Affected Product(s):  
Nutec Apps - LLC  
Product: LAN Scan HD - iOS (Web-Application) 1.20  
Exploitation Technique:  
Severity Level:  
Technical Details & Description:  
A local command inject web vulnerability has been discovered in the official LAN Scan HD v1.20 iOS mobile web-application.  
The web vulnerability allows to inject malicious script codes to the application-side of the vulnerable iOS mobile app.  
The security vulnerability is located in the device name value of the `Scan Network` module. Local attackers are able to   
manipulate the name value of the device to compromise the mail function of the Lan Scan HD mobile app. The html encoding   
is broken in the `Email Scan` export function. Local attackers are able to manipulate the device name cid name to compromise   
the application internal validation via the `Email Scan` (html). The attack vector of the vulnerability is application-side   
and the injection point is the device name information settings > name > input field.  
The security risk of the local commandpath inject vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability   
scoring system) count of 3.6. Exploitation of the local command inject vulnerability requires a low privilege iOS system   
device user account with restricted access and no user interaction. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in   
unauthorized execution of system specific commands and unauthorized path value requests to compromise the mobile iOS   
application and connected device components.  
Vulnerable Module(s)  
[+] Scan Network  
Vulnerable Parameter(s)  
[+] device cell name (cid)  
Affected Module(s)  
[+] Email Scan - Mail  
Proof of Concept (PoC):  
The vulnerability can be exploited by local attackers with restricted iOS device user account and without 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. Start your iOS device (iPhone or iPad)  
2. Install the LAN Scan HD application to your iOS device  
3. Open the iOS device settings info menu  
4. Change your device name to a malicious payload with path conditions (command inject)  
5. Save the input and open the LAN Scan HD application  
6. Click the Scan Network button on the bottom of the screen  
7. After the scan has been performed successful you click on top right the menu button  
8. Push the Email Scan button to export the scan results  
9. Now, the execution occurs in the email section were the device value is included!  
10. Successful reproduce of the remote vulnerability!

Solution - Fix & Patch:  
The vulnerability can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the vulnerable device name value in the export function.  
Restrict the input and disallow usage of special chars in names. Filter by an exception handling that prevents the execution of malicious local stored device values.  
Security Risk:  
The security risk of the local command inject web vulnerability in the LAN Scan HD application is estimated as medium. (CVSS 5.6)
