CVE-2019-10149:Exim 中發現重大遠端指令執行弱點

Researchers discover critical remote command execution vulnerability in older versions of Exim. Over 4.1 million systems are potentially vulnerable to local exploitation and remote exploitation is possible in non-default configurations.

背景說明

On June 3, maintainers of the mail transfer agent (MTA) known as Exim acknowledged on the open source security (OSS) mailing list the existence of a critical vulnerability in Exim versions 4.87 through 4.91 reported to them by security researchers at Qualys. On June 5, the security researchers published an abridged advisory regarding their discovery on the same mailing list.

Update 6/13: Security researchers are now observing active exploitation attempts of this vulnerability in the wild.

分析

CVE-2019-10149 is a remote command execution vulnerability introduced in Exim version 4.87 which was released on April 6, 2016. In default configurations, a local attacker is capable of exploiting this vulnerability to execute commands as the “root” user “instantly” by sending mail to a specially crafted mail address on localhost that will be interpreted by the expand_string function within the deliver_message() function. Remote exploitation under the default configuration is possible, but considered to be unreliable, as an attacker would need to maintain connection to a vulnerable server for 7 days.

In certain non-default configurations, remote exploitation is possible. For instance, if the requirement for ‘verify = recipient’ ACL was removed from the the default configuration file (src/configure.default), uncommenting out the ‘local_part_suffix = +* : -*’ under the userforward router in the default configuration, or if Exim was “configured to relay mail to a remote domain, as a secondary MX (Mail eXchange).”

概念驗證

At the time this blog was published, no proof-of-concept (PoC) was available for this vulnerability. However, further details about how to exploit the vulnerability were shared on June 6 and have been used to launch attacks, as the above update indicates. 

Impact Assessment

Exim is widely distributed. At the time of publication, Shodan search results show over 4.1 million systems running versions of Exim that are considered vulnerable (4.87-4.91), while 475,591 are running the latest patched version (4.92). In other words, nearly 90% of systems with Exim are vulnerable to local exploitation and potentially to remote exploitation based on the configuration.

Shodan search results show over 4.1 million systems running versions of Exim that are considered vulnerable (4.87-4.91)

Total Results by Version Number

  • Exim 4.87: 206,024
  • Exim 4.88: 24,608
  • Exim 4.89: 206,571
  • Exim 4.90: 5,480
  • Exim 4.91: 3,738,863
  • Exim 4.92: 475,591

解決方法

While this vulnerability was reported via the exim-security mailing list on May 27, 2019, it appears that the vulnerability was unknowingly patched in Exim version 4.92.

Exim maintainers announced that their fix for CVE-2019-10149 is now public and that it can be backported to all affected versions from 4.87 through 4.91. They note that older releases are “considered to be outdated” and are therefore no longer supported.
