Cisco Security Advisory: Cisco IOS Virtual Private Dial-up Network Denial of Service Vulnerability

Advisory ID: cisco-sa-20080326-pptp

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20080326-pptp.shtml

Revision 1.0

For Public Release 2008 March 26 1600 UTC (GMT)

Summary

Two vulnerabilities exist in the virtual private dial-up network (VPDN) solution when Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) is used in certain Cisco IOS releases prior to 12.3. PPTP is only one of the supported tunneling protocols used to tunnel PPP frames within the VPDN solution.

The first vulnerability is a memory leak that occurs as a result of PPTP session termination. The second vulnerability may consume all interface descriptor blocks on the affected device because those devices will not reuse virtual access interfaces. If these vulnerabilities are repeatedly exploited, the memory and/or interface resources of the attacked device may be depleted.

Cisco has made free software available to address these vulnerabilities for affected customers.

There are no workarounds available to mitigate the effects of these vulnerabilities.

Affected Products

Devices that are running certain Cisco IOS versions prior to 12.3 with VPDN enabled may be affected by these vulnerabilities.

Vulnerable Products +------------------

Devices that are running affected versions of Cisco IOS with VPDN enabled and are configured to accept termination of PPTP sessions are vulnerable.

To determine whether VPDN is enabled on your device, log in to the device and issue the command-line interface (CLI) command "show running-config". If the output contains "vpdn enable" along with a "vpdn-group <name>" command, VPDN is enabled on the device. The device will accept termination of PPTP sessions if the command "protocol any" or "protocol pptp" is defined under the "vpdn-group <name>" command. The following example shows a device that is running VPDN and will accept termination of PPTP sessions:

Router#show running-config 
Building configuration...

!--- Output truncated.
!

vpdn enable

!

vpdn-group test_only
! Default PPTP VPDN group
 accept-dialin
  protocol pptp
  virtual-template 1

!
!---Remaining output truncated.

To determine the software version running on a Cisco product, log in to the device and issue the "show version" command to display the system banner. Cisco IOS software will identify itself as "Internetwork Operating System Software" or simply "IOS." On the next line of output, the image name will be displayed between parentheses, followed by "Version" and the IOS release name. Other Cisco devices will not have the "show version" command or will give different output.

The following example identifies a Cisco product that is running Cisco IOS release 12.2(7):

Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software 
IOS &#40;tm&#41; 7200 Software &#40;C7200-IS-M&#41;, Version 12.2&#40;7&#41;, RELEASE SOFTWARE &#40;fc1&#41;

Additional information about Cisco IOS release naming can be found at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/620/1.html.

Products Confirmed Not Vulnerable +--------------------------------

Devices that are running Cisco IOS versions 12.3 and later are not affected by these vulnerabilities. Devices that are explicitly configured for VPDN protocols other than PPTP are not affected.

Devices that are running Cisco IOS versions prior to 12.3 and do not have VPDN enabled are not affected by these vulnerabilities.

Cisco IOS XR is not affected by these vulnerabilities.

Details

VPDNs securely carry private data over a public network, allowing remote users to access a private network over a shared infrastructure such as the Internet. VPDNs maintain the same security and management policies as a private network, while providing a cost-effective method for point-to-point connections between remote users and a central network.

PPTP is a network protocol that enables the secure transfer of data from a remote client to a private enterprise server by creating a VPDN across TCP/IP-based data networks. PPTP supports on-demand, multiprotocol, virtual private networking over public networks, such as the Internet.

Details regarding the two known vulnerabilities in Cisco IOS devices that are running affected versions of system software follow:

  • Memory Leak due to PPTP Session Termination

    Upon completion of a PPTP session, memory is leaked from the processor memory on the terminating device. This is shown in the output of "show process memory" under the Dead process. The Dead process is not a real process. Its function is to account for the memory that is allocated under the context of another process which has terminated, in this case PPTP. When the administrator is logged into the device, if the device is under exploitation, the Holding entry of the Dead process under the "show process memory" command will be increasing. Following is an example showing a device that is holding Dead memory:

    Router#show process memory 
    Total: 199718560, Used: 11147828, Free: 188570732
     PID TTY  Allocated      Freed    Holding    Getbufs    Retbufs Process

       0   0        444     778840        444          0          0 *Sched*         
       0   0   17481700    4930848     819672     180908          0 *Dead*

    !--- Output truncated.
    

