
has features to process text files and to do system management tasks.

A flaw was found in the way large amounts of memory were allocated on
64-bit systems when using the BigDecimal class. A context-dependent
attacker could use this flaw to cause memory corruption, causing a Ruby
application that uses the BigDecimal class to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code. This issue did not affect 32-bit systems. (CVE-2011-0188)

It was found that WEBrick (the Ruby HTTP server toolkit) did not filter
terminal escape sequences from its log files. A remote attacker could use
specially-crafted HTTP requests to inject terminal escape sequences into
the WEBrick log files. If a victim viewed the log files with a terminal
emulator, it could result in control characters being executed with the
privileges of that user. (CVE-2009-4492)

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way WEBrick displayed
error pages. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform a cross-site
scripting attack against victims by tricking them into visiting a
specially-crafted URL. (CVE-2010-0541)

A flaw was found in the method for translating an exception message into a
string in the Exception class. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
bypass safe level 4 restrictions, allowing untrusted (tainted) code to
modify arbitrary, trusted (untainted) strings, which safe level 4
restrictions would otherwise prevent. (CVE-2011-1005)

Red Hat would like to thank Drew Yao of Apple Product Security for
reporting the CVE-2011-0188 and CVE-2010-0541 issues.

All Ruby users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
