Fuzzing: FastStone Image Viewer & CVE-2021-26236

This blog post is a re-post of the original article “Fuzzing: FastStone Image Viewer & CVE-2021-26236” that I have written for Yarix on YLabs. Introduction In my precedent blog post I’ve introduced “fuzzing” from a theoretical point of view. As I’ve previously anticipated, today I’m going to disclose the fuzzing methodology, process and samples that led me to discover five different vulnerabilities in FastStone Image Viewer v.<=7.5. I’ll also go over the root cause analysis of CVE-2021-26236 and how to achieve...

Software Testing Methodologies & Approaches to Fuzzing

This blog post is part of a series and a re-posting of the original article “Fuzzing 101” that I have written for Yarix on YLabs. Introduction In this article, I would like to introduce fuzz testing as part of a vast overview of software testing approaches used to discover bugs and vulnerabilities within applications, protocols, file formats and more. Application Security With an ever-increasing number of vulnerabilities discovered during the years, many organizations still spend little budget and effort to produce and ensure...

.NET Grey Box Approach: Source Code Review & Dynamic Analysis

Following a recent engagement, I had the opportunity to check and verify some possible vulnerabilities on an ASP .NET application. Despite not being the deepest technical nor innovative blog post you could find on the net, I have decided to post it anyway in order to explain the methodology I adopt to verify possible vulnerabilities. If you are into grey-box approach (Source Code Review and Dynamic Analysis, SAST/DAST), new to ASP .NET applications or you are planning to take AWAE,...

A tale of a kiosk escape: ‘Sricam CMS’ Stack Buffer Overflow

TL;DR: Shenzhen Sricctv Technology Sricam CMS (SricamPC.exe) <= v.1.0.0.53(4) and DeviceViewer (DeviceViewer.exe) <= v.3.10.12.0 (CVE-2019-11563) are affected by a local Stack Buffer Overflow. By creating a specially crafted "Username" and copying its value in the "User/mail" login field, an attacker will be able to gain arbitrary code execution in the context of the currently logged-in user.

Tabletopia: from XSS to RCE

During this period of social isolation, a friend of mine proposed to play some online "board games". He proposed “Tabletopia”: a cool sandbox virtual table with more than 800 board games. Tabletopia is both accessible from its own website and from the Steam’s platform. While my friends decided to play from their browser, I’ve opted for the Steam version. We joined a room and started a game; at one point we were messing around with some in-game cards when , for...

Rubyzip insecure ZIP handling & Metasploit RCE (CVE-2019-5624)

This is a re-posting of the original article "On insecure zip handling, Rubyzip and Metasploit RCE (CVE-2019-5624)" that I have wrote on Doyensec During one of our projects we had the opportunity to audit a Ruby-on-Rails (RoR) web application handling zip files using the Rubyzip gem. Zip files have always been an interesting entrypoint to triggering multiple vulnerability types, including path traversals and symlink file overwrite attacks. As the library under testing had symlink processing disabled, we focused on path...

Instrumenting Electron Apps for Security Testing

This is a re-posting of the original article "Instrumenting Electron Apps for Security Testing" that I have wrote on Doyensec What is Electron? The Electron Framework is used to develop multi-platform desktop applications with nothing more than HTML, JavaScript and CSS. It was initially developed for GitHub's Atom editor and since then it was used to create applications like Discord, Ghost, GitHub, Skype, Slack, Wire and a lot more. While for the traditional desktop application various security techniques exists in order to...
