CVE-2022-0415 Scanner Detail

Gogs is a painless, self-hosted Git service that mimics the functionality of GitHub. It is designed for the easy management of Git repositories with a minimal resource footprint. Gogs is widely used by individuals and organizations seeking a lightweight, open-source solution for private repositories. The platform is appreciated for its simplicity, ease of installation, and support for various platforms, making it an ideal choice for private or small-scale collaborative projects.

The vulnerability is triggered when an attacker crafts a malicious repository file that contains executable commands. Upon uploading this file to a Gogs instance, the commands within the file are executed by the server. This exploit relies on bypassing the authentication mechanisms to upload the repository file, highlighting the need for strict input validation and authentication checks. The flaw specifically targets the repository file upload functionality, making it a critical security concern for all installations of the affected versions.

Exploitation of this vulnerability can lead to unauthorized command execution on the server, allowing attackers to compromise the server's integrity, access sensitive information, or deploy malware. The impact ranges from data theft and system compromise to a complete takeover of the affected server, posing significant risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the system and its data.
