Is Symlink Attack A threat For Web Hosting Companies?

A Symlink Aka symbolic link is a virtual link pointing to a file in a directory. In shared Linux environment hard disk space in divided in several parts for different account. When proper security measures are not taken it may happen a shared hosting account can take over to another shared hosting account on same server by launching symlink attack. Certain measures have been taken by companies to block these types of attack and they have build their own private patches to harden server security. But what are you doing to stop symlink? Search online you will get solutions like blocking follow symlink or changing some settings in httpd.conf. Enough post or solutions are still not available online to provide full proof security. There are many ways and means to bypass those settings and initiate symlink attacks to break server security but I am not going to explain how to do it. Lets see how this attack can be initiated.

How It’s Done?

Well just by passing a proper symlink query will do the job.

Syntax:

ln -s target_file_path new_file_name

Suppose you have a site xyz.com a WordPress site on a cpanel server and its user is xyz and another user abc.com just have to run ln -s /home/xyz/public_html/wp-config.php wo.txt to get that file. This will get full source code of that file and known as full file disclosure vulnerability. Run the symlink attack on your server to make sure you are safe.

Force Users To Use Single Php.ini Under suPHP


If you have a dedicated server and use it to sell shared hosting then this article is for you. Today I am going to explain how you can force your users to use same php.ini under suPHP by disallowing .htaccess override. Limiting php.ini use will add security to your server and will disallow users to use custom php.ini file by overriding default php settings set by server administrator (root).

 

 

How to make it work:

Its very simple to enable this function in server using suPHP. Just by enabling phprc_paths in /opt/suphp/etc/suphp.conf will do the work for you. See the steps below:

vi /opt/suphp/etc/suphp.conf

Find the code below and press I to insert text.

[phprc_paths]
;Uncommenting these will force all requests to that handler to use the php.ini
;in the specified directory regardless of suPHP_ConfigPath settings.
;application/x-httpd-php=/usr/local/lib/
;application/x-httpd-php4=/usr/local/php4/lib/
;application/x-httpd-php5=/usr/local/lib/

Remove (;) from the last three lines ie.

application/x-httpd-php=/usr/local/lib/
application/x-httpd-php4=/usr/local/php4/lib/
application/x-httpd-php5=/usr/local/lib/

Now press ESCAPE button and enter :wq to save the file.

Restart Apache

/sbin/service httpd restart

Now Users wont be able to override your default php.ini file.
