KDE Project Security Advisory

Title: Ark: maliciously crafted archive can install files outside the extraction directory.
Risk Rating: Important
CVE: CVE-2020-16116
Versions: ark <= 20.04.3
Author: Elvis Angelaccio
Date: 30 July 2020

Overview

A maliciously crafted archive with "../" in the file paths would install files anywhere in the user's home directory upon extraction.

Proof of concept

For testing, an example of malicious archive can be found at https://github.com/jwilk/traversal-archives/releases/download/0/relative2.zip

Impact

Users can unwillingly install files like a modified .bashrc, or a malicious script placed in ~/.config/autostart

Workaround

Users should not use the 'Extract' context menu from the Dolphin file manager. Before extracting a downloaded archive using the Ark GUI, users should inspect it to make sure it doesn't contain entries with "../" in the file path.

Solution

Ark 20.08.0 prevents loading of malicious archives and shows a warning message to the users.

Alternatively, https://invent.kde.org/utilities/ark/-/commit/0df592524fed305d6fbe74ddf8a196bc9ffdb92f can be applied to previous releases.

Credits

Thanks to Dominik Penner for finding and reporting this issue and thanks to Elvis Angelaccio and Albert Astals Cid for fixing it.
