=====================================================================
Description:

During an external penetration test exercise for one of our clients,
an authentication bypass vulnerability was found in the
administrative interface of a MobileIron deployment. This ultimately
allowed us to, gain access to our client's internal network.

The 'j_username' parameter of the script at
https://<target>/mics/j_spring_security_check is vulnerable to blind
XPath Injection, allowing an unauthenticated attacker to retrieve the
underlying XML document.

This XML document is an excerpt of the configuration file of the
device. It contains obfuscated passwords and, depending on
configuration, might contain domain credentials and allow the
attacker to reposition both internally and on any of the attached
devices.
This vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2014-1409.

The password obfuscation algorithm is known and has already been
documented [1]... AES-ECB-PKCS1.5 with a known, shared key. While we
won't release a full-featured exploit for the vulnerability, we will
release a PoC to confirm whether the hashes are indeed vulnerable.
The vendor has confirmed that a stronger encryption method is used
since release 5.7.
This vulnerability has been assigned CVE-2013-7286.

NB: A second insecure encryption scheme is described in [1], MITRE has
assigned CVE-2013-7287 to that separate vulnerability.
