# Google Dork: N/A
# Date: 2020-04-20
# Exploit Author: Sander Ubink
# Vendor Homepage:
# Software Link:
# Version: Tested on 1.12.9 and 1.13.3, vendor reported 1.12 and 1.13
# Tested on: Windows and Linux
# CVE: CVE-2020-12712

# Description: SOS JobScheduler is a tool for remote system administration that allows users to call maintenance scripts via a web interface.
# The tool places the maintenance scripts on the remote systems by means of (S)FTP. It allows the user to save profiles for these connections,
# in which the password for the (S)FTP connection is optionally stored. When the user chooses to store the password with the profile,
# it is encrypted using the name of the profile as the encryption key. Since the name of the profile is stored in the same configuration file,
# the plaintext (S)FTP password can trivially be recovered. The encryption algorithm used is Triple DES (3DES) with three keys, requiring a key
# length of 24 bytes. The profile name is padded to this length to create the key. Finally, the encrypted password gets base64 encoded before
# being stored in the configuration file.

# Usage: python [encrypted password in base64] [profile name]
