Changes in 2.1.9

.NET Core 2.1.9 release carries both security and non-security fixes.

  • CVE-2019-0657: .NET Core NuGet Tampering Vulnerability

    A tampering vulnerability exists in NuGet software when executed in a Linux or Mac environment. An attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could run arbitrary code in the context of the current user. If the current user is logged on with administrative user rights, an attacker could take control of the 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. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires that an attacker can login as any other user on that machine. At that point, the attacker will be able to replace or add to files that were created by a NuGet restore operation in the current users account.

    The security update addresses the vulnerability by correcting how NuGet restore creates file permissions for all files extracted to the client machine.
