Introduction:  
=============  
Lan.FS is a very quick, small and compact freeware networktool (for non-commercial use only) for   
Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista & Windows 7. It is easy to handle for beginners and provides various   
functions for experts, too. Some features are:  
  
Messenger with animated emoticons  
Filetransfer service with statusdisplay  
Remote Desktop functions to telecommand other computers in your network  
Remote Shell function for access to the systemprompt of other computers in your network.  
Access to the whole filesystem of other computers  
Windows commands (reboot, shutdown, user switch, run) on other computers  
  
These functions are provided in your Local Area Network. Innovative aspects concerning networkprograms are:  
  
Lan.FS is ready for operation directly after finishing installation.  
You do not need specialised knowledge about networks and networkadministration  
Lan.FS does not feature needless functions: You decide what to do.  
Lan.FS works Windows-Workinggroups independent  
Lan.FS works in WLAN networks (even if they are not absolutely stable)  
Lan.FS provides a substantial support and trouble shooting  
Lan.FS is Vista capable

Details:  
========  
A command execution vulnerability is detected in the official LAN.FS v2.4 Messenger Software. The vulnerability allows an remote attacker   
without user inter action to execute own system specific codes to compromise the connected client system in the lan. The command execution   
vulnerability is located in the Netzwerkeinstellungen - Administration (Computer editieren, add & co.) > Computersettings (Computereinstellungen)   
module with the bound vulnerability Computername software input field. Remote attackers can change the own computername to execute malicious system   
commands or script code attacks against the connected client via Messenger Service (Nachrichtendienst). The windows path system commands/request or   
the malicious injected script code will be directly executed out of the Nachrichtendienst web context. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability   
results in system compromise via command injection/execution, persistent script code injections, persistent software context manipulation, external   
malware loads or malicious external redirects. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires a connected conversation but no direct user inter action.   
The commands or script code will be executed when the message is processing to arrive.

Manually reproduce ...   
1. Install the Software LAN.FS 2.4.x and start LAN.FS 2.4.x  
2. First we go to Systemsettings in our windows7 system and change our computername/hostname to malicious system path command or malicious script code. Save!  
3. Change the hostname in Netzwerkeinstellungen> Administration> Computersettings to the own values with the system path command or script code (<2.). Save!  
4. Update Settings & connect the Nachrichtendient to your target system  
5. Send a random message to the victim via lan.fs messenger  
6. The vulnerable hostname in the message header can execute local file requests, execute files and path commands or execute persistent malicious script codes  
7. The command or script code will be executed when the messager is processing to display the arrived message of the attacker. No user inter action required!  
  
  
Solution:  
=========  
The vulnerability can be patched by parsing the hostname (computername) input field.   
To parse also the hostname web context in the messenger software listing.  
  
  
Risk:  
=====  
The security risk of the remote command execution vulnerability is estimated as high(+).
