  <title>Shorewall: Security policy bypass</title>
  <synopsis>

    filtering to bypass all other security rules.

  <affected>
    <package name="net-firewall/shorewall" auto="yes" arch="*">
      <unaffected range="ge">2.4.2</unaffected>

  <background>
    <p>
    Shorewall is a high level tool for configuring Netfilter, the firewall
    facility included in the Linux Kernel.
    </p>
  </background>
  <description>
    <p>
    Shorewall fails to enforce security policies if configured with
    "MACLIST_DISPOSITION" set to "ACCEPT" or "MACLIST_TTL" set to a value
    greater or equal to 0.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="low">
    <p>
    A client authenticated by MAC address filtering could bypass all
    security policies, possibly allowing him to gain access to restricted
    services. The default installation has MACLIST_DISPOSITION=REJECT and
    MACLIST_TTL=(blank) (equivalent to 0). This can be checked by looking
    at the settings in /etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    Set "MACLIST_TTL" to "0" and "MACLIST_DISPOSITION" to "REJECT" in the
    Shorewall configuration file (usually /etc/shorewall/shorewall.conf).
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Shorewall users should upgrade to the latest available version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose net-firewall/shorewall</code>
  </resolution>
