Bitcrack Cyber Security - BitLabs Advisory Multiple Vulnerabilities in Intellinet NFC-30IR Network Cameras ADVISORY -------- Title: Local File Inclusion in CGI-SCRIPT & Hard-Coded Manufacturer Backdoor Advisory ID: BITL-17-001 Date published: 2017-04-05 Date of last update: 2017-04-05 Vendors contacted: Intellinet VULNERABILITY ------------- Type: Local File Inclusion (LFI)(Authenticated) & Hardcoded Manufacturer Backdoor Risk/Impact: Access to sensitive files & Access control bypass. Exploitation Type : Remote CVE Name: CVE-2017-7461 and CVE-2017-7462 DESCRIPTION ------------ We found two vulnerabilities affecting the Intellinet NFC-30IR Camera with firmware version LM. 1. [CVE-2017-7461] once authenticated as admin:admin, you can read local files by requesting the '/cgi-bin/admin/fileread?READ.filePath=<insert here>' Instead of the developer using server-side scripts to render information, it takes the plain text files and uses /fileread CGI script to simply return the plain text - the site then relies on Javascript to "format" the text into something pretty. There is no sanitization nor lock-down of what paths that script can read, hence all files can be viewed. Interesting files to request are; /etc/passwd; /etc/boa.conf and more. 2. [CVE-2017-7462] a manufacturer backdoor exists that allows one to access a script called '/cgi-bin/mft/manufacture' by authenticating as manufacture:erutcafunam This binary has been analyzed before by other vendors. We did not analyze it again as we feel this is the same file used in other cameras. Note that the NFC-30IR does NOT have the wireless_mft executable. The hard-coded manufacturer user:pass is manufacture:erutcafunam as shown in the below boa.conf snippet; /---- --snip-- #ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/ ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/operator/ /opt/cgi/operator/ ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/view/ /opt/cgi/view/ ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/admin/ /opt/cgi/admin/ ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/jpg/ /opt/cgi/jpg/ ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /opt/cgi/ ScriptAlias /jpg /opt/cgi/jpg # MFT: Specify manufacture commands user name and password MFT manufacture erutcafunam --snip-- ----/ This indicates that the camera hardware may be some kind of modified/stripped version of a Zavio board. VENDOR RESPONSE/NOTIFICATION ---------------------------- Vendor was given 7 days to respond, and 3 written notifications. No response received nor acknowledgement. Vendor has not released updates to fix the vulnerabilities.
