Password admin di Joomla berubah sendiri

Oleh : Reza Ervani

Ada keheranan penulis beberapa hari terakhir, yakni password administrator Joomla website yang penulis tangani berubah sendiri secara otomatis. Tadinya penulis menyangka ada yang melakukan remote terhadap website ini seperti yang dialami oleh website lain yang penulis tangani.

Akhirnya penulis telusuri catatan security Joomla yang dibuat oleh Joomla Security Strike Team, ternyata memang ada bug pada versi 1.5.5 yang disebut sebagai Password Remind Functionality dengan detail sebagai berikut :

  • Project: Joomla!
  • SubProject: com_user
  • Severity: Critical
  • Versions: 1.5.5 and all previous 1.5 releases
  • Exploit type: Password Reset Forgery
  • Reported Date: 2008-August-12
  • Fixed Date: 2008-August-12

Description

A flaw in the reset token validation mechanism allows for non-validating tokens to be forged. This will allow an unauthenticated, unauthorized user to reset the password of the first enabled user (lowest id). Typically, this is an administrator user. Note, that changing the first users username may lessen the impact of this exploit (since the person who changed the password does not know the login associated with the new password). However, the only way to completely rectify the issue is to upgrade to 1.5.6 (or patch the /components/com_user/models/reset.php file).

Affected Installs

All 1.5.x installs prior to and including 1.5.5 are affected.

Solution

Upgrade to latest Joomla! version (1.5.6 or newer), or patch /components/com_user/models/reset.php with the code below:

After global $mainframe; on line 113 of reset.php, add:

if(strlen($token) != 32) {
	$this->setError(JText::_('INVALID_TOKEN'));
	return false;
}
