[ASA-202012-5] ant: arbitrary code execution
Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-202012-5 ========================================= Severity: Medium Date : 2020-12-05 CVE-ID : CVE-2020-11979 Package : ant Type : arbitrary code execution Remote : No Link : Summary ======= The package ant before version 1.10.9-1 is vulnerable to arbitrary code execution. Resolution ========== Upgrade to 1.10.9-1. # pacman -Syu "ant>=1.10.9-1" The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.10.9. Workaround ========== The issue can be mitigated by making Ant use a directory that is only readable and writable by the current user. Description =========== As mitigation for CVE-2020-1945 Apache Ant 1.10.8 changed the permissions of temporary files it created so that only the current user was allowed to access them. Unfortunately the fixcrlf task deleted the temporary file and created a new one without said protection, effectively nullifying the effort. This would still allow an attacker to inject modified source files into the build process. Impact ====== A local attacker might be able to execute arbitrary code by injecting modified source files into the build process at the exact right moment. References ==========
