2020-03-29gitweb: fix UTF-8 encoding when using CGI::FastJulien Moutinho
FCGI streams are implemented using the older stream API: TIEHANDLE, therefore applying PerlIO layers using binmode() has no effect to them. The solution in this patch is to redefine the FCGI::Stream::PRINT function to use UTF-8 as output encoding, except within git_blob_plain() and git_snapshot() which must still output in raw binary mode.

2019-11-18gitweb: escape URLs generated by href()Jeff King
There's a cross-site scripting problem in gitweb, where it will print URLs generated by its href() helper without further quoting. This allows an attacker to point a victim to a specially crafted gitweb URL and inject arbitrary HTML into the resulting page (which the victim sees as coming from gitweb). The base of the URL comes from evaluate_uri(), which pulls the value of $REQUEST_URI via the CGI module. It tries to strip off $PATH_INFO, but fails to do so in some cases (including ones that contain special characters, like "+"). Most of the uses of the URL end up being passed to "$cgi->a(-href = href())", which will get quoted properly by the CGI module. But in a few places, we output them ourselves as part of manually-generated HTML, and whatever was in the original URL will appear unquoted in the output. Given that all of the nearby variables placed into this manual HTML _are_ quoted, it seems like the authors assumed that these URLs would not need quoting. So it's possible that the bug is actually in evaluate_uri(), which should be doing a more careful job of stripping $PATH_INFO. There's some discussion in a comment in that function, as well as the commit message in 81d3fe9f48 (gitweb: fix wrong base URL when non-root DirectoryIndex, 2009-02-15). But I'm not sure I understand it. Regardless, it's a good idea to quote these values at the point of insertion into the HTML output: 1. Even if there is a bug in evaluate_uri(), this would give us belt-and-suspenders protection. 2. evaluate_uri() is only handling the base. Some generated URLs will also mention arbitrary refs or filenames in the repositories, and these should be quoted anyway. 3. It should never _hurt_ to quote (and that's what all of the $cgi->a() calls are doing already). So there may be further work here, but this patch at least prevents the XSS vulnerability, and shouldn't make anything worse. The test here covers the calls in print_feed_meta(), but I manually audited every call to href() to see how its output was used, and quoted appropriately. Most of them are esc_attr(), as they're used in tag attributes, but I used esc_html() when the URLs were printed bare. The distinction is largely academic, as one is implemented as a wrapper for the other. Reported-by: NAKAYAMA DAISUKE <> Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

2019-04-01gitweb: make hash size independentbrian m. carlson
Gitweb has several hard-coded 40 values throughout it to check for values that are passed in or acquired from Git. To simplify the code, introduce a regex variable that matches either exactly 40 or exactly 64 hex characters, and use this variable anywhere we would have previously hard-coded a 40 in a regex. Add some helper functions which allow us to write tighter regexes that match exactly the number of hex characters we're expecting. Similarly, switch the code that looks for deleted diffinfo information to look for either 40 or 64 zeros, and update one piece of code to use this function. Finally, when formatting a log line, allow an abbreviated describe output to contain up to 64 characters.

Change the log formatting function to know about "git describe" output such as "v2.8.0-4-g867ad08", in addition to just plain "867ad08". There are still many valid refnames that we don't link to e.g. v2.10.0-rc1~2^2~1 is also a valid way to refer to v2.8.0-4-g867ad08, but I'm not supporting that with this commit, similarly it's trivially possible to create some refnames like "æ/var-gf6727b0" or which won't be picked up by this regex. There's surely room for improvement here, but I just wanted to address the very common case of sticking "git describe" output into commit messages without trying to link to all possible refnames, that's going to be a rather futile exercise given that this is free text, and it would be prohibitively expensive to look up whether the references in question exist in our repository. There was on-list discussion about how we could do better than this patch. Junio suggested to update parse_commits() to call a new "gitweb--helper" command which would pass each of the revision candidates through "rev-parse --verify --quiet". That would cut down on our false positives (e.g. we'll link to "deadbeef"), and also allow us to be more aggressive in selecting candidate revisions. That may be too expensive to work in practice, or it may not. Investigating that would be a good follow-up to this patch.

