Package        : sssd
Version        : 1.16.3-3.2+deb10u1
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-16838 CVE-2019-3811 CVE-2021-3621 CVE-2022-4254
Debian Bug     : 919051 931432 992710

Multiple vulnerabilities were found in sssd, a set of daemons to manage
access to remote directories and authentication mechanisms, which could
lead to privilege escalation.


    It was discovered that when the Group Policy Objects (GPO) are not
    readable by SSSD due to a too strict permission settings on the
    server side, SSSD allows all authenticated users to login instead of
    denying access.

    A new boolean setting ‘ad_gpo_ignore_unreadable’ (defaulting to
    False) is introduced for environments where attributes in the
    groupPolicyContainer are not readable and changing the permissions
    on the GPO objects is not possible or desirable.  See sssd-ad(5).


    It was discovered that if a user was configured with no home
    directory set, then sssd(8) returns ‘/’ (i.e., the root directory)
    instead of the empty string (meaning no home directory).  This could
    impact services that restrict the user's filesystem access to within
    their home directory through chroot() or similar.


    It was discovered that the sssctl(8) command was vulnerable to shell
    command injection via the ‘logs-fetch’ and ‘cache-expire’

    This flaw could allows an attacker to trick the root user into
    running a specially crafted sssctl(8) command, such as via sudo, in
    order to gain root privileges.


    It was discovered that libsss_certmap failed to sanitize certificate
    data used in LDAP filters.

    PKINIT enables a client to authenticate to the KDC using an X.509
    certificate and the corresponding private key, rather than a
    passphrase or keytab.  Mapping rules are used in order to map the
    certificate presented during a PKINIT authentication request to the
    corresponding principal.  However the mapping filter was found to be
    vulnerable to LDAP filter injection.  As the search result is be
    influenced by values in the certificate, which may be attacker
    controlled, this flaw could allow an attacker to gain control of the
    admin account, leading to full domain takeover.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your sssd packages.
