The c2py-function in the gettext module is seriously flawed in many ways due
to its use of eval to create a plural function:

   return eval('lambda n: int(%s)' % plural)

My first discovery was that nothing prevents an input plural string that
resembles a function call:

   gettext.c2py("n()")(lambda: os.system("sh"))

This is of course a low risk bug, since it requires control of both the plural
function string and the argument.

Gaining arbitrary code execution using only the plural function string requires
that the security checks are bypassed. The security checks utilize the tokenize
module and makes sure that no NAME-tokens that are not "n" exist in the string.
However, it does not check if the parser succeeds without any token.ERRORTOKEN
being present. Hence, the following input will pass the security checks:

   gettext.c2py( '"(eval(foo) && ""'  )(0)

   ----> 1 gettext.c2py( '"(eval(foo) && ""'  )(0)
   gettext.pyc in <lambda>(n)
   NameError: global name 'foo' is not defined

It will pass since it recognizes the entire input as a STRING token, and
subsequently fails with an ERRORTOKEN.

Passing a string in the argument to eval will however break the exploit since
the parser will read the start-of-string in the eval argument as end-of-string,
and the eval argument will be read as a NAME-token.

Instead of passing a string to eval, we can build a string from characters in
the docstrings available in the context of the gettext module:

   gettext.c2py('"(eval('
       'os.__doc__[152:155] + ' # os.
       'os.__doc__[46:52] + '   # system
       'os.__doc__[318] + '     # (
       'os.__doc__[55] + '      # '
       'os.__doc__[10] + '      # s
       'os.__doc__[42] + '      # h
       'os.__doc__[55] + '      # '
       'os.__doc__[329]'        # )
       ') && ""')(0)

This will successfully spawn a shell in Python 2.7.11.

Bonus: With the new string interpolation in Python 3.7, exploiting gettext.c2py
becomes trivial:

   gettext.c2py('f"{os.system(\'sh\')}"')(0)

The tokenizer will recognize the entire format-string as just a string, thus
bypassing the security checks.

To mitigate these vulnerabilities, eval should be avoided by implementing a
custom parser for the gettext plural function DSL.

gettext_c2py.patch tries to avoid the problem. It still uses eval but manually parse the expression using tokens extracted from gettext. Tests are passed.

But there is still a problem. Both patched and original c2py fail to handle nested ternary operator. They respect the right associative but fails to handle expressions like '1?2?3:4:5'.
msg280048 - (view) Author: Carl Ekerot (Carl Ekerot) * Date: 2016-11-04 15:05
It doesn't solve the case when an identifier or number is used as a function:

   >>> import os
   >>> gettext.c2py("n()")(lambda: os.system("sh"))
   $ 
   0
   >>> gettext.c2py("1()")(0)
   Traceback (most recent call last):
     File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
     File "<string>", line 1, in <lambda>
   TypeError: 'int' object is not callable

This is more of an unintended behavior than a security issue.

Xiang Zhang: I've created a patch based on yours which handles the above case. I've also added a corresponding test case.

Imo it would be even better if we could avoid eval. One possible (and safe) way would be to construct a safe subset of Python using the ast module. This would however still require that the C-style syntax is translated to Python. As you mention, there are issues parsing and translating nested ternary operators, and I doubt it will be possible to cover all cases with the regex replace utilized today.

What if make repeated replacements with regular expression r'([^?:]*?)\?([^?:]*?):([^?:]*)'?

> It doesn't solve the case when an identifier or number is used as a function:

In the first case we should convert an argument to integer.

    ns = {}
    exec('''if True:
        def func(arg):
            n = int(arg)
            return {}
        '''.format(plural), ns)
    return ns['func']

Or raise an exception if argument is not integer.

In the second case I think we can just left it as is. This is not valid C expression.

Or we can add try/except in above code and convert TypeError to ValueError if this is more preferable exception.

> gettext.c2py("n()")(lambda: os.system("sh"))

Empty parentheses should be disallowed. Function calls are not allowed in plural expression. And non-integer argument should be disallowed either, just as Serhiy's example shows.

How does it work for '1?2:3?4:5'? :-( I am considering a parser.

> How does it work for '1?2:3?4:5'?

'1?2:3?4:5' -> '(2 if 1 else 3)?4:5' -> '(4 if (2 if 1 else 3) else 5'

But there are other problems. Precedence of some operators is different in C and Python. Chained comparison in Python cause different result that in C (e.g. '2 == 2 == 2'). Seems there is no other way besides a simple parser.

gettext_c2py.patch itself LGTM for fixing security issue, but tests are needed. It would be nice to make c2py() working with any expressions, but if this is too hard, this can be left for other issue. I'm going to commit a variant of gettext_c2py.patch before 3.6 release if there will be not better patches.

Verified gettext.c2py with gettext_c2py.patch applied agains the plural forms actually used in localization, listed over at http://docs.translatehouse.org/projects/localization-guide/en/latest/l10n/pluralforms.html. I tested all of the none-trivial forms, and from what I can tell they generate valid syntax and are correct.

