Why coding after a long drinking night is not a good idea
I’d love to hear the background story behind this one:
[CiscoWorks IPM] version 2.6 for Solaris and Windows contains a process that causes a command shell to automatically be bound to a randomly selected TCP port.
Why on earth? And why a random port?
And if you’re still wondering, yes – it’s a remote root shell with no authentication
Remote, unauthenticated users are able to connect to the open port and execute arbitrary commands with casuser privileges on Solaris systems and with SYSTEM privileges on Windows systems.
Cisco is being cruel and only disclosing the technical info. Common Cisco, share the juicy parts! We want Full Disclosure!
