Vigil@nce: Trend Micro, bypassing via RAR, CAB and ZIP

May 2009 by Vigil@nce

SYNTHESIS OF THE VULNERABILITY

An attacker can create a RAR, CAB or ZIP archive containing a virus which is not detected by Trend Micro.

Severity: 2/4

Consequences: data flow

Provenance: document

Means of attack: no proof of concept, no attack

Ability of attacker: expert (4/4)

Confidence: confirmed by the editor (5/5)

Diffusion of the vulnerable configuration: high (3/3)

Number of vulnerabilities in this bulletin: 3

Creation date: 30/04/2009

IMPACTED PRODUCTS

- Trend Micro Internet Security
- Trend Micro InterScan Messaging Security Suite
- Trend Micro InterScan Web Security Suite
- Trend Micro ScanMail
- Trend Micro ServerProtect

DESCRIPTION OF THE VULNERABILITY

Trend Micro products detect viruses contained in RAR, CAB and ZIP archives.

However, an attacker can create a slightly malformed archive, which can still be opened by Unrar/Unzip tools, but which cannot be opened by the antivirus.

Depending on Trend Micro product, these archives are handled in three ways:

OfficeScan and ServerProtect are vulnerable when Unrar/Unzip extracts the file on the desktop computer. These products are thus vulnerable when installed on a scan server. [grav:2/4]

InterScan Web Security Suite and InterScan Messaging Security quarantine the file by default. These products are vulnerable if the administrator changed the default configuration. [grav:2/4]

ScanMail does not indicate that the unscanned archive potentially contains a virus. This product is vulnerable in its default configuration. [grav:2/4]

An attacker can therefore create a RAR, CAB or ZIP archive containing a virus which is not detected by Trend Micro.
