# Exploit Title: SpamTitan 7.07 - Unauthenticated Remote Code Execution
# Date: 2020-09-18
# Exploit Author: Felipe Molina (@felmoltor)
# Vendor Homepage: https://www.titanhq.com/spamtitan/spamtitangateway/
# Software Link: https://www.titanhq.com/signup/?product_type=spamtitangateway
# Version: 7.07
# Tested on: FreeBSD
# CVE : CVE-2020-11698

---[SPUK-2020-09/SpamTitan Unauthenticated Remote Code Execution in
snmp-x.php]------------------------------

SECURITY ADVISORY:   SPUK-2020-09/SpamTitan Unauthenticated Remote
Code Execution in snmp-x.php
Affected Software:   SpamTitan Gateway 7.07 (possibly earlier versions)
Vulnerability:       Unauthenticated Remote Code Execution
CVSSv3:              10.0
(https://www.first.org/cvss/calculator/3.0#CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)
Severity:            Critical
Release Date:        2020-04-17
CVE:                 CVE-2020-11698

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
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Improper input sanitization of the parameter "community" on the page
snmp-x.php would allow a remote attacker to inject command directives into the
file snmpd.conf. This would allow executing commands on the target server by
by injecting an "extend" or "exec" SNMPD directive and querying the snmp daemon
of the server for the correct OID.

III. PoC
~~~~~~~~

Use python 3 and install the following modules: requests, pysnmp.
If your IP is 192.168.1.5 and the target SpamTitan server is
spamtitan.example.com, call the PoC like this:
./poc.py -t spamtitan.example.com -i 192.168.1.5

---------------------------------------------

#!/usr/bin/env python

# Author: Felipe Molina (@felmoltor)
# Date: 09/04/2020
# Python Version: 3.7
# Summary: This is PoC for an unauthenticated RCE 0day on SpamTitan
7.07 and previous versions.
# The script abuses of two weaknesses on the product:
# 1. Unauthenticated interaction with snmp-x.php script
# 2. Injection of snmpd.conf configuration directives in multiple POST
parameters such as "community" or "user_username" of snmp-x.php
# Product URL: https://www.spamtitan.com/
# Product Version: 7.07 and probably previous

---------------------------------------------

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

The snmpd daemon is running as root in the target server. The
pressented PoC would return a root shell without need of any
registered user in the target server. There is total loss of
confidentiality, integrity and availability on the SpamTitan server.
