Opentext Documentum Content Server Privilege Escalation

Opentext Documentum Content Server Privilege Escalation
Posted Oct 14, 2017
Authored by Andrey B. Panfilov

Opentext Documentum Content Server (formerly known as EMC Documentum Content Server) contains a design gap that allows any authenticated user the ability to replace content of security-sensitive dmr_content objects (for example, dmr_content related to dm_method objects) and gain superuser privileges.

#!/usr/bin/env python

# Opentext Documentum Content Server (formerly known as EMC Documentum Content Server)
# contains following design gap, which allows authenticated user to gain privileges
# of superuser:
#
# Content Server stores information about uploaded files in dmr_content objects,
# which are queryable and "editable" (before release 7.2P02 any authenticated user
# was able to edit dmr_content objects, now any authenticated user may delete
# dmr_content object and them create new one with the old identifier) by
# authenticated users, this allows any authenticated user to "modify" security-sensitive
# dmr_content objects (for example, dmr_content related to dm_method objects)
# and gain superuser privileges
#
# The PoC below demonstrates this vulnerability:
