Out-of-bounds read in INTRODUCE2 with client authorization

Reported by: special Owned by:

Severity: Normal Keywords: tor-hs, 025-backport, 026-backport, 2016-bug-retrospective

Reviewer: Sponsor:


An authorized hidden service client can cause an out-of-bounds read on a service with authorization enabled, of at most 15 bytes off the end of a malloc'd segment. The client must have a valid authorization cookie. There is no disclosure of uninitialized memory, except in an info-level log message, but there is a small chance of a crash.

In rend_check_authorization, the descriptor_cookie from the INTRODUCE2 cell is assumed to be REND_DESC_COOKIE_LEN bytes. This is checked earlier when the auth_type is 1 or 2, but not for any other non-zero auth_type.

There is a warning about unknown auth types in rend_service_validate_intro_late, but no error.

Minimal fix:

I haven't actually reproduced this case to test it so far.

I think we should also reject INTRODUCE2 cells with an unknown auth_type, instead of assuming we understand how to use them, but that would be a separate patch.

I've made a bug15823_025 branch to cherry-pick this back to 0.2.5, and merged that forward to master. Marking for possible backport.
