Hat-Squad Advisory: Remote buffer overflow in Netcat TCP/IP Swiss Army Knife


Product: Netcat - nc11nt.zip
Vendor Url: http://www.securityfocus.com/tools/139/scoreit
Version: Netcat v1.1
Vulnerability: Remote stack overflow in the DNS control part
Release Date: 26 December, 2004

Vendor Status:
Informed on 10 November 2004
Response: 11 November 2004
No fix


Overview:

The program 'netcat' is an advanced form of the Telnet command when used in
a hackers hands. Netcat is a simple Unix utility which reads
and writes data across network connections, using TCP or UDP protocol. It is
designed to be a reliable "back-end" tool that can be used
directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts. At the same time,
it can also be used as a network debugging and exploration tool,
since it can create almost any kind of connection you would need and has
several interesting built-in capabilities.
Standard input is normally sent to the host, and anything that comes back
across the connection is sent to standard output.
This continues indefinitely, until the network side of the connection shuts
down.
Netcat can also function as a server, by listening for inbound connections
on arbitrary ports and then doing the same reading and writing.

Problem:

1. Stack based Buffer Overflow:

Due to a boundary check bug in the DNS part, sending a client command with
more than
256 bytes will cause a stack buffer overflow.
This vulnerability can compromise several tools working without port
listener as the
the set of tools "uw-imapd" (www.washington.edu/imap/), loaded with netcat ,
this is tested wulnerable.
Read the PoC code if you need more informations on this vulnerability.

Netcat v1.1, "-e" Switch, Remote Buffer Overflow Exploit v0.1




Homepage..........: http://www.securityfocus.com/tools/139/scoreit

Affected versions.: v1.1

Fix...............: Actually none, Hobbit is warned 1 month+ ago, and
looks like
to not act, we let him to spread a backdoor :)

Risk..............: Highly critical.

-Almost everything loaded as "nc ... -e ..." is
vulnerable
-Educational tools such as the uw-imapd
(http://www.washington.edu/imap/) contains no port listener,
if it's loaded with netcat (ie: nc -L -p 143 -t -e imapd.exe
25 -t -e pop3d.exe
etc..vulnerable..)
this small example show you the large impact of this hole.
-Tools build on netcat , I guess are vulnerable , such as the netcat
with
authentification or others tools based on netcat without a security
check on src.
-Next time you run netcat -e , be sure of what you run because as said
Hobbit,
the "-e" switch is really DANGEROUS!! :DDD

Compilation.......: 101_ncat.cpp ......... Win32 (MSVC,cygwin)
101_ncat.c ........... Linux (FreeBSD,etc..)

Greetings.........: Nima Majidi, Behrang Fouladi (cool teammates ;p)
DiabloHorn, kimatrix (KD-Team guys)
Nicolas Waisman, MMiller(skape), H.D Moore, BJWever
(for the help)
Brett Moore (for all help and specially there
for suggesting me that way of MSVCRT.system call

; call system()
mov eax,1656E64h ; mov cmd + 01010101 to eax
sub eax,01010101h ; sub 01010101
push eax ; Push cmd on stack with our null byte
:)
push esp ; Location to cmd
call ebp ; Call system()

via that way you can push on the stack "\x00"cmd
without
breaking your payload.
Because in the public shellcode that he published on mailinglist

; Call system()
push 20646D63h ; Push cmd on stack, null exists from above
push esp ; Location to cmd
call ebp ; Call system()

Sure it's smaller to push direclty "\x20"cmd but
MSVCRT.system was also grabbing invalid unicode chars
before "\x20"cmd including esp pointing to cmd (windows bug ?:>)(on
w2k sp4 server).
Else to bypass a bad char , I do a small change ,adding 6 nop,
to kick out "\x0A" bugging there for netcat and prolly more.
This to finally say that the size of the shellcode is now 220 bytes
instead
of 205 (still awesome for a reversecmd generic win32 shellcode)
Tested working on W2k SP4,XP all SP. Excellent job by Brett Moore
wich I throw all credits
because this shellcode is the brain of that exploit ;)


Extra.............: !All tests were made on nc.exe from
http://www.securityfocus.com/tools/139/scoreit!
!All tests were made loading netcat: nc -L -p
143 -t -e c:\imapd.exe!
(hoping the processus wont change if you load
differently netcat, I dont think, else update urself!
!See in the code if you need the shellcode in ASM
format, really useful peace of code, thanx to bmoore and me!
!Don't use ip with #0 as '127.0.0.1' , this will break the payload.
