Subject [jira] (MSHARED-297) Commandline class shell injection vulnerabilities
Date Wed, 23 Oct 2013 20:49:52 GMT
Charles Duffy created MSHARED-297:

             Summary: Commandline class shell injection vulnerabilities
                 Key: MSHARED-297
             Project: Maven Shared Components
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Charles Duffy
         Attachments: use-no-shell-r2.patch

The Commandline class can emit double-quoted strings without proper escaping, allowing shell
injection attacks.

The BourneShell class should unconditionally single-quote emitted strings (including the name
of the command itself being quoted), with {{'"'"'}} used for embedded single quotes, for maximum
safety across shells implementing a superset of POSIX quoting rules.

An appropriate fix has been built and applied against PLXUTILS; that patch is submitted here
in the hope that it will be useful, though it is not expected to apply to the maven-shared-utils
codebase without modification.

See PLXUTILS-161 for history/discussion.
