Watchguard Fireware OS DOS & Stored XSS Sep 18 2017 08:46PM

Watchguardâ??s Firebox and XTM are a series of enterprise grade network
security appliances providing advanced security services like next
generation firewall, intrusion prevention, malware detection and
blockage and others. Two vulnerabilities were discovered affecting the
XML-RPC interface of the Web UI used to manage Fireware OS, the
operating system running on Watchguard Firebox and XTM appliances. To
exploit any of the flaws discovered, no authentication on the Web UI
is required.

Description
If a login attempt is made in the XML-RPC interface with a XML message
containing and empty member tag, the wgagent crashes logging out any
user with a session opened in the UI. By continuously executing the
failed logging attempts, the device will be impossible to be managed
using the UI. It was not tested if this flaw causes similar lockout
and degradation in connectivity like my previous CVE-2017-8056.

Proof of concept
Below is an example of the request that causes a crash in the XML-RPC wgagent:

POST /agent/login HTTP/1.1
Host: fireware-host:4100
Connection: close
Cache-Control: max-age=0

Description
When a failed login attempt is made to the login endpoint of the
XML-RPC interface, if javascript code, properly encoded to be consumed
by XML parsers, is embedded as value of the user tag, the code will be
rendered in the context of any logged in user in the Web UI visiting
â??Traffic Monitorâ? sections â??Eventsâ? and â??Allâ?. As a side effect, no
further events will be visible in the Traffic Monitor until the device
is restarted.
