[PROPOSAL] Cluster RECENT-35 - 18 candidates



The following cluster contains 18 candidates that were announced
between 8/25/2000 and 8/31/2000.  Board members can use the voting web
site instead of this ballot, which is posted for other Board members
and as a part of the public record.

These voting ballots include the new Analysis field as discussed in a
previous post with explanations of applications of content decisions.
The degree of vendor acknowledgement is also made more prominent.
Finally, a new ACCEPT_REASON form has been added for Board members to
include the reason why they vote to ACCEPT or MODIFY an item.

Summary of votes to use (in ascending order of "severity")
----------------------------------------------------------

ACCEPT - voter accepts the candidate as proposed
NOOP - voter has no opinion on the candidate
MODIFY - voter wants to change some MINOR detail (e.g. reference/description)
REVIEWING - voter is reviewing/researching the candidate, or needs more info
RECAST - candidate must be significantly modified, e.g. split or merged
REJECT - candidate is "not a vulnerability", or a duplicate, etc.

1) Please write your vote on the line that starts with "VOTE: ".  If
   you want to add comments or details, add them to lines after the
   VOTE: line.

2) If you see any missing references, please mention them so that they
   can be included.  References help greatly during mapping.

3) Note that a "MODIFY" is treated as an "ACCEPT" when counting votes.
   So if you don't have sufficient information for a candidate but you
   don't want to NOOP, use a REVIEWING.

********** NOTE ********** NOTE ********** NOTE ********** NOTE **********

Please keep in mind that your vote and comments will be recorded and
publicly viewable in the mailing list archives or in other formats.

attackers to read arbitrary files by specifying the file in the
$Attach$ hidden form variable.

Analysis
----------------
ED_PRI CAN-2000-0726 3
Vendor Acknowledgement: unknown

INCLUSION:

The poster indicates that he tested it successfully on a server, but
the vendor web site appears to be down.  This should not be included
in CVE without strong proof that it is (or was) a known problem.
However, it appears that a few ISP's still offer this as a service.

ANALYSIS:

The best documentation on the product seems to be at:

  http://www.cnsp.com/cgimail/cgimailins.htm

and the "Reserved Variables" certainly indicates the potential for
abuse.

This appears to have been originally discovered by Mnemonix in 1998
(http://ftp.hackzone.ru/nsp/info/www/cgi-bugs.htm) and replicated by a
few more sources (e.g. http://webm43ac.ntx.net/Articles/cgimail.html)
but there is still a question of whether this can be sufficiently
proven to exist.

The cgichk CGI scanner included this at least as recently as mid-1999,
but CGI scanners are notorious for cutting and pasting URL's from
other scanners, which makes it easy to introduce errors.

Buffer overflow in RobTex Viking server earlier than 1.06-370 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary
commands via a long HTTP GET request, or long Unless-Modified-Since,
If-Range, or If-Modified-Since headers.

Analysis
----------------
ED_PRI CAN-2000-0775 3
Vendor Acknowledgement: yes advisory
Content Decisions: SF-LOC

ABSTRACTION:

There are multiple attacks that can trigger a buffer overflow, both in
a long GET as well as long MIME headers.  If these are all due to the
same line of code (e.g. an fgets() call), then CD:SF-LOC says to
combine them all.  Otherwise, if there are separate lines of code for
each bad header, then separate entries should be created.  But should
CD:SF-LOC have a maximum number of entries for each different bug?  A
poorly written application might have dozens (or hundreds) of buffer
overflows in it, but should CVE have a separate entry for each one?

The level of abstraction of this candidate is the same as that for
CAN-2000-0623, which also has HTTP GET and header request problems.
