GLSA-202301-01 : NTFS-3G: Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 169841

Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-202301-01 (NTFS-3G: Multiple Vulnerabilities)

- In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS attribute is supplied to the function ntfs_get_attribute_value, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for memory disclosure or denial of service. The vulnerability is caused by an out-of-bound buffer access which can be triggered by mounting a crafted ntfs partition. The root cause is a missing consistency check after reading an MFT record : the bytes_in_use field should be less than the bytes_allocated field. When it is not, the parsing of the records proceeds into the wild. (CVE-2021-33285)

- In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted unicode string is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for code execution. (CVE-2021-33286)

- In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when specially crafted NTFS attributes are read in the function ntfs_attr_pread_i, a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for writing to arbitrary memory or denial of service of the application. (CVE-2021-33287)

- In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted MFT section is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur and allow for code execution. (CVE-2021-33289)

- In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS inode pathname is supplied in an NTFS image a heap buffer overflow can occur resulting in memory disclosure, denial of service and even code execution. (CVE-2021-35266)

- NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, a stack buffer overflow can occur when correcting differences in the MFT and MFTMirror allowing for code execution or escalation of privileges when setuid-root. (CVE-2021-35267)

- In NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS inode is loaded in the function ntfs_inode_real_open, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for code execution and escalation of privileges. (CVE-2021-35268)

- NTFS-3G versions < 2021.8.22, when a specially crafted NTFS attribute from the MFT is setup in the function ntfs_attr_setup_flag, a heap buffer overflow can occur allowing for code execution and escalation of privileges. (CVE-2021-35269)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a NULL pointer dereference in ntfs_extent_inode_open in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39251)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds read in ntfs_ie_lookup in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22.
(CVE-2021-39252)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds read in ntfs_runlists_merge_i in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22.
(CVE-2021-39253)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an integer overflow in memmove, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow in the function ntfs_attr_record_resize, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39254)

- A crafted NTFS image can trigger an out-of-bounds read, caused by an invalid attribute in ntfs_attr_find_in_attrdef, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39255)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_inode_lookup_by_name in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39256)

- A crafted NTFS image with an unallocated bitmap can lead to a endless recursive function call chain (starting from ntfs_attr_pwrite), causing stack consumption in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39257)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause out-of-bounds reads in ntfs_attr_find and ntfs_external_attr_find in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39258)

- A crafted NTFS image can trigger an out-of-bounds access, caused by an unsanitized attribute length in ntfs_inode_lookup_by_name, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39259)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds access in ntfs_inode_sync_standard_information in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39260)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_compressed_pwrite in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39261)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause an out-of-bounds access in ntfs_decompress in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22.
(CVE-2021-39262)

- A crafted NTFS image can trigger a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an unsanitized attribute in ntfs_get_attribute_value, in NTFS-3G < 2021.8.22. (CVE-2021-39263)

- An invalid return code in fuse_kern_mount enables intercepting of libfuse-lite protocol traffic between NTFS-3G and the kernel in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22 when using libfuse-lite. (CVE-2022-30783)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause heap exhaustion in ntfs_get_attribute_value in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22.
(CVE-2022-30784)

- A file handle created in fuse_lib_opendir, and later used in fuse_lib_readdir, enables arbitrary memory read and write operations in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22 when using libfuse-lite. (CVE-2022-30785)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_names_full_collate in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22. (CVE-2022-30786)

- An integer underflow in fuse_lib_readdir enables arbitrary memory read operations in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22 when using libfuse-lite. (CVE-2022-30787)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_mft_rec_alloc in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22. (CVE-2022-30788)

- A crafted NTFS image can cause a heap-based buffer overflow in ntfs_check_log_client_array in NTFS-3G through 2021.8.22. (CVE-2022-30789)

- A buffer overflow was discovered in NTFS-3G before 2022.10.3. Crafted metadata in an NTFS image can cause code execution. A local attacker can exploit this if the ntfs-3g binary is setuid root. A physically proximate attacker can exploit this if NTFS-3G software is configured to execute upon attachment of an external storage device. (CVE-2022-40284)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

All NTFS-3G users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose >=sys-fs/ntfs3g-2022.10.3
