Vulnerability in viewsrc.cgi



    Overview

viewsrc.cgi v2.0 is a source-code viewing CGI script available from
http://www.mimanet.com/scripts.  A vulnerability exists which
allows a remote user to view any file on the server.



    Details

The following URL demonstrates the problem:

    http://localhost/cgi-bin/viewsrc.cgi?
                         loc=../[any file outside restricted directory]



    Solution

Apply the following patch to viewsrc.cgi:

53a54,56
$FORM{'loc'} =~ s/\.\.//g;
$FORM{'loc'} =~ s/\\//g;
$FORM{'loc'} =~ s/\///g;
65c68
<          open (INHTML, "$predo") or die &err_loc;
---
         open (INHTML, "<$predo") or die &err_loc;

This patch removes any '..', '/', or '\'s present in the $FORM{'loc'}
variable.  It also makes the open() command safer by using the '<'
read-only specifier.



    Vendor Status

MIMAnet was contacted via <webmaster () mimanet com> on
Tuesday, May 1, 2001.  Roberto R. Morelli <morelli () altair7 com>
quickly replied and stated that the problem was verified and an
official fix would be released.  Twenty two days have passed, and nothing
has been done.
