Microsoft Security Bulletin MS11-025 - Important

Vulnerability in Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library Could Allow Remote Code Execution

Published: April 12, 2011 | Updated: March 13, 2012

Version: 4.3

General Information

Executive Summary

This security update resolves a publicly disclosed vulnerability in certain applications built using the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library. The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if a user opens a legitimate file associated with such an affected application, and the file is located in the same network folder as a specially crafted library file. For an attack to be successful, a user must visit an untrusted remote file system location or WebDAV share and open a document from this location that is then loaded by the affected application.

This security update is rated Important for all supported editions of Microsoft Visual Studio and Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package. For more information, see the subsection, Affected and Non-Affected Software, in this section.

The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting the manner in which applications built using MFC load external libraries. For more information about the vulnerability, see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) subsection for the specific vulnerability entry under the next section, Vulnerability Information.

Where are the file information details? 
Refer to the reference tables in the Security Update Deployment section for the location of the file information details.

Will I be offered this update even if I have no suitable attack vectors on my system? 
This update will be offered to all systems running software as outlined in the Affected Software section. In the case where a system has no MFC applications currently installed but does have the vulnerable Visual Studio or Visual C++ runtimes installed, Microsoft recommends that users install this update as a defense-in-depth measure, in case of an attack vector being introduced or becoming known at a later time.

Users with no MFC applications and none of the software listed in the Affected Software section installed will not be offered the update and do not need to take any action.

Are there any Microsoft applications that can be used as an attack vector? 
Microsoft has carefully researched all applications but found no Microsoft applications that could be successfully used as an attack vector.

Is Microsoft aware of any third-party MFC applications that can be used as an attack vector? 
Yes. Microsoft is aware of one third-party application that can be used as an attack vector. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability using this third-party attack vector would require a user to open a specially crafted file with the MFC application, then double-click a folder inside the MFC application.

I have written an application using Microsoft Foundation Classes. Can my application be used as an attack vector?
Your application may be an attack vector if all of the following conditions are true:

  • Your application makes use of the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library
  • Your application allows the loading of dynamic link libraries from untrusted locations, such as WebDAV shares

Note Microsoft recommends that MFC applications dynamically link to MFC. If your application statically links to a vulnerable version of MFC, we highly recommend that you update your application to dynamically link to MFC. Otherwise, you will be required to rebuild your application every time a security update for MFC is released.

What is the difference between the Visual C++ Redistributable packages and the other Visual Studio updates? 
The Visual C++ Redistributable packages are full versions of this product that can be redistributed by anyone with their applications. Developers who need to deliver the Visual C++ Redistributable should pick up these packages and bundle them or chain them into their setups. The other Visual Studio updates are available for developers who have previously installed an older version of the Visual C++ Redistributable product or have installed the Visual Studio product. These update packages are offered to developers through Microsoft Update only and will be applicable only if an earlier version of the Visual C++ Redistributable or Visual Studio is present.

I am a third-party application developer and I use Visual C++. How do I update my application? 
The method for updating applications developed with Visual C++ depends on how you link to the MFC libraries and whether or not you distribute your applications with the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package:

  • Developers whose applications statically link to the MFC libraries need to apply the update offered in this bulletin, recompile the application, and redeliver the application to end users (or release an update for the application).
  • Developers whose applications dynamically link to the MFC libraries, but who do not distribute Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package with their application, need to apply the update offered in this bulletin, recompile their application, and redeliver the application to end users (or release an update for the application).
  • Developers whose applications dynamically link to the MFC libraries and who distribute Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package with the application do not need to recompile their applications, as end users will receive the update offered in this bulletin directly through automatic updating. All customers with the affected software should update their systems to be protected from the vulnerability described in this bulletin.

Is this update related to Microsoft Security Advisory 2269637? 
Yes, the vulnerability addressed by this update is related to the class of vulnerabilities, described in Microsoft Security Advisory 2269637, that affects how applications load external libraries. This security update addresses a particular instance of this type of vulnerability.

I am using an older release of the software discussed in this security bulletin. What should I do? 
The affected software listed in this bulletin have been tested to determine which releases are affected. Other releases are past their support life cycle. For more information about the product lifecycle, visit the Microsoft Support Lifecycle Web site.

