Vendor description:

network storage device and any computer on your network. Plus, stream the
latest online entertainment."

Business recommendation:
------------------------
By combining the vulnerabilities documented in this advisory an attacker
can fully compromise a network which has the WDTV Media Player appliance
installed by using it as a jump-host to aid in further attacks.

SEC Consult recommends not to attach WDTV Media Player to the network until
a thorough security review has been performed by security professionals and
all identified issues have been resolved. The vendor was unresponsive and
did not provide a fix since January 2017!


Vulnerability overview/description:
-----------------------------------
The firmware does not validate the user input properly. Unauthenticated
attackers can pass specially crafted data to the entry points resulting in
the following vulnerabilities:

1. Unauthenticated Arbitrary File Upload
A malicious file can be uploaded into the webserver with no authentication
required. This is a critical vulnerability as it will lead to remote code execution.

2. Local File Inclusion (LFI)
With the existence of arbitrary file upload vulnerability, the impact of local
file inclusion can be leveraged to perform remote code execution. An
unauthenticated user in the same network is able to execute any uploaded
malicious file with the help of this vulnerability.

3. Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
All executable files in the webserver are vulnerable to CSRF which allow an
attacker to forge any type of request to any file.

4. Private Key Embedded In Firmware
Shipping a private key in firmware will result to all users having the same
private key. This is an insecure practice as anyone who owns the private key
may use the same key to decrypt other users' data.

Also check out our blog regarding the "House of Keys" issue:
http://blog.sec-consult.com/2016/09/house-of-keys-9-months-later-40-worse.html


5. SQL Injection on SQLite Database
In the worst case, an attacker can exploit this vulnerability to create a
backdoor in the webserver.

6. Webserver Running with Root Privileges
The main binary (which contains the webserver and PHP) runs with root
privileges.

7. Login not protected against brute-force attacks
Despite only a password is needed to login (without username), this
vulnerability is considered high as there is no protection against brute force
attacks.

8. Full Path Disclosure
Due to improper input validation and weak webserver configuration, it is
possible for an attacker to retrieve the full path of the web directory.


Proof of concept:
-----------------

Western Digital did not provide any patches since January 2017. The proof
of concept URLs have been removed from this advisory for most issues.


1. Unauthenticated Arbitrary File Upload
There are two files that have been found vulnerable to this vulnerability to upload
a malicious PHP script to the device:
i) "/webserver/htdocs/web/jquery/uploader/uploadify.php"
ii) "/webserver/htdocs/upload.php"

The uploaded script can be executed via the Local File Inclusion vulnerability.
[PoC removed]


2. Local File Inclusion (LFI)
The PoC shown above in 1) is sufficient to prove that this vulnerability exists.


3. Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF)
All publicly accessible scripts in the firmware were found to have no anti-CSRF
mechanisms implemented.


4. Private Key Embedded In Firmware
The private key used to encrypt communication via HTTPS protocol can be
retrieved from "/webserver/conf/server.key".


5. SQL Injection on SQLite Database
There are two parameters affected in "DB/connect2sqlite.php" namely:
i) entry_id
ii) lang_id


6. Webserver Running with Root Privileges
With root privileges granted to the webserver, the "passwd" and "shadow" files
can be retrieved from "/etc" directory via the other critical vulnerabilities.
As the result, below is the password hash for the OS-level user.

root:GIBxjIlMZhNb2:0:0:root:/:/bin/sh


7. Login is not protected against brute-force attacks
Below shows the cURL request to login into the firmware. A "yes" message will
be returned for a valid credential. On the other hand, a message "no" will be
returned for invalid credentials.

[PoC removed]

8. Full Path Disclosure
The full path can be retrieved by visiting below URL:

http://$IP/DB/connect2sqlite.php


Vulnerable / tested versions:
-----------------------------
The following version has been tested and verified to be vulnerable. It is
assumed that earlier versions are affected as well:

1.03.07

Western Digital did not provide any information on which firmware versions
are affected.


Vendor contact timeline:
------------------------
