A command injection flaw was found in the NetworkManager integration script included in the DHCP client packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. A malicious DHCP server, or an attacker on the local network able to spoof DHCP responses, could use this flaw to execute arbitrary commands with root privileges on systems using NetworkManager and configured to obtain network configuration using the DHCP protocol.

Description Adam Mariš 2018-04-16 13:57:43 UTC
A command injection vulnerability was found in 11-dhclient script provided by dhcp-client located in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/11-dhclient. Attacker in local network who is able to spoof DHCP responses or malicious DHCP server can execute arbitrary commands run with root privileges on client system by exploiting this vulnerability.

The script and package name slightly differs between Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora versions:

- In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, the script is included in the dhclient package and is located in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/10-dhclient

- In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, the script is included in the dhclient package and is located in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/11-dhclient

- In the current Fedora versions, the script is included in the dhcp-client package and is located in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/11-dhclient

The DHCP client package was renamed from dhclient to dhcp-client in Fedora 22:

Comment 47 Doran Moppert 2018-05-16 10:09:55 UTC
Statement:

Red Hat has been made aware of a vulnerability affecting the DHCP client packages as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7. This vulnerability CVE-2018-1111 was rated as having a security impact of Critical. A malicious DHCP server, or an attacker on the local network able to spoof DHCP responses, could use this flaw to execute arbitrary commands with root privileges on systems using NetworkManager and configured to obtain network configuration using the DHCP protocol.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 4.1 includes the vulnerable components, but the default configuration is not impacted because NetworkManager is turned off in the Management Appliance, and not used in conjunction with DHCP in the Hypervisor. Customers can still obtain the updated packages from Red Hat Enterprise Linux channels using `yum update`, or upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 4.2, which includes the fixed packages.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.6 is not vulnerable as it does not use DHCP.

Comment 49 Tomas Hoger 2018-05-17 08:04:13 UTC
ISC, upstream for the ISC DHCP client and server implementation that is used in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, issued a statement confirming that this issue does not affect upstream packages, as the flaw is in the additional NetworkManager integration script that was written for use in Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux:
