Subject: [vendor-sec] CUPS STR #3200 issue (CVE-2009-3553) CRD = 2009-11-18
Errors-To: vendor-sec-admin@lst.de

Hello vendors,

  pretty long time ago Opher reported CUPS DoS (cupsd crash),
  which can be performed from Win XP SP3 client - STR #3200:

    [1] http://www.cups.org/str.php?L3200

  We further investigated the issue (reproduced) and Tim Waugh
  analyzed the reasons (see advisory) and provided patch
  (attached cups-1.3.10-CVE-2009-3553.patch, cups-1.4.2-CVE-2009-3553.patch).

  CVE identifier of CVE-2009-3553 has been already assigned
  to this issue.

  While the issue is meta-public, original ticket [1] suggests
  to provide more information and reference [1] in new ticket,
  so we would like to address this via coordinated CUPS release.

  Embargo date has been set up to Wednesday, 2009-11-18,
  12:00 UTC time. Please let us know, if this doesn't suit for
  you for some reason.

Thanks && Regards, Jan.

CUPS background:
The Common UNIX?? Printing System (CUPS) provides a portable
printing layer for UNIX operating systems.

CVE-2009-3553 flaw:
A pointer use-after-free flaw was found in the way CUPS
used to handle references in its abstract file descriptors
handling interface. Remote attacker could issue a specially-
-crafted get-printer-jobs request, leading to denial of
service (cupsd crash).

Flaw analysis (by Tim Waugh):
The CUPS scheduler uses an abstracted interface to handle select(),
poll(), epoll() and kqueue for systems that support them, in ascending
order of preference.  The interface is simple, and the relevant parts

* cupsdAddSelect, to add a particular file descriptor to the watch list,
  setting read/write callbacks and context
* cupsdRemoveSelect, to remove a particular file descriptor from the
  watch list
* cupsdDoSelect, to watch for changes and invoke callbacks as necessary

The cupsdDoSelect() function uses whichever system method is best to
watch for changes, and each time changes are discovered it loops through
the watch list.  For each file descriptor there are changes on:

1. the watch list item has its reference count incremented in order to
prevent problems if the read callback calls cupsdRemoveSelect for this
file descriptor
2. if there is data readable, the read callback is invoked
3. if there is data writable, the write callback is invoked
4. the reference count is decremented again

Unfortunately this reference counting is not sufficient to prevent
problems if the read callback calls cupsdRemoveSelect, and the reason is
the context data that is set when cupsdAddSelect is called.  Although
the data in the watch list is protected (including the pointer to the
context), the context *data* is not reference counted.

In main.c, cupsdDoSelect() is used to handle client connections and the
context is of type cupsd_client_t.  When the read callback discovers
that the connection has been closed by the remote host, the file
descriptor is removed from the watch list using cupsdRemoveSelect, and
the cupsd_client_t object is freed.

If cupsdDoSelect() enters an iteration of its file descriptor loop
hoping to call both the read and write callbacks, but the read callback
closes the connection with cupsdCloseConnection, the write callback will
attempt to reference freed memory, leading to undefined behaviour.

A suggested fix for this is to avoid calling the write callback if
cupsdRemoveSelect() function was called from the read callback.  I have
made a patch which does something similar by adding a 'changed' member
to the watch list structure, setting it in cupsdAddSelect() and
cupsdRemoveSelect(), clearing it before the read callback is called, and
checking it afterwards.  

Affected CUPS versions: CUPS-1.3.* <= x <= CUPS-1.4.2 (latest)

CVE identifier:  CVE-2009-3553 has been assigned to this issue

CRD date: Wednesday, 2009-11-18, 12:00 UTC time

  Pretty complex - unable to reproduce the issue from Linux client.
  Requires Win XP SP3 client with Sun Java JDK-1.6.0-13 installed.

  Java Cups Test Jobs client:

    Server has 300 active printing jobs.
    Client issues Get-print-jobs request, thinks its incomplete,
    aborts and resend TCP RST.
    CUPS-1.3.10 - clean crash (see attached debug && debug2 log).
    CUPS-1.3.11 - crash (but logs aren't so "beauty").
    CUPS-1.4.2 - no record for cupsd crash in /var/log/messages,
                 but cupsd just "is not running after exploitation."

 See also "raw_steps.txt" and sample textonly.ppd for elaborated list
 of steps.

