Solaris 10 (sparc) : 152649-02 : dtappgather Arbitrary Directory Creation Local Privilege Escalation (EXTREMEPARR)
High Nessus Plugin ID 99756
SynopsisThe remote host is missing Sun Security Patch number 152649-02.
DescriptionThe remote Solaris host is missing patch number 152649-02. 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.
SolutionYou should install patch 152649-02 for your system to be up-to-date.