Change the minimum length of an abbreviated object identifier in the commit message gitweb tries to turn into link from 8 hexchars to 7. This arbitrary minimum length of 8 was introduced in bfe2191 ("gitweb: SHA-1 in commit log message links to "object" view", 2006-12-10), but the default abbreviation length is 7, and has been for a long time. It's still possible to reference SHA-1s down to 4 characters in length, see v1.7.4-1-gdce9648's MINIMUM_ABBREV, but I can't see how to make git actually produce that, so I doubt anyone is putting that into log messages in practice, but people definitely do put 7 character SHA-1s into log messages. I think it's fairly dubious to link to things matching [0-9a-fA-F] here as opposed to just [0-9a-f], that dates back to the initial version of gitweb from 161332a ("first working version", 2005-08-07).

2016-09-25gitweb: use highlight's shebang detectionIan Kelling
The "highlight" binary can, in some cases, determine the language type by the means of file contents, for example the shebang in the first line for some scripting languages. Make use of this autodetection for files which syntax is not known by gitweb. In that case, pass the blob contents to "highlight --force"; the parameter is needed to make it always generate HTML output (which includes HTML-escaping). Although we now run highlight on files which do not end up highlighted, performance is virtually unaffected because when we call highlight, it is used for escaping HTML. In the case that highlight is used, gitweb calls sanitize() instead of esc_html(), and the latter is significantly slower (it does more, being roughly a superset of sanitize()). Simple benchmark comparing performance of 'blob' view of files without syntax highlighting in gitweb before and after this change indicates ±1% difference in request time for all file types. Benchmark was performed on local instance on Debian, using Apache/2.4.23 web server and CGI. Document the feature and improve syntax highlight documentation, add test to ensure gitweb doesn't crash when language detection is used.

2014-11-18gitweb: hack around CGI's list-context param() handlingJeff King
As of's 4.08 release, the behavior to call CGI::param() in a list context is deprecated (because it can be potentially unsafe if called inside a hash constructor). This causes gitweb to issue a warning for some of our code, which in turn causes the tests to fail. Our use is in fact _not_ one of the dangerous cases, as we are intentionally using a list context. The recommended route by 4.08 is to use the new CGI::multi_param() call to make it explicit that we know what we are doing. However, that function is only available in 4.08, which is about a month old; we cannot rely on having it. One option would be to set $CGI::LIST_CONTEXT_WARN globally, which turns off the warning. However, that would eliminate the protection these newer releases are trying to provide. We want to annotate each site as OK using the new function. So instead, let's check whether CGI provides the multi_param() function, and if not, provide an implementation that just wraps param(). That will work on both old and new versions of CGI. Sadly, we cannot just check defined(\&CGI::multi_param), because CGI uses the autoload feature, which claims that all functions are defined. Instead, we just do a version check.

Change the @author_initials feature Jakub added in v1.6.4-rc2-14-ga36817b to match non-ASCII author initials as intended. The regexp Jakub added was intended to match non-ASCII (/\b([[:upper:]])\B/g). But in Perl this doesn't actually match non-ASCII upper-case characters unless the string being matched against has the UTF8 flag. So when we open a pipe to "git blame" we need to mark the file descriptor we're opening as utf8 explicitly. So as a result it abbreviates me to "AB" not "ÆAB", entirely because "Æ" isn't /[[:upper:]]/ unless the string being matched against has the UTF8 flag. Here's something that demonstrates the issue: #!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; binmode STDOUT, ':utf8' if $ENV{UTF8}; open my $fd, "-|", "git", "blame", "--incremental", "--", "Makefile" or die "Can't open: $!"; binmode $fd, ":utf8" if $ENV{UTF8}; while (my $line = <$fd>) { next unless my ($author) = $line =~ /^author (.*)/; my @author_initials = ($author =~ /\b([[:upper:]])\B/g); printf "%s (%s)\n", join("", @author_initials), $author; } When that's run with and without UTF8 being true in the environment it gives, on git.git: $ UTF8=0 perl | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | head -n 5 99 JH (Junio C Hamano) 35 JN (Jonathan Nieder) 35 JK (Jeff King) 20 JS (Johannes Schindelin) 16 AB (Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason) $ UTF8=1 perl | sort | uniq -c | sort -nr | head -n 5 99 JH (Junio C Hamano) 35 JN (Jonathan Nieder) 35 JK (Jeff King) 20 JS (Johannes Schindelin) 16 ÆAB (Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason) Acked-by: Jakub Narębski <> Tested-by: Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason <> Tested-by: Simon Ruderich <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
