Laravel Ignition RCE (CVE-2021-3129)
cve-2021 | Level: Easy | Total Lab Runs: 0 | Premium Lab |
What is Laravel?
Laravel is a PHP web application framework with expressive, elegant syntax, aiming to make development an enjoyable, creative experience. It attempts to take the pain out of development by easing common tasks used in the majority of web projects, such as authentication, routing, sessions, and caching.
What is Laravel Ignition?
Ignition is a beautiful and customizable error page for Laravel applications. It is the default error page for new Laravel applications. It also allows to publicly share your errors on Flare. If configured with a valid Flare API key, your errors in production applications will be tracked, and you'll get notified when they happen.
What is CVE-2021-3129?
Ignition before 2.5.2, as used in Laravel and other products, allows unauthenticated remote attackers to execute arbitrary code because of insecure usage of file_get_contents() and file_put_contents(). This is exploitable on sites using debug mode with Laravel before 8.4.2.
The base score assigned to this unauthenticated RCE vulnerability was 9.8 (critical)!
In this lab environment, the user is going to get access to a Kali GUI instance. A Laravel instance vulnerable to an unauthenticated RCE vulnerability, identified by CVE CVE-2021-3129, is running on the target server. It can be accessed using the tools installed on Kali at http://demo.ine.local.
Objective: Leverage the vulnerable Laravel instance to exploit the unauthenticated RCE vulnerability and retrieve the flag from the target server.
This lab is dedicated to you! No other users are on this network :)
Once you start the lab, you will have access to a root terminal of a Kali instance
Your Kali has an interface with IP address 192.X.Y.Z. Run "ip addr" to know the values of X and Y.
The target server should be located at the IP address 192.X.Y.3.
Do not attack the gateway located at IP address 192.X.Y.1
