apt security update

Postby None1975 » 2019-01-22 14:50

Max Justicz discovered a vulnerability in APT, the high level package manager (CVE ID : CVE-2019-3462). The code handling HTTP redirects in the HTTP transport method doesn't properly sanitize fields transmitted over the wire. This vulnerability could be used by an attacker located as a man-in-the-middle between APT and a mirror to inject malicous content in the HTTP connection. This content could then be recognized as a valid package by APT and used later for code execution with root privileges on the target machine. Since the vulnerability is present in the package manager itself, it is recommended to disable redirects in order to prevent exploitation during this
upgrade only, using:
Code: Select all
apt -o Acquire::http::AllowRedirect=false update
apt -o Acquire::http::AllowRedirect=false upgrade

This is known to break some proxies when used against security.debian.org. If that happens, people can switch their security APT source to use:
deb http://cdn-fastly.deb.debian.org/debian-security stable/updates main

Specific upgrade instructions:
If upgrading using APT without redirect is not possible in your situation, you can manually download the files (using wget/curl) for your architecture using the URL provided below, verifying that the hashes match. Then you can install
them using dpkg -i.

Do we know if this applies to https sources as well? The CVE is a little lacking in detail (or I'm being thick, again).

To answer my own question: https is protective against this vulnerability.

For those who don't have apt-listchanges installed:

apt-listchanges: News
=============

apt (1.4.2) unstable; urgency=medium

If periodic updates and unattended upgrades are enabled, the start of
periodic updates are now distributed over 24 hour intervals (as in 1.2
to 1.4), whereas starting unattended-upgrade has been restricted to a
time between 6 and 7 am. This only affects systems using systemd, other
systems still use the classical hourly cron job.

-- Julian Andres Klode <jak@debian.org> Thu, 04 May 2017 22:54:02 +0200

apt (1.4~beta1) unstable; urgency=medium

Support for GPG signatures using the SHA1 or RIPE-MD/160 hash
algorithms has been disabled. Repositories using Release files
signed in such a way will stop working. This change has been made
due to security considerations, especially with regards to possible
further breakthroughs in SHA1 breaking during the lifetime
of this APT release series.

It is possible (but STRONGLY ADVISED AGAINST) to revert to the previous
behaviour by setting the options
APT::Hashes::SHA1::Weak "yes";
APT::Hashes::RIPE-MD/160::Weak "yes";
Note that setting these options only affects the verification of the overall
repository signature.

-- Julian Andres Klode <jak@debian.org> Fri, 25 Nov 2016 13:19:32 +0100

apt (1.2~exp1) experimental; urgency=medium

[ Automatic removal of debs after install ]
After packages are successfully installed by apt(8),
the corresponding .deb package files will be
removed from the /var/cache/apt/archives cache directory.

This can be changed by setting the apt configuration option
"Binary::apt::APT::Keep-Downloaded-Packages" to "true". E.g:

# echo 'Binary::apt::APT::Keep-Downloaded-Packages "true";' \
> /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/01keep-debs

Please note that the behavior of apt-get is unchanged. The
downloaded debs will be kept in the cache directory after they
are installed. To enable the behavior for other tools, you can set
"APT::Keep-Downloaded-Packages" to false.

[ Compressed indices ]
If you use Acquire::gzipIndexes, or any other compressed index targets,
those will now be compressed with the fastest supported algorithm,
currently lz4.

-- Michael Vogt <mvo@debian.org> Tue, 05 Jan 2016 19:22:16 +0100

apt (1.1~exp9) experimental; urgency=medium

A new algorithm for pinning has been implemented, it now assigns a
pin priority to a version instead of assigning a pin to a package.

This might break existing corner cases of pinning, if they use multiple
pins involving the same package name or patterns matching the same
package name, but should overall lead to pinning that actually works
as intended and documented.

interesting

I wonder how long this CVE has been in play...... how many upgrades we have processed without understanding this.

I checked my system
Code: Select all
$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:   Debian
Description:   Debian GNU/Linux 9.7 (stretch)
Release:   9.7
Codename:   stretch


....so, I've moved to 9.7 without doing the no redirect thing.
