Vulnerability Assessment Details

Solaris 10 Telnet Authentication Bypass

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Attempts to log in as -fbin

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

It is possible to log into the remote system using telnet without
supplying any credentials

Description :

The remote version of telnet does not sanitize the user-supplied
'USER' environement variable. By supplying a specially malformed
USER environment variable, a possible hacker may force the remote
telnet server to believe that the user has already authenticated.

For instance, the following command :


telnet -l '-fbin' targethost

Will result in obtaining a shell with the rights of the 'bin'
user.

Solution :

Install patches 120068-02 (sparc) or 120069-02 (i386)
which are available from Sun.

Filter incoming to this port or disable the telnet service
and use SSH instead, or use inetadm to mitigate this
problem (see the link below).
