Everything old is new again
As you probably already know, hardware manufacturers are not always great at security. Today we'll be picking on Netgear, who produce a WiFi router called the WNR2200. This cute little device, brand new out of the box on store shelves today, runs Linux 2.6.15 with Samba 3.0.24. For those of you keeping score at home, those versions were released in 2007. Way back in 2007, Samba had a pre-auth heap buffer overflow vulnerability in the LsarLookupSids RPC call, for which Metasploit has had an exploit since shortly after the bug's disclosure.
Unfortunately for people who like shells, the exploit only worked on x86 targets, so popping these new routers with old exploits wasn't feasible. Until now. Thankfully, JanMitchell came to the rescue, porting it to MIPS for all your ridiculously-old-software-on-a-brand-new-router hacking needs.
Steal all the things
A few weeks ago, we talked about stealing AWS metadata. This update adds a post module (
post/multi/gather/awks_keys) that will extract credential and other valuable AWS information from a compromised machine with aws console/cli installed and configured with credentials. These credentials can be used to access all of an AWS user's resources he/she has access to.
There won't be a release next week because of the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US. Automated nightly installers for the open source framework will still be automatically built nightly as you might expect.
