antMan versions <= 0.9.c contain a critical authentication defect, allowing an unauthenticated attacker to obtain root permissions within the antMan web management console.
2. Proof of Concept
The antMan authentication implementation obtains user-supplied username and password parameters from a POST request issued to /login. Next, antMan utilizes Java’s ProcessBuilder class to invoke, as root, a bash script called antsle-auth.
This script contains two critical defects that allow an attacker to bypass the authentication checks. By changing the username to > and the password to a url-encoded linefeed (%0a), we can force the authentication script to produce return values not anticipated by the developer.
To exploit these defects, use a web proxy to intercept the login attempt and modify the POST parameters as follows:
POST /login HTTP/1.1
username= > &password=%0a
You will now be successfully authenticated to antMan as the administrative root user.
