(Oracle Issues Fix for Oracle Linux) OpenSSH X11 Forwarding Flaw Lets Users Bypass Trust Restrictions
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1035348
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1035348
CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-1908   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Mar 22 2016
Impact:   Modification of system information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 7.1p2
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in OpenSSH. A remote authenticated user can bypass security restrictions in certain cases.

A remote authenticated X application can trigger a flaw in the handling of errors when generating authentication cookies for untrusted X11 forwarding to establish a trusted connection to the target local X server when only untrusted X11 forwarding was requested. As a result, the remote X client may gain privileged access to the target local X server.

Thomas Hoger reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote authenticated X client can cause X11 forwarding trust to fallback from untrusted to trusted to gain privileged access to the target local X server.
Solution:   Oracle has issued a fix.
