Pi-Hole Remove Commands Linux Privilege Escalation

Posted on 30 July 2021

Pi-Hole versions 3.0 through 5.3 allows for command line input to the removecustomcname, removecustomdns, and removestaticdhcp functions without properly validating the parameters before passing to sed. When executed as the www-data user, this allows for a privilege escalation to root since www-data is in the sudoers.d/pihole file with no password.
