Solaris 10 (x86) : 152650-02 : dtappgather Arbitrary Directory Creation Local Privilege Escalation (EXTREMEPARR)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host is missing Sun Security Patch number 152650-02.

Description :

The remote Solaris host is missing patch number 152650-02. It is,
therefore, affected by a local privilege escalation vulnerability in
the dtappgather binary due to improper handling of user-supplied
arguments. A local attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted
command, to manipulate file permissions and create a user-owned
directory anywhere on the system with root privileges. The attacker
can then add shared objects to the folder and run setuid binaries with
a library file, resulting in root privileges.

EXTREMEPARR is one of multiple Equation Group vulnerabilities and
exploits disclosed on 2017/04/08 by a group known as the Shadow
Brokers.
