Common Vulnerability Scoring System:
====================================
3.3


Product & Service Introduction:
===============================
Wickr (pronounced `wicker`) is a proprietary instant messenger for iPhone and Android. Wickr allows users to exchange end-to-end encrypted and 
self-destructing messages, including photos and file attachments. The `self-destruct` part of the software is designed to use a `Secure File Shredder` 
which the company says `forensically erases unwanted files you deleted from your device`. However the company uses a proprietary algorithm to manage 
the data, a practice which is prone to error according to many security experts.

On January 15, 2014, Wickr announced it is offering a US$100,000 bug bounty for those who find vulnerabilities that significantly impact users. In addition, 
a recipient can in general use other software and techniques like screen-capture capabilities or a separate camera to make permanent copies of the content.

Abstract Advisory Information:
==============================
The Vulnerability Laboratory Research team discovered a denial of service web vulnerability in the offical Wickr Desktop v2.2.1 windows software.


Vulnerability Disclosure Timeline:
==================================
2014-12-25:	Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory)


Discovery Status:
=================
Published


Affected Product(s):
====================
Wickr Inc.
Product: Wickr - Desktop Software (Windows) 2.2.1


Exploitation Technique:
=======================
Local


Severity Level:
===============
Medium


Technical Details & Description:
================================
A local denial of service vulnerability has been discovered in the official Wickr TSM v2.2.1 (MSI) windows software.
The issue allows local attackers to crash or shutdown the software client by usage of special crafted symbole payloads.

The wickr v2.2.1 (msi) software crashs with unhandled exception in the CFLite.dll by the qsqlcipher_wickr.dll when processing to include 
special crafted symbole strings 
as password or name. The issue occurs after the input of the payload to the `change name friend contacts`-, `the wickr password auth`- 
and the `friends > add friends` input fields. Attackers are able to change the name value of the own profile (payload) to crash the 
wickr client. Local attackers can include the payload to the input fields to crash/shutdown the application with unhandled exception.

The security risk of the denial of service vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.3. 
Exploitation of the DoS vulnerability requires a low privileged application user account and low user interaction. Successful exploitation of 
the vulnerability results in an application crash or service shutdown.


Vulnerable Module(s):
				[+] friend contacts
				[+] wickr password auth
				[+] friends

Vulnerbale Input(s):
				[+] add friends (name)
				[+] wickr password auth
				[+] change friend (update name)

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
				[+] name (value input)
				[+] password (vale input)


Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
The denial of service web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers and local attackers with low user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.


Manual steps to reproduce the vulnerability ...
1. Download Wickr v2.2.1 for windows to your windows 8 box (mywickr.info/download.php?p=4) 
2. Install the wickr windows version of the software to your windows 8 box
3. Create an new account and include the payload to the password input field
Note: After the payload has been processed to the auth, the software crashs. You should attach a debugger ago.
4. Successful reproduce of the first issue!
5. We register a new account with regular values
6. Open the friends > add friends section and include the payload to the search input value
Note: After the payload has been processed to add the friend, the software crashs. You should attach a debugger ago.
7. Successful reproduce of the second issue!
8. We open the software again and login. Switch to the existing friends contacts and edit the profile
9. Include in the name values the payload and save the settings
Note: After the payload has been processed to change to the name, the software crashs. You should attach a debugger ago.
4. Successful reproduce of the third issue!
