Description Matthias Weckbecker 2011-03-14 10:50:33 UTC
Adrian, as discussed last week the service-code contains various remote code execution vulnerabilities which allow attackers to execute arbitrary code on build systems with nobody-privileges. 

Ludwig suggested to open a bug for the issue in order to keep it tracked.


Add the following service to your project to get access to a machine w/ internet connectivity:

  <service name="download_url">
    <param name="protocol">ftp</param>
    <param name="host">cpan.myclash.net</param>
    <param name="path">$(uname -a; exit 0)</param>
  <service name="verify_file">
    <param name="file">$(uname -a)</param>
    <param name="verifier">md5</param>
    <param name="checksum">645ea983242177e446d68905cb5ecda5</param>

use CVE-2011-0469
Comment 2 Christian Dengler 2011-03-14 11:28:10 UTC
The first script, I found this issue in, is fixed now (sr 64070).

But the other services, especially with network connection, contain a higher risk.
Comment 3 Adrian Schröter 2011-03-14 11:31:33 UTC
This was only possible when using the "experimental lxc wrapper for additional security ;)". This is fixed now. I will include the fix in next 2.1 release, but I have some serious doubts that anyone else ever used the LXC wrapper (because it is quite tricky to get it working anyway).
Comment 4 Adrian Schröter 2011-03-14 11:33:19 UTC
Comment 2: The problem was not the particular service, it was buggy, but safe. The problem was the lxc wrapper script (only used on server side so far).

no official announcemnet on openbuildservice.org.