> '1?2:3?4:5' -> '(2 if 1 else 3)?4:5' -> '(4 if (2 if 1 else 3) else 5'

This is not right. It's right associative so it should be

1?2:(3?4:5) -> 1?2:(4 if 3 else 5) -> 2 if 1 else (4 if 3 else 5)

> It would be nice to make c2py() working with any expressions, but if this is too hard, this can be left for other issue.

Agree. But I am interested in trying.

It gets drawbacks so I don't include tests. I'll add in next try.

The gettext module might be vulnerable to f-string attacks, too. Also see #18317.
msg280119 - (view) Author: Carl Ekerot (Carl Ekerot) * Date: 2016-11-05 18:00
> The gettext module might be vulnerable to f-string attacks

It is. See the example in the first comment:

   gettext.c2py('f"{os.system(\'sh\')}"')(0)

This vulnerability seems to be solved in Xiang's patch. The DoS aspect is interesting though, since there's no constraints against malicious use of the power-operator, say "9**9**9**..**9". This too would be solved by implementing a parser with only simple arithmetics.
msg280120 - (view) Author: Christian Heimes (christian.heimes) * (Python committer) Date: 2016-11-05 18:17
Argh, sorry. I meant to write "The gettext module might be vulnerable to more than f-string attacks.".

May I suggest that you have a look at my old patch? It uses an AST visitor to inspect the AST of a gettext plural expression. It allows only a limited set of AST types as well as limited amount of expressions. I consider it a superior solution and a fix for more generic attacks.

I haven't tested my patch with f-strings yet. It either refuses f-strings FormattedValue already or can be easily modified to reject it.
msg280122 - (view) Author: Xiang Zhang (xiang.zhang) * (Python committer) Date: 2016-11-05 19:21
Christian, I think our patches are quite similar in function. They only allow limited tokens. 

> I consider it a superior solution and a fix for more generic attacks

Mine now still allows **. But it can be easily fixed.

But both our patches still translate a C expression to Python and still suffer from nested ternary operator and different semantics between C and Python, e.g. (2==2==2 as Serhiy notes). :-( I plan to try a simple parser.
msg280157 - (view) Author: Xiang Zhang (xiang.zhang) * (Python committer) Date: 2016-11-06 17:37
gettext_c2py_v2.patch implements a simple C expression parser. More tests are included.

Carl, hope you are willing to test it.
msg280191 - (view) Author: Carl Ekerot (Carl Ekerot) * Date: 2016-11-07 08:37
Judging by the code, this seems to be a much more rigid implementation. I've only run the unit tests and some variations of my initial examples, and everything seems to work as intended. Will look at it more closely this afternoon.

One thing that caught my attention in the patch is that gettext.c2py is removed entirely. I know that this function is not exposed in the docs or in __all__, but it still has "public scope" and it's likely used directly in the wild (googling the signature confirms this). Perhaps it should give a DeprectationWarning and delegate to _Plural?

> Perhaps it should give a DeprectationWarning and delegate to _Plural?

I hold a conservative opinion about this. c2py in my mind should be a inner help method. It's not documented so if there are users using it, they are risking changes. And as reported here, it's buggy and dangerous.

Sorry Xiang, but your patch looks overcomplicated to me. Too much methods, decorators, classes, too much strange names.

Here is simpler implementation with using only one recursive function.

> Sorry Xiang, but your patch looks overcomplicated to me. Too much methods, decorators, classes, too much strange names.

It's fine. That's a Pratt parser. Yes, the names are strange. Your patch looks more simpler. I left several comments.

Just for reference:

https://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/gettext.html#Plural-forms
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gettext.git/tree/gettext-runtime/intl/plural.y

Yet one security issue is that too deep recursion can cause MemoryError or even a crash in Python compiler. My patch creates too much nested parenthesis. Updated patch minimize using parenthesis to minimum and adds guards against too deep recursion.

> What a comment you need Xiang? Isn't existing comment enough?

Serhiy, I mean the case a number starting with 0, e.g. 0123. The plural form is a C expression and in C 0123 is an octal number. c2py now interprets it as a decimal number.

Hi, this broke a couple tests with Django because it's passing number as a float rather than an integer. For example:

Can you advise if this patch could be adapted or if Django should adapt?

By the way, I used this patch to get a more useful error message:

GNU gettext only allows the plural value(n) to be an integer(unsigned long int). Django deliberately converts the value to long in filesizeformat. Any reason not to use int?
msg280784 - (view) Author: Serhiy Storchaka (serhiy.storchaka) * (Python committer) Date: 2016-11-14 15:53
Proposed patch makes gettext accepting non-integer numbers. But DeprecationWarning is emitted if this number have fractional part (because in this case the result of current code can be different from the result of old code). I think Django tests should be passed without errors and warnings.

In future versions (probably in 3.7) this warning will be replaced with TypeError or ValueError, and new warning will be added for all non-integer numbers.
