# BlackStratus LOGStorm Remote Root Exploit
#
# Jeremy Brown [jbrown3264/gmail]
# Dec 2016
#
# -Synopsis-
#
# "Better Security and Compliance for Any Size Business"
#
# BlackStratus LOGStorm has multiple vulnerabilities that allow a remote unauthenticated user, among
# other things, to assume complete control over the virtual appliance with root privileges. This is
# possible due to multiple network servers listening for network connections by default, allowing
# authorization with undocumented credentials supported by appliance's OS, web interface and sql server.
#
# -Tested-
#
# v4.5.1.35
# v4.5.1.96
#
# -Usage-
#
# Dependencies: pip install paramiko MySQL-python
#
# There are (5) actions provided in this script: root, reset, sql, web and scan.
#
# [root]  utilizes bug #1 to ssh login to a given <host> as root and run the 'id' command
# [reset] utilizes bug #2 to ssh login to a given <host> as privileged htinit user and resets the root password
# [sql*]  utilizes bug #3 to sql login to a given <host> as privileged htr user and retrieve web portal credentials
# [web]   utilizes bug #4 to http login to a given <host> as hardcoded webserveruser (presumably) admin account
# [scan]  scans a given <host>/24 for potentially vulnerable appliances
#
# *sql only works remotely before license validation as afterwards sql server gets firewalled, becoming local only.
#
# Note: this exploit is not and cannot be weaponized simply because exploits are not weapons.
#
# -Fixes-
#
# BlackStratus did not coherently respond to product security inquiries, so there's no official fix. But
# customers may (now) root the appliance themselves to change the passwords, disable root login, firewall
# network services or remove additional user accounts to mitigate these vulnerabilities.. or choose another
# product altogether because this appliance, as of today, simply adds too much attack surface to the network.
#
# -Bonuses-
#
# 1) Another account's (htftp/htftp) shell is set to /bin/false, which affords at least a couple attacks
# 
# 1.1) The appliance is vulnerable to CVE-2016-3115, which we can use to read/write to arbitrary files
# 1.2) We can use the login to do port forwarding and hit local services, such as the Java instance running
# in debug mode and probably exploitable with jdwp-shellifer.py (also netcat with -e is installed by default!)
#
# 2) More sql accounts: htm/htm_pwd and tvs/tvs_pwd
