Impact: Using curl with -L may allow a remote attacker to read or

write local files

Description: curl will follow HTTP and HTTPS redirects when used

with the -L option. When curl follows a redirect, it allows file://

URLs. This may allow a remote attacker to access local files. This

issue is addressed through improved validation of redirects. This

issue does not affect Mac OS X v10.6 systems. Credit to Daniel

Stenberg of Haxx AB for reporting this issue.

Available for: Mac OS X v10.6 through v10.6.2,

Mac OS X Server v10.6 through v10.6.2

Impact: Items copied in the Finder may be assigned an unexpected

file owner

Description: When performing an authenticated copy in the Finder,

original file ownership may be unexpectedly copied. This update

user performing the copy. This issue does not affect systems prior to

Mac OS X v10.6. Credit to Gerrit DeWitt of Auburn University (Auburn,

AL) for reporting this issue.

DesktopServices

CVE-ID: CVE-2010-0537

Available for: Mac OS X v10.6 through v10.6.2,

Mac OS X Server v10.6 through v10.6.2

Impact: A remote attacker may gain access to user data via a multi-

stage attack

Description: A path resolution issue in DesktopServices is

vulnerable to a multi-stage attack. A remote attacker must first

entice the user to mount an arbitrarily named share, which may be

done via a URL scheme. When saving a file using the default save

panel in any application, and using “Go to folder” or dragging

folders to the save panel, the data may be unexpectedly saved to the

malicious share. This issue is addressed through improved path

resolution. This issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X

v10.6. Credit to Sidney San Martin working with DeepTech, Inc. for

reporting this issue.

Impact: Mounting a maliciously crafted disk image may lead to

arbitrary code execution

Description: A design issue exists in the handling of internet

enabled disk images. Mounting an internet enabled disk image

containing a package file type will open it rather than revealing it

in the Finder. This file quarantine feature helps to mitigate this

issue by providing a warning dialog for unsafe file types. This issue

is addressed through improved handling of package file types on

internet enabled disk images. Credit to Brian Mastenbrook working

with TippingPoint’s Zero Day Initiative for reporting this issue.

Directory Services

CVE-ID: CVE-2010-0498

Available for: Mac OS X v10.5.8, Mac OS X Server v10.5.8,

Impact: An authenticated user may be able to send and receive mail

even if the user is not on the SACL of users who are permitted to do

so

Description: An access control issue exists in Dovecot when Kerberos

authentication is enabled. This may allow an authenticated user to

send and receive mail even if the user is not on the service access

control list (SACL) of users who are permitted to do so. This issue

is addressed through improved access control checks. This issue does

not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.6.

Available for: Mac OS X v10.5.8, Mac OS X Server v10.5.8,

Mac OS X v10.6 through v10.6.2, Mac OS X Server v10.6 through v10.6.2

Impact: A remote attacker may cause arbitrary systems to be added to

the firewall blacklist

Description: A reverse DNS lookup is performed on remote ssh clients

that fail to authenticate. A plist injection issue exists in the

handling of resolved DNS names. This may allow a remote attacker to

cause arbitrary systems to be added to the firewall blacklist. This

issue is addressed by properly escaping resolved DNS names. Credit:

Apple.

FreeRADIUS

CVE-ID: CVE-2010-0524

Available for: Mac OS X Server v10.5.8,

Mac OS X Server v10.6 through v10.6.2

Impact: A remote attacker may obtain access to a network via RADIUS

authentication

Description: A certificate authentication issue exists in the

default Mac OS X configuration of the FreeRADIUS server. A remote

attacker may use EAP-TLS with an arbitrary valid certificate to

authenticate and connect to a network configured to use FreeRADIUS

for authentication. This issue is addressed by disabling support for

EAP-TLS in the configuration. RADIUS clients should use EAP-TTLS

instead. This issue only affects Mac OS X Server systems. Credit to

CVE-ID: CVE-2010-0502

Available for: Mac OS X Server v10.5.8,

Mac OS X Server v10.6 through v10.6.2

Impact: Chat messages may not be logged

Description: A design issue exists in iChat Server’s support for

configurable group chat logging. iChat Server only logs messages with

certain message types. This may allow a remote user to send a message

through the server without it being logged. The issue is addressed by

removing the capability to disable group chat logs, and logging all

messages that are sent through the server. This issue only affects

Mac OS X Server systems. Credit: Apple.
