          IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (TSM) Local Root

                Kryptos Logic, December 2010

=====[ Timeline

Vendor Contacted...........: 2009-12-14
Fix from Vendor............: 2010-12-14
Advisory Published.........: 2010-12-15


=====[ Affected Versions

Vulnerable:
IBM TSM 6.1: 6.1.0.0 through 6.1.3.0
IBM TSM 5.5: 5.5.0.0 through 5.5.2.7
IBM TSM 5.4: 5.4.0.0 through 5.4.3.3
IBM TSM 5.3: 5.3.0.0 through 5.3.6.7
- Potentially older versions of IBM TSM dsmtca

Not vulnerable:
IBM TSM 6.1.4
IBM TSM 5.5.3
IBM TSM 5.4.3.4
IBM TSM 5.3.6.10

See IBM advisory IC65491 for details:
http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21454745


=====[ Vulnerability

When IBM TSM communicates with the suid root backup client
dsmtca, it is handled through pipes. The function
GeneratePassword() does not perform boundary checking, which can
lead to a classic stack based buffer overflow - making local
code execution possible.


=====[ Exploitation

The LANG environment variable gets copied to a fixed location in
memory. An attacker can achieve arbitrary code execution by
placing his shellcode in the variable, and then overwrite the
return address of GeneratePassword() with the known address that
the value is copied to.