It should be a priority for customers who have older releases of the software to migrate to supported releases to prevent potential exposure to vulnerabilities. To determine the support lifecycle for your software release, see Select a Product for Lifecycle Information.

A remote code execution vulnerability exists in the way that certain applications built Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) handle the loading of DLL files. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

To view this vulnerability as a standard entry in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures list, see CVE-2010-3190.

Mitigating Factors for MFC Insecure Library Loading Vulnerability - CVE-2010-3190

Mitigation refers to a setting, common configuration, or general best-practice, existing in a default state, that could reduce the severity of exploitation of a vulnerability. The following mitigating factors may be helpful in your situation:

  • For an attack to be successful, a user must visit an untrusted remote file system location or WebDAV share and open a file associated with an affected application built using MFC.
  • The file sharing protocol, Server Message Block (SMB), is often disabled on the perimeter firewall. This limits the potential attack vectors for this vulnerability.

Workarounds for MFC Insecure Library Loading Vulnerability - CVE-2010-3190

Workaround refers to a setting or configuration change that does not correct the underlying vulnerability but would help block known attack vectors before you apply the update. Microsoft has tested the following workarounds and states in the discussion whether a workaround reduces functionality:

  • Disable loading of libraries from WebDAV and remote network shares

    Note See Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2264107 to deploy a workaround tool that allows customers to disable the loading of libraries from remote network or WebDAV shares. This tool can be configured to disallow insecure loading on a per-application or a global system basis.

    Customers who are informed by their vendor of an application being vulnerable can use this tool to help protect against attempts to exploit this issue.

    Note See Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2264107 to use the automated Microsoft Fix it solution to deploy the registry key to block loading of libraries for SMB and WebDAV shares. Note that this Fix it solution does require you to install the workaround tool also described in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 2264107 first. This Fix it solution only deploys the registry key and requires the workaround tool in order to be effective. We recommend that administrators review the KB article closely prior to deploying this Fix it solution.

  • Disable the WebClient service

    Disabling the WebClient service helps protect affected systems from attempts to exploit this vulnerability by blocking the most likely remote attack vector through the Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) client service. After applying this workaround it is still possible for remote attackers who successfully exploit this vulnerability to cause the system to run programs located on the targeted user's computer or the Local Area Network (LAN), but users will be prompted for confirmation before opening arbitrary programs from the Internet.

    To disable the WebClient Service, perform the following steps:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type Services.msc and then click OK.
    2. Right-click WebClient service and select Properties.
    3. Change the Startup type to Disabled. If the service is running, click Stop.
    4. Click OK and exit the management application.

    Impact of workaround. When the WebClient service is disabled, Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) requests are not transmitted. In addition, any services that explicitly depend on the Web Client service will not start, and an error message will be logged in the System log. For example, WebDAV shares will be inaccessible from the client computer.

    How to undo the workaround.

    To re-enable the WebClient Service, perform the following steps:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type Services.msc and then click OK.
    2. Right-click WebClient service and select Properties.
    3. Change the Startup type to Automatic. If the service is not running, click Start.
    4. Click OK and exit the management application.
  • Block TCP ports 139 and 445 at the firewall

    These ports are used to initiate a connection with the affected component. Blocking TCP ports 139 and 445 at the firewall will help protect systems that are behind that firewall from attempts to exploit this vulnerability. Microsoft recommends that you block all unsolicited inbound communication from the Internet to help prevent attacks that may use other ports. For more information about ports, see the TechNet article, TCP and UDP Port Assignments.

    Impact of workaround. Several Windows services use the affected ports. Blocking connectivity to the ports may cause various applications or services to not function. Some of the applications or services that could be impacted are listed below:

    • Applications that use SMB (CIFS)
    • Applications that use mailslots or named pipes (RPC over SMB)
    • Server (File and Print Sharing)
    • Group Policy
    • Net Logon
    • Distributed File System (DFS)
    • Terminal Server Licensing
    • Print Spooler
    • Computer Browser
    • Remote Procedure Call Locator
    • Fax Service
    • Indexing Service
    • Performance Logs and Alerts
    • Systems Management Server
    • License Logging Service

    How to undo the workaround. Unblock TCP ports 139 and 445 at the firewall. For more information about ports, see TCP and UDP Port Assignments.

