Product: NetFORCE 800, v 4.02 M10 (Build 20)
Other Versions Vulnerable: unknown, vendor’s website sucks so I can’t tell
Vulnerability type: Information disclosure
* Software Information
Model : NetFORCE 800
Version : 4.02 M10 (Build 20)
Vendor : Procom Technology, Inc.
NetFORCE’s operating system on the NAS includes the ability to send a diagnostic e-mail with a wealth of information to the technician to be able to diagnose problems without providing direct remote access. This diagnostic email includes output from various programs, statistical reports, and several file attachments.
One of these file attachments (passwd.nis) includes the NIS password map of any domain it is bound to, happily sending the entire domains fscking password hashes in the clear across the Internet over sendmail. This doesn’t impact you if you don’t use NIS as the other files that include user information “blank” out the password information.
NetFORCE sold its intellectual property to Sun and Sun uses the same systems to base their NAS solution off of. Because the NetFORCE website no longer has software versioning information, it is not possible to test on other versions or determine which versions are or are not vulnerable.
