Threat: Backdoor.Win32.Zombam.l
Vulnerability: Unauthenticated URL Command Injection
Description: Zombam malware listens on TCP port 80 and deploys a HTML Web UI for basic remote administration capability. The RAT has option to kill processes by clicking a link E.g. href="/kill&smss.exe&" this would terminate the smss.exe process. By changing "kill" to exec "exec&<command-to-run>" you can start arbitrary processes. Crafting a successful injection requires padding an extra character to the end of the executable extension you want to call, otherwise it gets truncated and will fail. Example, curl http://x.x.x.x/exec&calc.exe results in the following message: "error! calc.ex cannot be executed". However, padding the extra character so ".exe" becomes ".exee", curl http://x.x.x.x/exec&calc.exee will successfully process and we will get the response "calc.exe executed".
