# Exploit Title: H2 Database 1.4.196 - Remote Code Execution # Google Dork: N/A # Date: 2018-09-24 # Exploit Author: h4ckNinja # Vendor Homepage: https://www.h2database.com/ # Software Link: http://www.h2database.com/h2-2018-03-18.zip # Version: 1.4.196 and 1.4.197 # Tested on: macOS/Linux # CVE: N/A # This takes advantage of the CREATE ALIAS RCE (https://www.exploit-db.com/exploits/44422/). # When the test database has a password that is unknown, it is still possible to get the execution # by creating a new database. The web console allows this by entering the name of the new database # in the connection string. When the new database is created, the default credentials of # username asaa and password aa (blank) are created. The attacker is logged in automatically. # The attached Python code, modified from 44422, demonstrates this. #!/usr/bin/env python ''' Exploit Title: Unauthenticated RCE Date: 2018/09/24 Exploit Author: h4ckNinja Vendor: http://www.h2database.com/ Version: all versions Tested on: Linux, Mac Description: Building on the Alias RCE, there's an authentication bypass to create a database, and then login to that one.