Attached are patches against 1.3.10 and 1.4.2 versions of CUPS,
provided by Tim Waugh.

a, Linux host with running cupsd 'serversHostname', 'serversIP'
b, Windows client - 'clientsIP'
                  - was using "en_windows_xp_home_with_service_pack_3_x86_cd_x14-82413" and
                  - Java SE Development Kit 6u13 from:


(Selected "Windows x64" platform).

CUPS Preparation phase:

a, remove all cups related stuff from the system

b, download and install cups

wget http://ftp.easysw.com/pub/cups/1.3.10/cups-1.3.10-source.tar.gz
tar xvzf cups-1.3.10-source.tar.gz
cd cups-1.3.10
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --enable-debug && make && make install

c, configure cups:
#  modify cups to listen on 'serversIP' and allow connection from 'clientsIP'

vi /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf

LogLevel info | debug | debug2

# Only listen for connections from the local machine.
Listen localhost:631
Listen serversHostname:631
# Restrict access to the server...
<Location />
  Allow From clientsIP
  Order allow,deny

# add text-only printer to /usr/local/etc/cups/printers.conf
See attached textonly.ppd, you will need to change the serversHostname
in the:

  DeviceURI ipp://serversHostname/printers/my_printer 

row, other rows can be kept without change.

# start cups and check if it recognizes 'test1' printer
/etc/init.d/cups start
/usr/local/bin/lpstat -v

# schedule about 300 printing jobs
head -1000 /usr/share/dict/words > /tmp/file.txt
for i in `seq 1 300`; do /usr/local/bin/lp -d test1 /tmp/file.txt; done

JAVA client preparation phase:

# Install the SUN JDK 1.6.0_13 Java on Windows

# Set the JAVA_HOME variable
set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_13\bin
(and potentially check via 'echo %JAVA_HOME%)

# Download the malformed client and extract it
wget http://www.cups.org/strfiles/3200/Client.zip
unzip Client.zip && unzip cups-java-client-1.3.jar

Attack scenario:

# Run the java client with 'serversIP' two times

java TestCupsGetJobs serversIP

(you should see something like:

  "Requested X bytes; Got: Y bytes. Partial string:"
). Then repeat the request till you get:

  "Connection refused:" (two times should be enough)

Now check /var/log/messages for
"*** glibc detected: /usr/local/sbin/cupsd: double free or corruption (top): address ***

You can also check /usr/local/var/log/cups/error_log for full
stack trace (in case 'debug2' log level was set up)

Comment 1 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 15:19:46 UTC
I was already wondering where the weekly CUPS security issue is
for this week...

Comment #0 reads:
"Affected CUPS versions: CUPS-1.3.* <= x <= CUPS-1.4.2"

The command
where_sources cups 2>/dev/null | egrep 'cups 1\.3|cups 1\.4'
results the following maintained and affected distributions:

cups-1.3.7 in 11.0

cups-1.3.9 in 11.1, sle11, sle11-moblin20

Strange that "where_sources" does not return 11.2 at all
but we have

cups-1.3.11 in 11.2 and in openSUSE:Factory

I will fix it for now only for 11.0 and sle11.

Please file a separated bug report for sle11-moblin20.

I will fix it for 11.2 and openSUSE:Factory
after the issue was published.

By the way:

I wonder why it is "critical"?
Wouldn't be "major" sufficient for DOS so that we could use
"critical" for really critical stuff like remote root exploits?

Reasoning (only from my point of view of course):
Usually a remote denial of service for CUPS is actually not
such a terrible issue because nobody lets arbitrary users
access his print server because in the end this results
in access to the printer hardware.
It is practically impossible to mitigate printer hardware access
(and provide the users reasonable printing service nevertheless)
by having whatever sophisticated print server in between
because in the end the printer hardware processes data which
is basically a program which controls the printer machine
(also for non-PostScript printers).
In particular any user who is allowed to print
can always do DoS-like stuff, for example by sending
this job to all print queues
  { } loop
which will hang up any PostScript interpreter (Ghostscript or
the printer's built-in interpreter).
It is crucial to limit access to CUPS to trusted users
(nobody wants to let random users print on his printers)
and then DOS attacks are not such a big problem.
Comment 2 Thomas Biege 2009-11-12 15:40:08 UTC
I am neither happy with a bug per week dropping down to us, that doesn't scale. Therefore I set the bug on the list of planned updates. Let's wait before you submit new packages, maybe there will be more issues appearing.

where_source may not be adjusted for 11.2 maybe.

Severity "Critical" is set automatically because of the close coordinated release date. I'll adjust it.

