Source Disclosure vulnerability in Joomla – the dreaded single quote

We have started receiving reports from Joomla users that our ScanMyServer service is picking up an unknown and undocumented vulnerability on their web site.

The scanner is showing that they have one or more source disclosure/path disclosure vulnerabilities. Since they were using the latest and most up to date version of Joomla their reports looked odd and we started to investigate the matter.

We found out that the vulnerability is “hard” to trigger, as Firefox and Internet Explorer will escape the single quote in a URL to its encoded form, while Chrome will not. So while sending it under Chrome will show something like:
Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'InvalidArgumentException' with message 'Invalid URI detected.' in /home/content/41/9236541/html/libraries/joomla/environment/uri.php:194 Stack trace: #0 /home/content/41/9236541/html/libraries/joomla/application/application.php(248): JURI::getInstance() #1 /home/content/41/9236541/html/includes/application.php(135): JApplication->route() #2 /home/content/41/9236541/html/index.php(36): JSite->route() #3 {main} thrown in /home/content/41/9236541/html/libraries/joomla/environment/uri.php on line 194

The same URL under Firefox and Internet Explorer, will return:
404 - Article not found

Of course, the vulnerability is not in Chrome, but is a real issue caused by Joomla not properly escaping the URL.

The problem has been already spotted in a different section of Joomla, the search option, as can be seen by this post: http://joomlacode.org/gf/../?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=31036&start=0

So the problem isn’t just in the search, it also spans to other sections of the Joomla framework.

We will keep you posted when a fix is provided, or we have a workaround for this issue.

Hardening guide for Postfix 2.x

  1. Make sure the Postfix is running with non-root account:
    ps aux | grep postfix | grep -v '^root'
  2. Change permissions and ownership on the destinations below:
    chmod 755 /etc/postfix
    chmod 644 /etc/postfix/*.cf
    chmod 755 /etc/postfix/postfix-script*
    chmod 755 /var/spool/postfix
    chown root:root /var/log/mail*
    chmod 600 /var/log/mail*
  3. Edit using VI, the file /etc/postfix/main.cf and add make the following changes:
    • Modify the myhostname value to correspond to the external fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the Postfix server, for example:
      myhostname = myserver.example.com
    • Configure network interface addresses that the Postfix service should listen on, for example:
      inet_interfaces = 192.168.1.1
    • Configure Trusted Networks, for example:
      mynetworks = 10.0.0.0/16, 192.168.1.0/24, 127.0.0.1
    • Configure the SMTP server to masquerade outgoing emails as coming from your DNS domain, for example:
      myorigin = example.com
    • Configure the SMTP domain destination, for example:
      mydomain = example.com
    • Configure to which SMTP domains to relay messages to, for example:
      relay_domains = example.com
    • Configure SMTP Greeting Banner:
      smtpd_banner = $myhostname
    • Limit Denial of Service Attacks:
      default_process_limit = 100
      smtpd_client_connection_count_limit = 10
      smtpd_client_connection_rate_limit = 30
      queue_minfree = 20971520
      header_size_limit = 51200
      message_size_limit = 10485760
      smtpd_recipient_limit = 100
  4. Restart the Postfix daemon:
    service postfix restart

Hardening guide for BIND9 (Debian platform)

  1. Make sure the Bind is running with non-root account:
    ps aux | grep bind | grep -v '^root'

    chown -R root:bind /etc/bind
    chown root:bind /etc/bind/named.conf*
    chmod 640 /etc/bind/named.conf*
  3. Edit using VI, the file /etc/bind/named.conf.options and add the following settings under the “Options” section:
    • Add the line below to replace DNS version banner:
      version "Secured DNS server";
      Note: In-order to test, run the command below:
      dig +short @localhost version.bind chaos txt
    • Add the line below to restrict recursive queries to trusted clients:
      allow-recursion { localhost; 192.168.0.0/24; };
      Note 1: Replace 192.168.0.0/24 with the trusted internal segments and subnet mask.
      Note 2: In-order to test, run the command below:
      nslookup www.google.com <BIND_DNS_Server_IP>
    • Add the line below to restrict query origins to trusted clients:
      allow-query { localhost; 192.168.0.0/24; };
      Note: Replace 192.168.0.0/24 with the trusted internal segments and subnet mask.
    • Add the line below to Nameserver ID:
      server-id none;
    • Add the line below to restrict which hosts can perform zone transfers:
      allow-transfer { 192.168.1.1; };
      Note: Replace 192.168.1.1 with the trusted DNS server.
    • Add the line below to restrict the DNS server to listen to specific interfaces:
      listen-on port 53 { 127.0.0.1; 192.168.1.1; };
      Note: Replace 192.168.1.1 with the IP address of the DNS server.
  4. Restart the DNS daemon:
    service bind9 restart
