Lately, I’ve experienced some weird Pidgin crashes when I was copy&pasting into chat windows. The strange part was: I didn’t even know what triggered the crash because I actually didn’t know what was in my clipboard at this exact point. This is a quick write-up of how I investigated the issue and some interesting properties I found out about clipboards.Continue reading

For those who never heard of Sitefinity before, it is an ASP.NET-based Web Content Management System (WCMS), which is used to deploy and manage applications as other CMS‘s do. A bitter quick glance at Sitefinity and its advantages can be found in this overview.
Delving into the core of this blog post, recently I had the opportunity to look at Sitefinity WCMS in which I found two reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) (CVE-2018-17053 and CVE-2018-17056), a stored XSS (CVE-2018-17054) and an arbitrary file upload (CVE-2018-17055) vulnerabilities.Continue reading
Recently, I had some time to play around with HEVD , an extremly vulnerable Windows driver available for 32-bit and 64-bit systems.
Since exploits for all vulnerabilities of the 32-bit variant are publically available, I was wondering why this is not the case for the 64-bit version, especially for the pool corruption and UAF vulnerabilities.Continue reading
Taking a look at the CVE List for WordPress, most vulnerabilities aren’t found within the WordPress core but inside of third-party plugins and themes.
Today, let’s talk about WordPress.
Performing a WordPress assessment might seem boring at first as core functionality [tested] and configuration does not allow for extensive security misconfigurations. Luckily, most instances use plugins and themes to add features not offered by the WordPress core.
In this blog post I would like to discuss the findings and how I discovered them. Also, I will describe different vendor responsiveness reaching from not responding at all, to not understanding the issue to fast and professional responses kindly asking for a review of the updated code ready for deployment.

IoT is everywhere right now and there are a lot of products out there. I have been looking at an IP Gateway lately and found some serious issues. The Busch-Welcome IP-Gateway from Busch-Jaeger is one of the devices that bridges the gap between sensors and actors in your smart home and the network/Internet. It enables the communication to a door control system that implements various smart home functions. The device itself is offering an HTTP service to configure it, which is protected by a username and password. Some folks even actually expose the device and its login to the Internet. I tried to configure one of these lately and stumbled upon some security issues that I would like to discuss in this blog post.

Lately I’ve been analyzing a .NET binary that was quite interesting. It was a portable binary that shipped without any third-party dependencies. I started looking at the .NET assembly with ILSpy and noticed that there was not that much code that ILSpy found and there were a lot of references to classes/methods that were neither in the classes identified by ILSpy nor were they part of the .NET framework.Continue reading
