(Red Hat Issues Fix) ntp Multiple Flaws Let Remote Users Spoof Messages, Obtain Potentially Sensitive Information, and Deny Service
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1035991
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1035991
CVE Reference:   CVE-2015-7979   (Links to External Site)
Date:  May 31 2016
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 4.2.8p6
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in ntp. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. A remote user can impersonate ntp peers.

A remote user can conduct a replay attack against authenticated broadcast mode packets [CVE-2015-7973].

A remote authenticated user can exploit a key check flaw to impersonate a peer [CVE-2015-7974].

A remote user can send specially crafted data to trigger a buffer overflow in the nextvar() function in ntpq and cause the target service to crash [CVE-2015-7975].

A remote authenticated user can send an ntpq saveconfig command with specially crafted filename characters to cause unintended results [CVE-2015-7976].

A remote user can send a specially crafted ntpdc reslist command to trigger a null pointer dereference and cause the target service to crash [CVE-2015-7977].

A remote user can send a specially crafted reslist command to consume all available stack memory [CVE-2015-7978].

A remote user can send a specially crafted broadcast mode packet to cause the target broadcast client to tear down the association with the broadcast server [CVE-2015-7979].

A remote server can send a specially crafted packet with an origin timestamp of zero to bypass the timestamp validation check in certain cases [CVE-2015-8138].

A remote user can send specially crafted data to trigger an infinite loop in ntpq [CVE-2015-8158].

A remote user can trigger an origin leak in ntpq and ntpdc to obtain potentially sensitive information [CVE-2015-8139].

A remote user on the local network may be able to conduct replay attacks against ntpq [CVE-2015-8140].

Cisco ASIG reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system.

A remote authenticated user can impersonate an ntp peer.

Solution:   Red Hat has issued a fix for CVE-2015-7979.

3. Description:

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize a computer's time
with another referenced time source. These packages include the ntpd
service which continuously adjusts system time and utilities used to query
and configure the ntpd service.

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that when NTP was configured in broadcast mode, a remote
attacker could broadcast packets with bad authentication to all clients.
The clients, upon receiving the malformed packets, would break the
association with the broadcast server, causing them to become out of sync
over a longer period of time. (CVE-2015-7979)

* A denial of service flaw was found in the way NTP handled preemptable
client associations. A remote attacker could send several crypto NAK
packets to a victim client, each with a spoofed source address of an
existing associated peer, preventing that client from synchronizing its
time. (CVE-2016-1547)

* It was found that an ntpd client could be forced to change from basic
client/server mode to the interleaved symmetric mode. A remote attacker
could use a spoofed packet that, when processed by an ntpd client, would
cause that client to reject all future legitimate server responses,
effectively disabling time synchronization on that client. (CVE-2016-1548)

* A flaw was found in the way NTP's libntp performed message
authentication. An attacker able to observe the timing of the comparison
function used in packet authentication could potentially use this flaw to
recover the message digest. (CVE-2016-1550)

* An out-of-bounds access flaw was found in the way ntpd processed certain
packets. An authenticated attacker could use a crafted packet to create a
peer association with hmode of 7 and larger, which could potentially
(although highly unlikely) cause ntpd to crash. (CVE-2016-2518)

The CVE-2016-1548 issue was discovered by Miroslav Lichvar (Red Hat).
