Security advisory: Arbitrary file disclosure vulnerability in

II - SUMMARY

Description: Arbitrary file disclosure vulnerability in IP3 NetAccess
leads to full system compromise

Author: Sebastian Wolfgarten (sebastian at wolfgarten dot com)

Date: February 11th, 2007

Severity: High

III - OVERVIEW

IP3's NetAccess is a device created for high demand environments
such as convention centers or hotels. It handles the Internet access
and provides for instance firewalling, billing, rate-limiting as well
as various authentication mechanisms. The device is administrated via
SSH or a web-based GUI. Further information about the product can be
found online at http://www.ip3.com/poverview.htm.

IV - DETAILS

Due to inproper input validation, all NetAccess devices with a firmware version
less than 4.1.9.6 are vulnerable to an arbitrary file disclosure vulnerability.
This vulnerability allows an unauthenticated remote attacker to abuse the
web interface and read any file on the remote system. Due to the fact that important
system files are world-readable (see bid #17698), this does include /etc/shadow
and thus leads to a full compromise of the device! In addition an attacker is
able to gain access to the proprietary code base of the device and potentially
identify as well as exploit other (yet unknown) vulnerabilities.

V - EXPLOIT CODE

The trivial vulnerability can be exploited by accessing the file "getfile.cgi"
with a relative file path such as

http://$target/portalgroups/portalgroups/getfile.cgi?filename=../../../../../../../../etc/shadow

As the input to the "filename" parameter is not properly validated accessing
this URL will disclose the contents of /etc/shadow to a remote attacker.

VI - WORKAROUND/FIX

To address this problem, the vendor has released a new firmware version
(4.1.9.6) which is available at http://www.ip3.com. Hence all users of IP3's NetAccess
devices are asked to install this version immediately.

As a temporary workaround, one may also limit the accessibility of the web interface
of the device to authorized personnel only. Nevertheless contacting the vendor and
installing the new firmware version is highly recommended!
