Package Slug



Improper Access Control


capsule-proxy is a reverse proxy for Capsule kubernetes multi-tenancy framework. A bug in the RoleBinding reflector used by capsule-proxy gives ServiceAccount tenant owners the right to list Namespaces of other tenants backed by the same owner kind and name. For example consider two tenants solar and wind. Tenant solar, owned by a ServiceAccount named tenant-owner in the Namespace solar. Tenant wind, owned by a ServiceAccount named tenant-owner in the Namespace wind. The Tenant owner solar would be able to list the namespaces of the Tenant wind and vice-versa, although this is not correct. The bug introduces an exfiltration vulnerability since allows the listing of Namespace resources of other Tenants, although just in some specific conditions: 1. capsule-proxy runs with the --disable-caching=false (default value: false) and 2. Tenant owners are ServiceAccount, with the same resource name, but in different Namespaces. This vulnerability does not allow any privilege escalation on the outer tenant Namespace-scoped resources, since the Kubernetes RBAC is enforcing this. This issue has been addressed in version 0.4.5. Users are advised to upgrade. There are no known workarounds for this vulnerability.
