K21350967: OpenSSH vulnerability CVE-2019-6111

Original Publication Date: 18 Jan, 2019
Latest   Publication Date: 06 Jan, 2021

Security Advisory Description

An issue was discovered in OpenSSH 7.9. Due to the scp implementation being
derived from 1983 rcp, the server chooses which files/directories are sent to
the client. However, the scp client only performs cursory validation of the
object name returned (only directory traversal attacks are prevented). A
malicious scp server (or Man-in-The-Middle attacker) can overwrite arbitrary
files in the scp client target directory. If recursive operation (-r) is
performed, the server can manipulate subdirectories as well (for example, to
overwrite the .ssh/authorized_keys file). (CVE-2019-6111)

Impact

Improper validation of object names allows a malicious server to overwrite
files through the OpenSSH SCP client.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 757604 (BIG-IP), ID 757604-8 (BIG-IQ),
ID 757604-9 (Enterprise Manager), ID 757604-10 (F5 iWorkflow), and CPF-25054
and CPF-25055 (Traffix) to this vulnerability. Additionally, BIG-IP iHealth may
list Heuristic H21350967 on the Diagnostics > Identified > Medium page.

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Fixes introduced in column. If the table lists only an older version
than what you are currently running, or does not list a non-vulnerable version,
then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

Mitigation

There is no mitigation for a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack.

You can mitigate the vulnerability from a malicious server by verifying the
host key fingerprint when connecting to systems with the SCP client.
