Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-11-03 15:19:05 UTC
From ${URL} :

"Aircrack-ng 1.2 Beta 3" multiple vulnerabilities
Four vulnerabilities exist on aircrack-ng <= 1.2 Beta 3 which allow remote/local code execution, privilege escalation 
and denial of service. Specifically, the following vulnerabilities were identified:
  -   A stack overflow at airodump-ng gps_tracker() which may lead to
code execution, privilege escalation.
  -   A length parameter inconsistency at aireplay tcp_test() which may
lead to remote code execution.
  -   A missing check for data format at buddy-ng which may lead to
denial of service.
  -   A missing check for invalid values at airserv-ng net_get() which
may lead to denial of service.

gps_tracer stack overflow  CVE-2014-8321
tcp_test length parameter inconsistency CVE-2014-8322
buddy-ng missing check  in data format CVE-2014-8323
net_get missing check for invalid values CVE-2014-8324
Bugs and fixes submit date:
CVE-2014-8321: Severity: High AV: Local Impact type: Code execution/Privilege escalation
CVE-2014-8322: Severity: Critical AV: Remote Impact type: Code execution
CVE-2014-8323: Severity: High AV: Remote Impact type: Denial of service
CVE-2014-8324: Severity: High AV: Remote Impact type: Denial of service

Solution - fix & patch:
Kali linux(and maybe some other distros) use to distribute aircrack-ng package
without stack cookie protection which makes CVE-2014-8322 easily exploitable.
The new package with stack cookie protection enabled is called debian/1.2-beta3-0kali3.

Download the respective commits from github. Soon a new version
will be released but at the time there is no patched version.


@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.
Comment 1 Rick Farina (Zero_Chaos) gentoo-dev 2014-11-03 15:49:03 UTC
RC1 is in cvs already, 1.2_beta3 isn't stable. rc1 is fine to stable, and we can remove all older versions for all I care.
Comment 2 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2014-11-03 16:12:17 UTC
Arches, please test and mark stable:
Target keywords : "amd64 arm ppc x86"

and =net-wireless/lorcon-0.0_p20130212-r1 since it is a DEPEND.

GLSA has been drafted.

Maintainers, please drop vulnerable versions so we can release the GLSA. Thanks.

You may feel free to not wait on me to do such things in the future, although it did feel really good to delete all that old stuff.
