CVE-2018-11241
CVE-2018-11241
[Suggested description]
An issue was discovered on SoftCase T-Router build 20112017 devices.
A remote attacker can read and write to arbitrary files on the system
as root, as demonstrated by code execution after writing to a crontab file.
This is fixed in production builds as of Spring 2018.
------------------------------------------
[Additional Information]
The T-Router protocol contains not only the functions of executing the
above-mentioned commands of the 'top' level, but also commands
allowing reading the specified file and appending to the end of the
specified file (or creating a new one).
Since the executable itself runs as root, it becomes possible to read
all the files. An attacker, for example, can write his command to
crontab and thus get code execution
Vulnerability was found in January 2018.
Reported to vendor.
Bug was successfully closed at April 2018
