Subject [jira] [Created] (YARN-9718) Yarn REST API, services endpoint remote command ejection
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2019 17:33:00 GMT
Eric Yang created YARN-9718:

             Summary: Yarn REST API, services endpoint remote command ejection
                 Key: YARN-9718
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-9718
             Project: Hadoop YARN
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Eric Yang

Email from Oskars Vegeris:

During internal infrastructure testing it was discovered that the Hadoop Yarn REST endpoint
/app/v1/services contains a command injection vulnerability.
The services endpoint's normal use-case is for launching containers (e.g. Docker images/apps),
however by providing an argument with special shell characters it is possible to execute arbitrary
commands on the Host server - this would allow to escalate privileges and access. 
The command injection is possible in the parameter for JVM options - "yarn.service.am.java.opts".
It's possible to enter arbitrary shell commands by using sub-shell syntax `cmd` or $(cmd).
No shell character filtering is performed. 
The "launch_command" which needs to be provided is meant for the container and if it's not
being run in privileged mode or with special options, host OS should not be accessible.
I've attached a minimal request sample with an injected 'ping' command. The endpoint can also
be found via UI @ [http://yarn-resource-manager:8088/ui2/#/yarn-services]
If no auth, or "simple auth" (username) is enabled, commands can be executed on the host OS.
I know commands can also be ran by the "new-application" feature, however this is clearly
not meant to be a way to touch the host OS.
