Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-202105-25
Date : 2021-05-25
CVE-ID : CVE-2021-29622
Package : prometheus
Type : open redirect
Remote : Yes
Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1971
The package prometheus before version 2.27.1-1 is vulnerable to open
Upgrade to 2.27.1-1.
# pacman -Syu "prometheus>=2.27.1-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 2.27.1.
The issue can be mitigated by using the --web.external-url= flag with a
path (e.g. --web.external-url=http://example.com/prometheus).
A security issue has been found in Prometheus before version 2.27.1. In
2.23.0, Prometheus changed its default UI to the New UI. To ensure a
seamless transition, the URL's prefixed by /new redirect to /. Due to a
bug in the code, it is possible for an attacker to craft an URL that
can redirect to any other URL in the /new endpoint.
If a user visits a Prometheus server with a specially crafted address
(e.g. http://127.0.0.1:9090/new/new<url>), they can be redirected to an
arbitrary URL. E.g. if a user visits
http://127.0.0.1:9090/new/newhttp://www.google.com/, they will be
redirected to http://google.com.
Note: Users who use a --web.external-url= flag with a path (e.g.
--web.external-url=http://example.com/prometheus) are not affected.
A remote attacker can use crafted URLs to redirect victims from a
Prometheus server instance to an arbitrary address.