FAQ for MFC Insecure Library Loading Vulnerability - CVE-2010-3190

What is the scope of the vulnerability? 
This is a remote code execution vulnerability. An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could take complete control of an affected system. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights.

What causes the vulnerability? 
The vulnerability is caused when applications built using MFC incorrectly restrict the path used for loading external libraries.

What is the Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library? 
The Microsoft Foundation Class (MFC) Library is an application framework for programming in Microsoft Windows. Written in C++, MFC provides much of the code necessary for performing standard operations such as managing windows, menus, and dialog boxes; performing basic input/output; and storing collections of data objects.

What might an attacker use the vulnerability to do? 
An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could run arbitrary code as the logged-on user. An attacker could then install programs; view, change, or delete data; or create new accounts with full user rights. If a user is logged-on with administrative user rights, an attacker could take complete control of the affected system. Users whose accounts are configured to have fewer user rights on the system could be less impacted than users who operate with administrative user rights.

How could an attacker exploit the vulnerability? 
An attacker could convince a user to open a legitimate file associated with the application built using MFC that is located in the same network directory as a specially crafted dynamic link library (DLL) file. Then, while opening the file, the affected application could attempt to load the DLL file and execute any code it contained.

In an e-mail attack scenario, an attacker could exploit the vulnerability by sending a legitimate file associated with the application built using MFC to a user, and convincing the user to place the attachment into a directory containing a specially crafted DLL file and to open the file. Then, when opening the file, the affected application could attempt to load the DLL and execute any code it contained.

In a network scenario, an attacker could place a legitimate file associated with the application built using MFC and a specially crafted DLL in a UNC or WebDAV location and then convince the user to open the file.

What systems are primarily at risk from the vulnerability? 
This vulnerability mainly affects workstations where users may be expected to open attachments from untrusted network locations. Servers could also be at risk if administrators allow users to log on to servers and to run programs. However, best practices strongly discourage allowing this.

What does the update do? 
The update addresses this vulnerability by correcting the manner in which applications built using MFC load external libraries.

Is this vulnerability related to Microsoft Security Advisory 2269637? 
Yes, the vulnerability addressed by this update is related to the class of vulnerabilities, described in Microsoft Security Advisory 2269637, that affects how applications load external libraries. This security update addresses a particular instance of this type of vulnerability.

Deployment Information

Installing the Update

You can install the update from the appropriate download link in the Affected and Non-Affected Software section. If you installed your application from a server location, the server administrator must instead update the server location with the administrative update and deploy that update to your system. For more information about Administrative Installation Points, refer to the Office Administrative Installation Point information in the Detection and Deployment Tools and Guidance subsection.

This security update requires that Windows Installer 2.0 or later be installed on the system. All supported versions of Windows include Windows Installer 2.0 or a later version.

Verifying that the Update Has Been Applied

  • Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer

    To verify that a security update has been applied to an affected system, you may be able to use the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) tool. See the “Microsoft baseline Security Analyzer” heading under the section, Microsoft Detection and Deployment Tools and Guidance.

  • File Version Verification

    Note Because there are several versions and editions of Microsoft Windows, the following steps may be different on your system. If they are, see your product documentation to complete these steps.

    1. Click Start, and then click Search.

    2. In the Search Results pane, click All files and folders under Search Companion.

    3. In the All or part of the file name box, type a file name from the appropriate file information table, and then click Search.

    4. In the list of files, right-click a file name from the appropriate file information table, and then click Properties.

    Note Depending on the edition of the operating system, or the programs that are installed on your system, some of the files that are listed in the file information table may not be installed.

    5. On the Version tab, determine the version of the file that is installed on your system by comparing it to the version that is documented in the appropriate file information table.

    Note Attributes other than the file version may change during installation. Comparing other file attributes to the information in the file information table is not a supported method of verifying that the update has been applied. Also, in certain cases, files may be renamed during installation. If the file or version information is not present, use one of the other available methods to verify update installation.
