CVE-2003-0120

Published: 2003-03-07 05:00:00
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database (NVD)
Summary:

adb2mhc in the mhc-utils package before 0.25+20010625-7.1 allows local users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a default temporary directory with a predictable name.

Exploitability Analysis:

This is a vulnerability exploitable with only local access requires the attacker to have either physical access to the vulnerable system or a local (shell) account. Examples of locally exploitable vulnerabilities are peripheral attacks such as Firewire/USB DMA attacks, and local privilege escalations (e.g., sudo).

Exploitability Complexity:

Specialized access conditions exist. For example, in most configurations, the attacking party must already have elevated privileges or spoof additional systems in addition to the attacking system (e.g., DNS hijacking). The attack depends on social engineering methods that would be easily detected by knowledgeable people. For example, the victim must perform several suspicious or atypical actions. The vulnerable configuration is seen very rarely in practice. If a race condition exists, the window is very narrow.

Authentication:

Authentication is not required to access and exploit the vulnerability.

Confidentiality Impact:

There is no impact to the confidentiality of the system.

Integrity Impact:

Modification of some system files or information is possible, but the attacker does not have control over what can be modified, or the scope of what the attacker can affect is limited. For example, system or application files may be overwritten or modified, but either the attacker has no control over which files are affected or the attacker can modify files within only a limited context or scope.

Availability Impact:

There is no impact to the availability of the system.
