Overview

A vulnerability in various UNIX and Linux PDF viewers/readers may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands on your system.

Description

Adobe Systems Incorporated describes PDF (Portable Document Format) as “a universal file format that preserves the fonts, images, graphics, and layout of any source document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it.” A viewer such as Adobe Reader or Xpdf is needed to view a document encoded in PDF. Various PDF viewers are widely deployed on the Internet. Quoting from the Adobe Systems Incorporated web site:

Governments and enterprises around the world have adopted PDF to streamline document management, increase productivity, and reduce reliance on paper…An open file format specification, PDF is available to anyone who wants to develop tools to create, view, or manipulate PDF documents. Indeed, more than 1,800 vendors offer PDF-based solutions, ensuring that organizations that adopt the PDF standard have a variety of tools to leverage the Portable Document Format and to customize document processes.

When a victim clicks on a hyperlink contained within a malicious PDF file, an attacker may be able to execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the victim. This is possible because some UNIX and Linux PDF readers/viewers spawn external programs to handle hyperlinks by invoking the shell command interpreter.


Impact

A remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary commands with the privileges of the victim.


Solution

Apply a patch when available.

CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT


PACKAGE : xpdf
SUMMARY : Embedded commands execution vulnerability
DATE : 2003-07-04 10:57:00
ID : CLA-2003:674
RELEVANT
RELEASES : 7.0, 8, 9
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
DESCRIPTION
Xpdf is a viewer for Portable Document Format (PDF) files.`

This update fixes a vulnerability that allows attackers to embed commands in document hyperlinks. If the user clicks in an hyperlink created by the attacker, it can execute malicious commands when calling a external program (web browsers, mail programs, etc).

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2003-0434 to this issue.

SOLUTION All xpdf users should upgrade.

Debian __ Affected

Notified: May 15, 2003 Updated: May 19, 2003

Status

Affected

Vendor Statement

In Debian 2.2 (potato) and Debian 3.0 (woody), the URL loading feature of xpdf is disabled per default, but the bug is present if the user explicitly changes the configuration.

In Debian 3.0 (woody), an example urlCommand is supplied (which is commented out). This example quotes the argument against interpretation of shell metacharacters:

#urlCommand “netscape -remote ‘openURL(%s)’”

(though execution of other netscape -remote commands may be possible if this command is uncommented and used)

In Debian ‘testing’ and ‘unstable’ (xpdf 2.02-2), xpdf is configured to quote the argument in urlCommand:

urlCommand “sensible-browser ‘%s’”

Vendor Information

The vendor has not provided us with any further information regarding this vulnerability.

The CERT/CC has no additional comments at this time.

Notified: May 15, 2003 Updated: June 17, 2003

Status

Affected

Vendor Statement

Sun does not ship a PDF viewer with Solaris and therefore Solaris is not affected by this issue. However, xpdf which is provided as an unsupported package on the Solaris Companion CD:

<http://wwws.sun.com/software/solaris/freeware/index.html&gt;

is affected.

Sites using the freeware version of xpdf from the Solaris Companion CD will have to upgrade to a later version available from:

<http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/download.html&gt;

Sun Linux, version 5.0 is affected by this vulnerability. Two of its PDF viewing applications, xpdf and Adobe Acrobat Reader for Linux ™ are affected. However ghostview and kghostview are not.

Sun will be issuing a Sun Alert for Sun Linux describing the patch information which will be available from:

Xpdf __ Affected

Notified: May 20, 2003 Updated: June 17, 2003

Status

Affected

Vendor Statement

A new version of Xpdf (2.02pl1) is now available on the Xpdf web site:

<http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/&gt;

This version includes a small patch that fixes a security hole in version 2.02. It was possible to construct a malicious URL link in a PDF file which would cause an arbitrary command to be run. The patch changes things to that the various characters which can cause trouble are escaped (%xx) before calling system(). This patch also changes the “launch” link verification dialog to provide a scrolling view of the command about to be run when the command string is excessively long.

This security hole (and the patch) only affect the Unix viewer – they do not affect the command tools on Unix, Windows, or other operating systems.
