Multi-Master Replication Manager for MySQL mmm_agentd Remote Command Injection Vulnerabilities

This update adds data sanitization to inputs for the mmm agent.

Multiple exploitable remote command injection vulnerabilities exist in the MySQL Master-Master Replication Manager (MMM) mmm_agentd daemon 2.2.1. mmm_agentd commonly runs with root privileges and does not require authentication by default. A specially crafted MMM protocol message can cause a shell command injection resulting in arbitrary command execution with the privileges of the mmm_agentd process. An attacker that can initiate a TCP session with mmm_agentd can trigger these vulnerabilities.

The impact of these vulnerabilities can be lessened by configuring mmm_agentd to require TLS mutual authentication and by using network ACLs to prevent hosts other than legitimate mmm_mond hosts from accessing mmm_agentd.

For example on Linux iptables rules can be used to block access to the port mmm_agent is listening on from all hosts except the mmm_monitor.

The configuration of ssl can be used where firewall rules are not practical. See Socket Documentation

Add to mmm_common.conf

    type ssl
    cert_file /etc/ssl/certs/
    key_file /etc/ssl/certs/
    ca_file /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt # or ca-certificates.crt

Now only those with access to the private key can send commands. Whilst your web server certificate will do the job, you may consider registering a dedicated certificate just for this task.

NOTE: By now there are a some good alternatives to MySQL-MMM. Maybe you want to check out Galera Cluster which is part of MariaDB Galera Cluster and Percona XtraDB Cluster.
