This week we look at how Ubuntu is faring at Pwn2Own 2021 (which still has 1 day and 2 more attempts at pwning Ubuntu 20.10 to go) plus we look at security updates for SpamAssassin, the Linux kernel, Rack and Django, and we cover some open positions on the Ubuntu Security team too.

This week in Ubuntu Security Updates

14 unique CVEs addressed

[USN-4899-1] SpamAssassin vulnerability [00:46]

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Xenial (16.04 LTS), Bionic (18.04 LTS), Focal (20.04 LTS)
  • Damian Lukowski - remote code execution in configuration file parser for SpamAssassin - failed to properly sanitise certain elements of config files so could allow an attacker to specify commands to be executed by SpamAssassin - if not using configs from untrusted sources should be fine

[USN-4900-1] OpenEXR vulnerabilities [01:40]

[USN-4901-1] Linux kernel (Trusty HWE) vulnerabilities [02:24]

[USN-4561-2] Rack vulnerabilities [03:27]

  • 2 CVEs addressed in Xenial (16.04 LTS), Focal (20.04 LTS), Groovy (20.10)
  • Modular Ruby webserver interface
  • Episode 93 - 18.04 LTS - now provided for remaining releases

[USN-4902-1] Django vulnerability [03:53]

  • 1 CVEs addressed in Xenial (16.04 LTS), Bionic (18.04 LTS), Focal (20.04 LTS), Groovy (20.10)
  • Potential directory traversal via uploaded files - if using a custom upload handler with the MultiPartParser from the django parsers framework, could have been vulnerable - didn’t affect any of the built-in upload parsers within django hence the low priority rating for this CVE

Goings on in Ubuntu Security Community

Ubuntu at Pwn2Own 2021 [04:47]

  • https://www.zerodayinitiative.com/blog/2021/4/2/pwn2own-2021-schedule-and-live-results
  • 6th, 7th & 8th April - 23 separate entries targeting 10 different products in the categories of Web Browsers, Virtualization, Servers, Local Escalation of Privilege, and Enterprise Communications (aka Zoom, MS Teams etc)
  • 14 years - grows each year to include new targets / platforms - this year included categories for both automotive (Tesla Model 3) and Enterprise applications (MS Office, Adobe Reader) - but neither had any entrants
  • 4 different teams targeted Ubuntu Desktop in local privilege escalation category - go from a standard user to root - and pwn2own rules say this must be via a kernel vulnerability - in this case it is an up-to-date Ubuntu 20.10 install running inside a virtual machine
  • Attempts on day 1 and 2 were both successful - Ryota Shiga of Flatt Security and Manfred Paul both used separate OOB access bugs to escalate from a standard user to root
    • each earned $30,000 and 3 points in the competitions Master of Pwn award
  • Tomorrow (8th) will see two more attempts by Billy from STAR Labs and Vincent Dehors of Synacktiv - this will be live-streamed too on YouTube, Twitch, and the conference site.
  • Also not just Ubuntu was exploited - so far all teams who have attempted to exploit have been successful - Safari, MS Exchange, MS Teams, Windows 10, Parallels Desktop, Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Zoom
    • only exception so far is for STAR Labs who have not managed to get their exploits working in the allotted time
  • More details to follow once the vulns and their fixes become public - competition has a 90 day policy for fixes to be public but I suspect we will see these sooner than that - regardless will look at remaining results of other 2 teams next week as well
