parentcgitrc.5: information on directory traversal and multiple readme files (diff)
ui-summary: Disallow directory traversal
Using the url= query string, it was possible request arbitrary files from the filesystem if the readme for a given page was set to a filesystem file. The following request would return my /etc/passwd file: http://git.zx2c4.com/?url=/somerepo/about/../../../../etc/passwd http://data.zx2c4.com/cgit-directory-traversal.png This fix uses realpath(3) to canonicalize all paths, and then compares the base components. This fix introduces a subtle timing attack, whereby a client can check whether or not strstr is called using timing measurements in order to determine if a given file exists on the filesystem. This fix also does not account for filesystem race conditions (TOCTOU) in resolving symlinks. Signed-off-by: Jason A. Donenfeld <Jason@zx2c4.com>
