reports.cgi doesn't detect invalid dataset name


(Bugzilla :: Reporting/Charting, defect)

Not set



Bugzilla 2.16


(Reporter: wicked, Assigned: wicked)


(Whiteboard: [fixed in 2.16.6] [fixed in 2.18rc1])

There is code in reports.cgi chart_image_name sub that supposedly would yell if
an invalid dataset name is specified. Unfortunately the code uses broken regexp
so it won't detect the condition correctly.
This new regexp will now correctly detect if there are other than letters,
numbers or :-characters in any of the dataset names.

Let's hold this for a security advisory.

This can be exploited as an arbitrary filename path or XSS.

Just checked...   2.16 is affected by this, too, so we need a patch for 2.16
Whiteboard: [wanted for 2.16.6] [ready for 2.18rc1]
hmmm, okay, I can't actually find a way to actually exploit this.  Chart::Base
dies with "invalid symbol reference" if you try to pass in a dataset name that
contains a /, so that eliminates pathname garbage.  And it doesn't appear to
actually display the datasets that it can't actually find except as part of the
image filename, which obviously remains escaped somehow...


Anyone else have any ananysis they can provide?  We should probably still fix
this in 2.16, but I'm starting to think it's not an exploitable security hole now...
Tested and it seems same patch will apply to tip of 2.16 branch flawlessly.

While attachment 144032 [details] [diff] [review] is right for 2.16, this is de-bitrotted to apply
smoothly  for 2.18
