Discovery Status:

Published

Affected Product(s):

Pimcore GmbH Product: PimCore - Content Management System 3.0 Release Candidate & 2.3.0

Exploitation Technique:

Remote

Severity Level:

High

Technical Details & Description:

A remote sql injection web vulnerability has been discovered in the official Pimcore v3.0 & v2.3.0 Content Management System. The vulnerability allows remote attackers and local privileged user accounts to inject own sql commands to compromise the web-server dbms of pimcore.

The security vulnerability is located in the name value GET method request of the pimcore mysql module. Remote attackers and local privileged user accounts are able to compromise the application service by injection of malicious sql commands. The request method to inject the code is GET and the attack vector is on the application-side of the modules. Remote attackers are able to use the inner application functions of the class module to perform an execution on the application-side unauthorized through the admin acp.

The security risk of the sql vulnerability is estimated as high with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 6.4. Exploitation of the remote sql injection web vulnerability requires no privileged application user account or a low privileged user account without user interaction. Successful exploitation of the sql injection vulnerability results in application and web-service or dbms compromise.

Request Method(s): [+] GET

Vulnerable Module(s): [+] backup/mysql

Vulnerable Parameter(s): [+] name

Proof of Concept (PoC):

The sql injection vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with low privileged application user account and without user interaction. For security demonstration or to reproduce the security vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.

Solution - Fix & Patch:

The vulnerability can be patched by implementation of two prepared statements in the section were the vulnerable name value is in usage. Encode and parse also the qrcode and mysql GET method request to prevent exploitation.

The fix for the backup routine is already in the main trunk and can be reviewed here: https://github.com/pimcore/pimcore/commit/93067d865affa5a0110ae7e9904cbc5ff5868376

Note: The patch will be part of the next version (RC 2) and the final 3.0 release. You can verify it also by downloading the lastest build from pimcore.org/download.

Security Risk:

The security risk of the sql injection web vulnerability in the pimcore content management system is estimated as high. (CVSS 6.4)
