Backtrack Linux 1.7.2 released, patched security hole

Backtrack Linux 1.7.2 released, patched security hole

Privilege escalation vulnerability (CVE-2012-2095) was found by a student in Wireless Interface Connection Daemon (WICD) Backtrack components. The discovery has been made public on InfoSec's website and is available here. The vulnerability affects the latest version - Backtrack 5 R2.

"Improper sanitization of the inputs in the WICD's DBUS interfaces allows an attacker to (semi)arbitrarily write configuration options in WICD's 'wireless-settings.conf' file, including but not limited to defining scripts (executables actually) to execute upon various internal events (for instance upon connecting to a wireless network)," the researcher explained.

"These scripts execute as the root user, this leads to arbitrary code/command execution by an attacker with access to the WICD DBUS interface as the root user."

The student himself and the InfoSec team released a PoC code and notified the vendor. As for yesterday a new release of Backtrack Linux 1.7.2 is available. Announcement of the release is here.
