Apple Game Center
You already know that Apple is a Brand that can’t be beaten so easily by any other competitors. However, nobody can say that things might change when. So, you can think that Apple can make mistakes too. A few days ago, the Apple Game Center got into the spotlight for behaving unusually.
The seriousness breakdown when it is the sensitive point of the market. Due to a certain vulnerability in its Parse Server, it got into a flex, where it had a bug freeing the access to the control panel/ User ID. The Bug is allowing attackers to Authenticate Bypass.
It’s an Open-Source Backend Server. Users are used to deploy for any main purpose of theirs from any infrastructure running Node.js.
Impact of this Bug
Apple Game Center’s Auth Adapter isn’t validated, therefore bypassing is possible. It can be possible by making fake docs (certificate) that are accessible via certain Apple Domains. Also, they (attacker) need to provide the URL to that Certificate in AuthData Object.
That Bug has got the ID number CVE-2022-31083, and it has a severe critical rating, following a score of 8.6. This Bug had a lot of effect on the previous versions 4.10.11 and 5.2.2 of Parse Server. Moreover, the bug has been in the scene due to the non-validation of the Parse Server Apple Game Center Auth Adapter.
NVD description has explained that the attacker can achieve Authentication Bypass by Fake Docs (certificate). Addressing these flaws wasn’t easy for them but they did it with the help of the rootCertificateUrl property
“For rooting the certificate of Apple’s Game Center Authentication Certificate it takes the URL”. Default will be set to the URL of the existing root certificate.
The developers are advised to keep their URL certificates up to date if using Parse Server Apple Game Center Auth Adapter.
