(Red Hat Issues Fix) GnuTLS Lets Remote Users Execute Arbitrary Code on the Target System
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1039037
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1039037
CVE Reference:   CVE-2017-5334, CVE-2017-5335, CVE-2017-5336, CVE-2017-5337   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Aug 1 2017
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in GnuTLS. A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system.

A remote user can send a specially crafted X.509 containing a Proxy Certificate Information extension to trigger a double-free memory error in gnutls_x509_ext_import_proxy() and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2017-5334].

A remote user can send a specially crafted OpenPGP certificate to trigger a heap or stack overflow and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2017-5335, CVE-2017-5336, CVE-2017-5337].

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

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

1. Summary:

An update for gnutls is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client Optional (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode Optional (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7) - aarch64, ppc64, ppc64le, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 7) - x86_64

3. Description:

The gnutls packages provide the GNU Transport Layer Security (GnuTLS)
library, which implements cryptographic algorithms and protocols such as
SSL, TLS, and DTLS.

The following packages have been upgraded to a later upstream version:
gnutls (3.3.26). (BZ#1378373)

Security Fix(es):

* A double-free flaw was found in the way GnuTLS parsed certain X.509
certificates with Proxy Certificate Information extension. An attacker
could create a specially-crafted certificate which, when processed by an
application compiled against GnuTLS, could cause that application to crash.
(CVE-2017-5334)

* Multiple flaws were found in the way gnutls processed OpenPGP
certificates. An attacker could create specially crafted OpenPGP
certificates which, when parsed by gnutls, would cause it to crash.
(CVE-2017-5335, CVE-2017-5336, CVE-2017-5337, CVE-2017-7869)

* A null pointer dereference flaw was found in the way GnuTLS processed
ClientHello messages with status_request extension. A remote attacker could
use this flaw to cause an application compiled with GnuTLS to crash.
(CVE-2017-7507)

* A flaw was found in the way GnuTLS validated certificates using OCSP
responses. This could falsely report a certificate as valid under certain
circumstances. (CVE-2016-7444)

The CVE-2017-7507 issue was discovered by Hubert Kario (Red Hat QE BaseOS
Security team).
