    Vulnerabilities in KONEs Group Controller (KGC)  
    Vulnerabilities were identified in the KONE Group Controller (KGC).  
    These were discovered during a black box assessment and therefore the  
    vulnerability list should not be considered exhaustive.  
    The version under test was indicated as: 4.6.4  
    Comment added by KONE  
    KONE Group Controller (KGC) is an elevator group controller computer,  
    installed in the elevator machine room of a building. Its purpose is  
    to optimize the operation of a group of elevators, and it allows  
    features such as destination calls and locking and unlocking floors.  
    Group controller is not an essential component of an elevator control  
    system and vulnerabilities in KGC do not affect the safety of the  
    elevators connected to the group.

    The following CVEs were assigned to the issues described in this report:  
    Vulnerability Overview  
    01. CVE-2018-15484: Unauthenticated Remote Code Execution  
    02. CVE-2018-15486: Unauthenticated Local File Inclusion /  
    Unauthenticated Local File modification  
    03. CVE-2018-15485: FTP without authentication and authorization  
    04. CVE-2018-15483: Denial of Service  
    Vulnerability Details  
    CVE-2018-15484: Unauthenticated Remote Code Execution  
    By modifying the file autoexec.bat via the web interface using an  
    unauthenticated local file modification method (see CVE-2018-15486),  
    an attacker can inject arbitrary operating systems commands, which get  
    executed at boot time. To trigger a reboot, an HTTP GET request to  
    /reboot has to be made. This enables an attacker to compromise the  
    integrity of all software running on the device.  
    This includes specific autoexec commands but also the full range of  
    command.com (operating system) commands regarding to FreeDOS.  
    Injecting an interactive command, such as the help command,  
    effectively prevents the KGC from booting up again and therefore  
    causes a Denial of Service Attack (CVE-2018-15483).  
    CVE-2018-15486: Unauthenticated Local File Inclusion / Unauthenticated  
    Local File modification  
    By modifying the name parameter of the file endpoint, any file the  
    webserver has access to can be viewed.  
    GET /file?name=secret.txt HTTP/1.1  
    Host: <redacted>  
    However, more importantly, by modifying the name parameter of the  
    editfile endpoint, any file can be modified:  
    GET /editfile?name=secret.txt HTTP/1.1  
    Host: <redacted>  
    After calling the endpoint above, the file to edit is presented in a  
    textbox for modification.  
    This way, attackers can choose from a wide range of attack scenarios,  
    e.g., persisting backdoors in files such as KERNEL.SYS, enable access  
    to floors, they wouldn't have access to in normal cases (KGC config  
    files) or carry out DNS redirection- and Man-in-the-Middle attacks.  
    The latter could be achieved by modifying the DNS parameter or the  
    default gateway, respectively:  
    : DHCP on or off [0-1]  
    : Attacker would switch to 0  
    : Static IP address [IP]  
    : Set a static IP  
    ip=<static IP>  
    : Subnet mask [IP]  
    mask=<appropriate mask>  
    : Default gateway [IP]  
    : Change gateway  
    default_gateway=<attacker controlled gateway>  
    : DNS [IP]  
    dns=<attacker controlled dns server>  
    : Host name [string]  
    This way, an attacker could read and modify all the data transmitted  
    over the wires.  
    CVE-2018-15485: FTP without authentication and authorization  
    FTP on the KGC is enabled on port 21 and is not secured by  
    authentication or authorization mechanisms.  
    A user that connects to that port is logged in as SuperUser, with  
    needing a username or password (also blank usernames and passwords are  
    $ ftp -p <redacted-IP>  
    Connected to <redacted-IP>.  
    220 KGC FTP Server ready  
    Name (<redacted-IP>:username): <blank>  
    331 User name okay, need password.  
    Password: <blank>  
    230 SuperUser logged in, proceed.  
    Remote system type is WIN32.  
    This way all available data can be downloaded and new data can be  
    uploaded to the KGC.  
    CVE-2018-15483: Denial of Service  
    There are several possible ways to cause a denial of service on the KGC.  
    One of them is the possibility to reboot the system via the web  
    interface. An attacker could reboot the system every time it boots  
    back up to interrupt the service and cause a denial of service attack:  
    GET /reboot HTTP/1.1  
    Host: <redacted>