    The CLI command "show memory dead" allows administrators to examine the contents of Dead. The output will display many occurrences of PPTP in the output if the PPTP process is causing the leak. The following example shows the dead memory for a device that has been exploited by the vulnerability

    Router#show memory dead

    This vulnerability is documented in Cisco bug ID CSCsj58566 and Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) identifier CVE-2008-1151 has been assigned to this vulnerability.

  • Virtual Access Interfaces Are Not Re-used

    Upon completion of a PPTP session, affected devices do not remove the virtual access interface that is associated with the PPTP session and do not reuse the interfaces in any future connections.

    This situation can result in an exhaustion of the interface descriptor block (IDB) limit, which will prevent any new interfaces being created within Cisco IOS, effectively blocking all new VPDN connections, even though the router may still have enough processor memory to remain up and running. A reload of the device is required to remove the interfaces.

    An IDB is a Cisco IOS internal data structure that contains information such as the IP address, interface state, and packet statistics. Cisco IOS software maintains one IDB for each interface present on a platform and one IDB for each subinterface.

    Further documentation on Cisco IOS IDBs can be found at: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1835/products_tech_note09186a0080094322.shtml This vulnerability is documented in Cisco bug ID CSCdv59309 and Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) identifier CVE-2008-1150 has been assigned to this vulnerability.

With continued exploitation, the device will deplete its processor memory or reach an IDB limit. Both impacts would result in a denial of service condition for the device.

Software Versions and Fixes

When considering software upgrades, also consult http://www.cisco.com/go/psirt and any subsequent advisories to determine exposure and a complete upgrade solution.

In all cases, customers should exercise caution to be certain the devices to be upgraded contain sufficient memory and that current hardware and software configurations will continue to be supported properly by the new release. If the information is not clear, contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center ("TAC") or your contracted maintenance provider for assistance.

Each row of the Cisco IOS software table (below) names a Cisco IOS release train. If a given release train is vulnerable, then the earliest possible releases that contain the fix (along with the anticipated date of availability for each, if applicable) are listed in the "First Fixed Release" column of the table. The "Recommended Release" column indicates the releases which have fixes for all the published vulnerabilities at the time of this Advisory. A device running a release in the given train that is earlier than the release in a specific column (less than the First Fixed Release) is known to be vulnerable. Cisco recommends upgrading to a release equal to or later than the release in the "Recommended Releases" column of the table.

Workarounds

There are no workarounds for this vulnerability. Cisco recommends upgrading to the fixed version of Cisco IOS.

Obtaining Fixed Software

Cisco will make free software available to address this vulnerability for affected customers. This advisory will be updated as fixed software becomes available. Prior to deploying software, customers should consult their maintenance provider or check the software for feature set compatibility and known issues specific to their environment.

Customers may only install and expect support for the feature sets they have purchased. By installing, downloading, accessing or otherwise using such software upgrades, customers agree to be bound by the terms of Cisco's software license terms found at http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-license-agreement.html or as otherwise set forth at Cisco.com Downloads at http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-center/sw-usingswc.shtml.

Do not contact either "psirt@cisco.com" or "security-alert@cisco.com" for software upgrades.

Customers with Service Contracts +-------------------------------

Customers with contracts should obtain upgraded software through their regular update channels. For most customers, this means that upgrades should be obtained through the Software Center on Cisco's worldwide website at http://www.cisco.com.

Customers using Third Party Support Organizations +------------------------------------------------

Customers whose Cisco products are provided or maintained through prior or existing agreement with third-party support organizations such as Cisco Partners, authorized resellers, or service providers should contact that support organization for guidance and assistance with the appropriate course of action in regards to this advisory.

The effectiveness of any workaround or fix is dependent on specific customer situations such as product mix, network topology, traffic behavior, and organizational mission. Due to the variety of affected products and releases, customers should consult with their service provider or support organization to ensure any applied workaround or fix is the most appropriate for use in the intended network before it is deployed.

Customers without Service Contracts +----------------------------------

Customers who purchase direct from Cisco but who do not hold a Cisco service contract and customers who purchase through third-party vendors but are unsuccessful at obtaining fixed software through their point of sale should get their upgrades by contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC). TAC contacts are as follows.
