Subject [jira] Created: (CONTINUUM-1412) File Inclusion Vulnerability
Date Fri, 24 Aug 2007 16:14:48 GMT
File Inclusion Vulnerability

                 Key: CONTINUUM-1412
             Project: Continuum
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Security
    Affects Versions: 1.1-beta-2
         Environment: Java version: 1.5.0_10
OS name: "linux" version: "" arch: "i386"
            Reporter: Tom Cort
            Priority: Critical
         Attachments: continuum.JPG

The value of the userDirectory variable used when calling workingCopy.action is not filtered
properly. This gives anyone who can access workingCopy.action the ability to read any file
on the file system with the permissions that jetty is running as.

For example, let's say we have continuum installed in /usr/local/continuum. Say we have a
project named build-tools with a projectId of 10. Using the following URL, I can display the
contents of /proc/version (see attached screenshot).

This is really bad if the user is running continuum as root because it gives the attacker
access to every file on the file system.
