DMA[2006-0112a] - 'Toshiba Bluetooth Stack Directory Transversal'
Author: Kevin Finisterre
Vendor: http://www.toshiba-tro.de/
Product: 'Toshiba Bluetooth Stack <=v4.00.23(T)'

Description: 
Toshiba was one of the first companies to provide a working Bluetooth PC stack supporting 
the v1.2 specification. In March 2004 Fujitsu made available their LifeBook S7010 mobile 
computer qualified compliant with Toshiba's stack becoming the first available BT v1.2 device. 
Toshiba's licensing of its stack has provided an advantage to partners looking to support the 
new specification.

Until recently when a few co-workers purchased Dell XPS M170 laptops with internal TrueMobile 
350 Bluetooth modules, I had not actually seen the Toshiba stack deployed. I assume the reason 
I have not seen it anywhere is due to the fact that Widcomm still seems to dominate the market. 

After leaving the office I searched for more information on the Toshiba stack and wound up 
downloading a copy from the Bluetooth SIG website. Build20050512_v3031C-30Days.zip was and may 
still be distributed at http://www.bluetooth.org. Since notifying Toshiba of the issue I have 
been unable to locate this file on the SIG website.

Both the version 3.x binary provided by the SIG as well as a version 4.x binary that I downloaded 
from http://aps.toshiba-tro.de/bluetooth/pages/download.php were tested and found to be vulnerable 
to simple ../ style attacks in their OBEX Push services. Further testing also confirmed the Dell
driver was also exploitable. http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R112482.EXE is Toshiba Stack v4.00.11.

Using ussp-push an attacker can place a trojaned file anywhere on the filesystem. This attack will
require the user to accept the connection request. Upon being prompted to accept the request the 
user is asked where the downloaded file should be placed. Regardless of the user specified path an 
attacker can place the anywhere that the user has permission to write. During the connection 
request no filename is presented so the person being attacked has no real indication that something 
malicious is occurring.

Work Around: 
Do not accept connection requests from unknown sources. Wait for proper vendor response and 
updates. Multiple attempts to inform the vendor about this issue were made however I was unable 
to maintain a dialog with anyone that would respond to email. Further questions about this issue 
should be directed to the Toshiba support staff or your hardware manufacturer.
