Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2854) Limit remote streaming to update handlers
Date Thu, 27 Oct 2011 16:02:32 GMT

David Smiley commented on SOLR-2854:
------------------------------------

Regarding future steps to take to make Solr more secure with regards to remote streaming:
 Personally, I think that, by default, the only handlers that should be able to use this are
/update/ registered handlers. That makes Solr easier to secure and is also the biggest use
case for this feature.  I'd like it to be clearer in solrconfig.xml exactly which handlers
can use remote streaming. Presently, you have to have internal knowledge to know that /analysis/document
will use it -- and that's not cool from a security perspective.  You suggested  limiting specific
URLs or files or files vs URLs but I don't think that is important.

I'm not sure if there is even any use of using it on a /select, but even if there is, it's
an unintended security risk.  Observe this URL that is roughly the equivalent of an SQL injection
attack:
> http://localhost:8983/solr/select?q=*:*&indent=on&wt=ruby&rows=2&stream.url=http%3A%2F%2Flocalhost%3A8983%2Fsolr%2Fupdate%3Fcommit%3Dtruetream.body%3D%3Cdelete%3E%3Cquery%3E*%3A*%3C%2Fquery%3E%3C%2Fdelete%3E
> Yep; that's right -- this *search* deletes all the data in your Solr instance! If you
blocked off access to /update* based on IP then that isn't good enough.
