ID: 103831
CVE: None
Download vulnerable application: None
# Exploit Title: 
# Author: Dolev Farhi
# Date: 2020-12-29
# Vendor Homepage: https://github.com/guelfoweb/knock
# Version : 4.1.1
# Tested on: Debian 9.13

Knockpy, as part of its subdomain brute forcing flow of a remote domain, issues a HEAD request to the server to fetch details such as headers, status code, etc.
The data then gets reflected when issuing the -c flag to store as a CSV file with the Server HTTP Response Header unfiltered.

Vulnerable code segment(s)

# knockpy.py

# row = ip+'\t'+str(data['status'])+'\t'+'host'+'\t'+str(data['hostname'])+get_tab(data['hostname'])+str(server_type)
# subdomain_csv_list.append(ip+','+str(data['status'])+','+'host'+','+str(data['hostname'])+','+str(server_type))

# modules/save_report.py

# if fields:
#  csv_report += 'ip,status,type,domain_name,server\n'
# for item in report:
#  csv_report += item + '\n'
# report = csv_report


1. Example malicious Nginx config to return CSV formula headers:

http {
...    
  server_tokens off;
  more_set_headers 'Server: =1336+1';
...
}
