# Tuleap - Command Injection in Project Wiki **CVE:** CVE-2017-7981 **CVSSv3:** 9.4 (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:L/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H/E:P/RL:U/RC:C) **Versions affected:** >= 8.3 and <= 220.127.116.11 ## Introduction Tuleap is a Libre suite to plan, track, code and collaborate on software projects. Tuleap helps development teams to build awesome applications, better, faster, easier. ## Background Tuleap uses PHPWiki as a plugin to provide a weak feature for projects. The version of PHPWiki used is 1.3.10. This version contains a command injection vulnerability in the SyntaxHighlighter plugin. Other applications that use PHPWiki similar to Tuleap will also be affected by this issue. The latest version of PHPWiki is 1.5.5 and is no longer vulnerable to this issue. ## Vulnerability Authenticated users, including unprivileged users, with access to a project containing a wiki, can exploit this command injection (CI) vulnerability to gain remote unauthorised access to the server hosting the Tuleap web application. RCE is achieved by entering a SyntaxHighlighter plugin directive in a new wiki page on any wiki available in any project. The SyntaxHighligter plugin in vulnerable versions of PHPWiki passes the `syntax` argument to the `proc_open()` PHP builtin function which spawns a process in the operating system running the web application. The following is an example plugin directie which would cause the `id(1)` command to be executed on a Linux server running an affected version of Tuleap. ``` <?plugin SyntaxHighlighter syntax="c;id" code to be highlighted ?> ``` The result of the command execution can be seen in the image below. ![command execution](2017.04.tuleap-auth-ci.command-exec.png) ## Versions Affected This vulnerability has existed in the version of PHPWiki used by the Tuleap project since at least version 8.3 through to 18.104.22.168. ## References https://github.com/xdrr/vulnerability-research/blob/master/webapp/tuleap/2017.04.tuleap-auth-ci.md https://tuleap.net/plugins/tracker/?aid=10159 ## Credit This vulnerability was discovered by Ben N (firstname.lastname@example.org) 19 April 2017.