BTW, was it possible to fix bug 542142 and bug 499735 with the latest security update. If so I can remove them from the planned update list.
Comment 3 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 16:03:13 UTC
I do not exactly understand what you ask in your "BTW" above.

Bug #499735 was fixed by me for all distributions
where it should fixed (SLE10-SP3 and SLE11-SP1), see
Do you miss a distribution where it should also be fixed?
Note that cups-backends is not a sub-package of cups, see

In contrast Bug #542142 is not "my bug" because this one
is about cups-autoconfig which is neither a sub-package of cups
nor am I the cups-autoconfig package maintainer, see

I like such main package names "foo-bar" very much
where its first part "foo" is a different main package!

Of course the opposite madness happens also:
"gutenprint" is currently a sub-package of "cups-drivers"
but its names do not indicate this - I will fix this
when time permits for openSUSE 11.3, see
Comment 4 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 16:23:05 UTC
Created attachment 327167 [details]

Submitted fixed cups-1.3.9 to SLE11/cups
Comment 5 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 16:27:34 UTC
Up to now I didn't test it at all.

According to what comment #0 reads
"Pretty complex - unable to reproduce the issue from Linux client.
 Requires Win XP SP3 client with Sun Java JDK-1.6.0-13 installed."
I can neither reporoduce nor test it.

As hopefully-best-effort attempt I will run the fixed cups-1.3.9
on my workstaiton for the next several days and see if I might
detect whatever regression by chance but my workstation
has of course not at all a real CUPS server printing load.
Comment 6 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 17:02:42 UTC
Submitted cups-1.3.9 fixed with attachment #327167 [details]
to 11.1

There is a typo in comment #1:

"I will fix it for now only for 11.0 and sle11."

"I will fix it for now only for 11.0, 11.1 and sle11."
Comment 7 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 17:25:58 UTC
Submitted cups-1.3.7 fixed with attachment #327167 [details]
to 11.0

For now (i.e. as long as the issue in nut published) it is fixed
but according to comment #5 I can neither reporoduce nor test it.
Comment 8 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 17:28:06 UTC
Reopening and reassigning to security-team
for further processing.

I would appreciate it if you could tell me when
the issue was published so that I can then
fix it also for 11.2 and openSUSE:Factory.
Comment 9 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 17:50:25 UTC
I run the fixed cups-1.3.9 on my workstation
and basic printing seems to work as well as before:

I can print locally on my HP LaserJet 1220 USB printer
using various drivers (PostScript and several PCL drivers).

I can print via our CUPS server print.suse.de
on our network printers.

The cupsd on my workstaiton can send Browsing info
to a client host which can then print via the cupsd
on my workstaiton on my HP LaserJet 1220 USB printer.
Comment 10 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-12 18:06:31 UTC
I wonder if the patch which is shown in comment #0
is really the full patch because Tim wrote there:

"I have made a patch which does something similar
 by adding a 'changed' member to the watch list structure,
 setting it in cupsdAddSelect() and cupsdRemoveSelect(),
 clearing it before the read callback is called, and
 checking it afterwards."

According to the patch which is shown in comment #0
and which I applied as attachment #327167 [details]
it seems "fdptr->use" is this 'changed' member?

If I am right, I do not understand the current patch
because after it was applied I get only
(long lines are wrapped only here):
find . | xargs grep 'fdptr->use'
./scheduler/select.c:    fdptr->use = 1;
./scheduler/select.c:    if (fdptr->use > 1 && fdptr->write_cb
                             && event->filter == EVFILT_WRITE)
./scheduler/select.c:   if (fdptr->use > 1 && fdptr->write_cb
                            && (event->events & (EPOLLOUT
                                | EPOLLERR | EPOLLHUP)))
./scheduler/select.c:      if (fdptr->use > 1 && fdptr->write_cb
                               && (pfd->revents & (POLLOUT
                                   | POLLERR | POLLHUP)))
./scheduler/select.c:      if (fdptr->use > 1 && fdptr->write_cb
                               && FD_ISSET(fdptr->fd,
I do not understand how "fdptr->use > 1" might ever become true
because as far as I see nothing imcrements it.

Please check if the patch which is shown in comment #0
is really the full patch.
Comment 11 Thomas Biege 2009-11-13 08:24:13 UTC
No need to hurry here. Just wait what will happen.
Apple even wants to have a coordinated release date at the end of january 2010.
Comment 12 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-13 08:44:52 UTC
Should I remove what I already submitted to 11.0, 11.1 and SLE11
and for now only wait what will happen here?

