FreePBX (All Versions) RCE

Hash: SHA1

We would like to announce that a significant security vulnerability has
been discovered in all current versions of FreePBX.

A CVE has been requested from Mitre, but has yet to be provided.

Further details as they come to hand will be available from
http://community.freepbx.org/t/critical-freepbx-rce-vulnerability-all-versions/24536
which should be treated as the authoritative source of nformation. The CVE,
when provided, will be linked from there.

There is also futher information available there about how to detect and
remove any potential intrusion to your FreePBX machine.

Summary:
A remote attacker can bypass authentication and create a false FreePBX
Administrator account, which will then let them perform any action on a
FreePBX system as the FreePBX user (which is often ‘asterisk’ or ‘apache’).

This vulnerability is caused by the improper use of ‘unserialize’ in a
legacy package that has been deprecated in the latest versions of FreePBX,
but is still in common use.

An emergency security release has been pushed to resolve this for all
supported versions (12, 2.11, and 2.10) as well as an emergency backport to
2.9, which is outside of our normal supported environment.

If you are running a version prior to 2.9, and are unable to upgrade, the
patch is available below.

The fixed module versions are:
2.9: fw_ari v2.9.0.9
2.10: fw_ari v2.11.1.5
2.11: fw_ari v2.11.1.5 (not a typo, it’s the same module version)

In FreePBX 12 ARI is deprecated in favour of the new User Control Panel,
but ARI is available as a legacy package if required, as version 12.0.5.

All versions lower than this are vulnerable and should be removed if unable
to be upgraded.

Note that disabling them will NOT resolve this issue, the files must be
removed or patched.

This issue was discovered by a signature verification failure on a FreePBX
12 system, and the attack appeared to be scripted. As such, this attack
should be considered to be ‘in the wild’, and upgrades should be actioned
with the utmost urgency.

FreePBX and Schmooze takes security very seriously, and treat all security
issues as a critical event. We urge anyone who has discovered a security
vulnerability in FreePBX, or its associated projects, to email
security () freepbx org for an immediate response.

We also continue our recommendation that your FreePBX machines are
explicitly firewalled from public access from the internet.

Additional Details:

Overall CVSS Score - 6

CVSS Base Score - 9.4
Impact Subscore - 9.2
Exploitability Subscore - 10
