Date: Thu, 20 Aug 2020 11:15:41 -0400 From: Richard Hipp <drh@...ite.org> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Fossil-SCM patch fixes RCE in all historic versions Researcher Max Justicz discovered a potential RCE and other vulnerabilities in the Fossil distributed version control system. (https://fossil-scm.org/) Patches to address these issues are now available for download. Package maintainers who bundle Fossil are encouraged to update their packages without unnecessary delay. All vulnerabilities require a pre-existing trust relationship between the victim and the attacker. In other words, the attacker must be either a site administrator, or someone with check-in privileges on the project. There are no known vulnerabilities to servers from web users entering tickets or forum messages or wiki or doing other on-line operations. The attacks require the ability to push, at least, and the most serious RCE problem requires the ability to configure a server in malicious ways. If you are unable to upgrade to one of the patched versions of Fossil, then you are encouraged at least to know well the people from whom you clone or pull. Precompiled binaries and source tarballs for the patched versions of Fossil are available on the Fossil download page (http://fossil-scm.org/fossil/uv/download.html). However, the dozens of check-ins that went into generating these patches, and the tickets that describe the specifics of the vulnerabilities, will be embargoed for a few days. See the thread on the Fossil Forum (https://fossil-scm.org/forum/info/a05ae3ce7760daf6) for follow up information or to communicate directly with the Fossil developers. -- D.