For now I reduced the bug priority to "P3 Medium"
which does of course not mean that I do no longer care
and of couse you can increase it whenever needed.
Comment 13 Thomas Biege 2009-11-13 11:28:35 UTC
Yes, better remove it... especially when you say that the patch is not complete.
Comment 14 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-13 11:54:02 UTC
O.k. - I did right now

  rm -r /work/src/done/11.0/cups \
        /work/src/done/11.1/cups \
Comment 15 Thomas Biege 2009-11-16 14:44:31 UTC
We can add the patch when its final to MaintenanceTracker-27896... but only if the coordinated release date isnt to far in the future.
Comment 16 Thomas Biege 2009-11-18 12:18:49 UTC
Hello Johannes,

Red Hat considers this issue public, so we can fix it together with MaintenanceTracker-27896. I'll ask QA to reject the patchinfos...
Comment 17 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-18 13:36:14 UTC
do you have somewhere the complete patch
or a public accessible URL to it?
In particular I am not allowed to access
If you have somewhere the complete patch,
could you attach it please.
Comment 18 Thomas Biege 2009-11-20 08:01:36 UTC

Comment 19 Thomas Biege 2009-11-20 08:02:19 UTC
needinfo solved
Comment 20 Thomas Biege 2009-11-20 08:04:54 UTC
They told me that the first patches are the final ones. I will attach a tar ball with all the attachments from the first mail. If this does not solve the problem you see, Johannes, let me know.
Comment 21 Johannes Meixner 2009-11-24 10:21:26 UTC
Sorry for causing confusion.
In comment #10 I did only a quick "grep 'fdptr->use'" test
but I didn't look carefully enough because actually
there is already in scheduler/select.c:
#define                 release_fd(f) { \
                          (f)->use --; \
                          if (!(f)->use) free((f));\
#define                 retain_fd(f) (f)->use++
which do increment and decrement the "use" member
so that the current patch looks correct now.

Re-submitted to SLE11/cups

Re-submitted to 11.1/cups

Re-submitted to 11.0/cups

Now "is_maintained -a cups" shows also 11.2 (compare comment #1).
Therefore I would like to submit it now also to 11.2/cups
but I cannot because /work/src/done/11.2/cups is owned by "root"
and therefore "submitpac -X" cannot replace it but "submitpac"
does also no longer submit it as cups-2009-11-24-11:18:38
(in contrast to what "submitpac -h" tells me)
so that for 11.2 I just cannot submit it.

Fixed for all affected distributions which are maintained by me
and where I can submit it.

The fix is still missing for 11.2 and openSUSE:Factory.

Meanwhile I can after my pending submit requests 24137 and 24139
for the other bug #548317 were accepted and comitted

Johannes, the SLES 10 fixes were missing?
Comment 28 Ludwig Nussel 2009-12-10 08:55:05 UTC
cups 1.1 ie sle10 is not listed as affected in the announcement, will cancel patchinfo.
Comment 29 Swamp Workflow Management 2009-12-10 11:52:12 UTC
Update released for: cups, cups-client, cups-client-debuginfo, cups-debuginfo, cups-debugsource, cups-devel, cups-libs, cups-libs-debuginfo
openSUSE 11.2 (debug, i586, x86_64)
Comment 30 Ludwig Nussel 2009-12-10 12:09:05 UTC
JFYI, this bug was considered as planned update. Since there is no other update for sle11 we'd not bother QA just for this issue. I've copied the sle11 submission to sle11sp1 so the fix gets included on sp1. If we have to release a cups update for sle11 itself in the future we can merge back the sp1 version.

Comment 32 Johannes Meixner 2009-12-15 12:53:29 UTC
I got the sources via "osc branch openSUSE:11.2 cups"
therefore I submitted it accordingly also to openSUSE:11.2
via "osc submitreq ..." and not to openSUSE:11.2:Update wherefrom
"osc branch openSUSE:11.2 cups" actually took the sources.

Comment 34 Johannes Meixner 2009-12-17 10:08:19 UTC
For verification and testing by QA
(compare comment #5 and comment #9):

Right now I noticed CUPS STR #3454
which provides a "good reproduction script
that nicely demonstrates the issue":
For the script to work a printer named "PDF" should exist
and be printable over IPP.

I didn't test the script up to now.
Comment 36 Marcus Meissner 2009-12-21 12:55:00 UTC
the select code above does not exist in sles9 (also not in sles10).

so sles9 is not affected.
