#VU32874 Input validation error in WebKitGTK+ and WPE WebKit


Published: 2020-07-14 | Updated: 2020-08-02

Vulnerability identifier: #VU32874

Vulnerability risk: High

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2020-13753

CWE-ID: CWE-20

Exploitation vector: Network

Exploit availability: No

Vulnerable software:
WebKitGTK+
Server applications / Frameworks for developing and running applications
WPE WebKit
Server applications / Frameworks for developing and running applications

Vendor: WebKitGTK
WPE WebKit

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote non-authenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code.

The bubblewrap sandbox of WebKitGTK and WPE WebKit, prior to 2.28.3, failed to properly block access to CLONE_NEWUSER and the TIOCSTI ioctl. CLONE_NEWUSER could potentially be used to confuse xdg-desktop-portal, which allows access outside the sandbox. TIOCSTI can be used to directly execute commands outside the sandbox by writing to the controlling terminal's input buffer, similar to CVE-2017-5226.

Mitigation
Install update from vendor's website.

Vulnerable software versions

WebKitGTK+: 2.28.0 - 2.28.2

WPE WebKit: 2.28.0 - 2.28.2
