Vulnerability title: Shell Breakout in Symmetricom s350i
|Reported by:||Mike Emery|
It was observed that it was possible to inject OS commands due to insufficient sanitisation by the engineering shell of the client data processed.For example, the following engineering commands were found to have OS command injection:
1) Login to the system over SSH.
2) From the resultant shell enter the command “engineer”.
3) Enter the “sys” submenu.
4) Enter the command “cp /z /zz;id”.
5) Observe the response containing the output of id.
Note: This was not the only place in which command injection was identified. It appears that this issue is endemic due to the way in which the web application has been developed.
With OS command injection, an attacker can leverage this weakness to execute arbitrary commands, disclose sensitive information and cause denial of service. Any malicious activities would appear to come from the vulnerable application and will be executed in security context of that application.
