Selenium 3.141.59 - Remote Code Execution (Firefox/geckodriver)



Recommended Posts

# Exploit Title: Selenium 3.141.59 - Remote Code Execution (Firefox/geckodriver)
# Date: 2021-05-27
# Exploit Author: Jon Stratton
# Vendor Homepage: https://www.selenium.dev/
# Software Link: https://selenium-release.storage.googleapis.com/3.141/selenium-server-standalone-3.141.59.jar
# Version: 3.141.59
# Tested on: Selenium Server 3.141.59, webdriver, geckodriver 
# https://github.com/JonStratton/selenium-node-takeover-kit/blob/master/examples/selenium_node_rce.rb
# When Selenium runs, it creates a custom profile (in /tmp/ for Linux) on the Node. This profile then gets overwritten by a possible overlay that is sent in a base64 encoded zip file when a Selenium session is started.
# One of the config file can be used to set a custom handler (which do things like, for instance, associates “mailto:blah@blah.com” to your email client). In this example, a new handler is created for “application/sh” that will execute the argument with “/bin/sh”
# Side notes, this profile doesn't safely unzip. So this can be used to write files to the file-system.
# The Payload is encoded and embedded as inline data associated with the "application/sh" mime type.
