CVE-2024-27199 reveals a critical vulnerability in JetBrains TeamCity web server, allowing unauthenticated attackers to bypass authentication for a limited set of endpoints. This vulnerability exploits path traversal issues, enabling attackers to access and potentially modify system settings or disclose sensitive server information without proper authentication. Identified vulnerable paths include /res/, /update/, and /.well-known/acme-challenge/, among others. Attackers can manipulate these paths to reach restricted JSP pages and servlet endpoints, such as /app/https/settings/uploadCertificate, which could allow for the uploading of malicious HTTPS certificates or modification of server settings. This detection aims to identify potential exploitation attempts by monitoring for unusual access patterns to these endpoints, which could indicate an authentication bypass attempt in progress.

The SPL above uses the following Macros:

:information_source: jetbrains_teamcity_limited_auth_bypass_suricata_cve-2024-27199_filter is a empty macro by default. It allows the user to filter out any results (false positives) without editing the SPL.

How To Implement

The following detection relies on the Suricata TA and ensuring it is properly configured to monitor HTTP traffic. Modify the query for your environment and log sources as needed.

Known False Positives

False positives are not expected, however, monitor, filter, and tune as needed based on organization log sources. The analytic is restricted to 200 and GET requests to specific URI paths, which should limit false positives.
