Vulnerabilities Details

XML External Entity (XXE) that lead to arbitrary file disclosure

Trend Micro Security Manager uses an outdated REST API (resteasyAjaxrsA2.3.5.Final.jar). The library suffers from an XXE vulnerability that can be exploited using Parameter Entities.

Proof of Concept

By sending the following POST request, an attacker can gain the victims a/etc/shadowa

1 POST /rest/authentication/login/sso HTTP/1.1

Local Privilege Escalation

Admin users have access via the web interface to the SSH configuration settings. The port settings are not properly handled and allow injecting shell commands as the root user.

1 POST /SSHConfig.jsp HTTP/1.1
2 Host: 192.168.254.176:8443
3 UserAAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0

12 atus=enable&SSHPort=22&op=save&cbSSHStatus=enable&btSSHPort=221

In the above code, the SSHPort= parameter does not sanitize the incoming data. An attacker can use this to inject commands that will run as root on the victimas machine.

Proof of Concept

The following POST request will call the sleep command with a value of 60 seconds:

Remote code execution

Trend Micro Deep Security has a default user with sudo privileges named iscan. This user is locked out but it can access certain elevated functions.

14 oldport=&netid=192.168.1.0&netmask=255.255.255.0&router=192.168.1.1&interface_vlanid_sel=eth1

In the above POST request, we can see the page has several parameters that are vulnerable and that we can inject malicious parameters through them: netid, netmask, router, and interface_vlanid_sel
