[R1] Trend Micro Smart Protection Server Denial of Service

High

Synopsis

While investigating CVE-2017-11398, Tenable found a new denial of service vector in Trend Micro Smart Protection Server (TMSPS). The vulnerability allows an unauthenticated remote attacker to create "BF" files on the target by sending crafted HTTP requests to http://<target>/tmcss/. The created "BF" file has a name in the form of incdiff_<older_version>_<version> and is stored in /var/tmcss/pattern/<version>. Each file is approximately 17 MB. An attacker can fill the remote target's disk by sending a large number of HTTP requests with different <older_version> parameters.

The following curl command serves as a proof of concept:

curl -so /tmp/incdiff_1712200300_1812200300  'http://<tmsps_host>/tmcss/?OldBF=1712200300&NewBF=1812200300'

On our test host the proof of concept generates the following file in /var/tmcss/patterns/1812200300/:

[[email protected] 1812200300]# ls -l incdiff*
-rw-r-----. 1 webserv webserv 17825852 Mar  2 00:18 incdiff_1712200300.1812200300
