Facendo ordine tra i miei documenti ho ritrovo questa analisi che avevo fatto con un amico per un contest su honeynet e mi è venuta voglia di pubblicarla 🙂

—[ Getting start

To start analysis we’ve downloaded the log files day1.log.gz and
day3.log.gz from http://project.honeynet.org/scans/scan28/ then
we checked for their md5sum and finally we’ve decompressed them.

—[ Honeypot’s OS

The operating system of honeypot is a SunOS, we can deduce it in
some different ways. Many hints was given by attacker, infact he had
downloaded from the network a series of tools for SunOS.
We can clearly see some binaries like “solbnc” and “ipv6sun” by watching
day1.log with ethereal.
Another way to deduce was offered again by attacker who
downloaded some patches for the system from sunsolve.
The easiest way was another time given by attacker:

we can clearly see the “uname -a” output: “SunOS zoberius 5.8
Generic_108528-09 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-5_10”

We used passive fingerprinting of the server’s packets by obtaining
“SunOS 5.8 / 6” as result

Reassuming:

—[ Break in

To break in the attacker has taken advantage of a vulnerability present
in CDE (Common Desktop Environment), the default X Window System GUI
environment of SunOS. Infact the CDE Subprocess Control Server daemon is
vulnerable to a buffer overflow that can be exploited just sending a
particular client request. Once exploited the attacker can execute
arbitrary commands on the system with superuser privileges.
The dtspcd is configured to run on port 6112/tcp, and a typical inetd
configuration is the following:

dtspc stream tcp nowait root /usr/dt/bin/dtspcd /usr/dt/bin/dtspcd

In day1.log we can observe a series of connections at port 6122/tcp,
probably that connections were the specially crafted CDE client request
used to exploit the service, followed by an exchange of datas on
the dtspc ports.

As supposed, in the stream we can see clearly the exploit at work and we can obtain some important information about the arbitrary executing code: "ksh -c echo "ingreslock stream tcp nowait root /bin/sh sh -i">/tmp/x;/usr/sbin/inetd -s /tmp/x;sleep 10;/bin/rm -f /tmp/x”

05b0 72 6d 20 2d 66 20 2f 74 6d 70 2f 78 20 41 41 41 rm -f /t mp/x AAA

Thanks to that information we know that the attacker will use a remote
root shell binded on ingreslock by inetd.

—[ ICMP “skillz”

During the analysis we have noticed a large amount of ICMP
(echo reply) packets with “skillz” in data field.

0000 00 07 ec b2 d0 0a 08 00 20 d1 76 19 08 00 45 00 …….. .v…E.

0040 69 6c 6c 7a 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 illz…. ……..

The ICMP packets with “skillz” in them are used by Stacheldrath
D-DoS tool. In order to manage the DoSNet these ICMP are exchanged
among all the hosts linked in it.
This tool works on Linux and Solaris machines and can be used to perform
ICMP, SYN and UDP flood attacks moreover the attacker can specify
attack’s duration and a range of ports for SYN flood.

—[ Sequences involved in the attack

The attack takes place in two days and follow these sequences:

[DAY 1]

– [1] Break in – The attacker gained a remote root shell by taking
advantage of a vulnerability in dtspcd

– [2] Dummy hide – The attacker logged into the system thanks to the
remote shell and created a home directory

– [3] Downloads – The attacker downloaded rootkit, utilities and patches
from ftp and http sites

– [4] Rootkit – The attacker run a shell script for system patching
and log cleaning. Log cleaning operations was done by
erasing all the log files. The script had replaced
also many unix utilities with trojaned versions

– [5] Backdoor – The attacker run a root backdoor using ssh

– [6] D-Dos – The attacker installed Stacheldrath client

– [7] Bouncer – The attacker installed an IRC bouncer and connected it to
irc.stealth.net

[DAY 3]

– [1] Chat – The attacker chatted with BNC placed on some channels
in ircnet due to IRC WAR actions

– [2] DOS – The attacker used the DoSNet against java.tiscalinet.it to
make a split for IRC WAR actions

– [3] SSH – The attacker made a connection using SSH and modified the
TCP/IP stack applying the IPv6 support

– [4] Reboot – To make functional the IPv6 support the attacker rebooted
the system

– [5] IRC6 – The attacker made an ipv6 tunnel p-t-p and used the bnc
on irc6.edisontel.it

—[ Martian Protocol

We don’t expect to found the IPv6 protocol over an IPv4 network, in
this circumstance the IPv6 stack was enabled by the attacker, he used
this protocol to make IRC connections using irc6.edisontel.it. The
attacker is familiar to IRC WAR and used a BNC in IPv6 to make it less
exposed to DOS. We’ve identified this protocol because after the system
reboot we’ve noticed a series of ipv6 connections on irc6.edisontel.it

—[ System used

We have identified some different systems that have been involved in the
attack. First of all we can identify the system used by the attacker to
break into the honeynet. That system is a linux box (we check the
operative system using the fingerprint) and its IP is 61.219.90.180 .
Investigating on that ip we can obtain some information about his owner:

$ whois -h whois.twnic.net 61.219.90.180
Su, Yi Chun
No.37-24, Yu Ying Rd.
Changhua County Taiwan

$

The result of fingerprint is: Linux 2.4.0 – Linux 2.4.18

The second system identified is that of the attacker, we can see his
evidences only when he established the connection to the IRC BNC.
The IP of the attacker is 80.117.14.222 and investigating on it we can
find that his connection is an ADSL provided by telecom italia:

The result of fingerprint on the attacker system is: Windows XP Pro
The third system is the server used by attacker for rootkit and
utilities download. The IP of that system is 62.211.66.16
At the moment this IP is assigned to telecom italia net (TIN)
but maybe when take place the attack that IP was assigned to XOOM
free web hosting as we can see from the FTP banner:

FTP: 220 services FTP server (Version XOOM FTP 1.24.3+local-release
Fri Aug 28 15:52:40 PDT 1998) ready.

The result of the fingerprint on the system is: FreeBSD 4.5

The latest system obviously is the honeynet, once the attacker
break in, used it to make IRC WAR and to make DoS over the
net using Stacheldrath client. The honeynet system was linked to
other two systems for D-DoS purposes:

61.134.3.11
217.116.38.10

—[ Attacker Nationality

To identify the attacker nationality we have several ways. By watching the
IP and analyzing the whois output we can understand that the attacker is
italian because he used an adsl provided by Telecom Italia. This
kind of adsl is for home use and there are low probabilities that the
attacker spoofed his ip to connect to the BNC
The confirmation of attacker nationality comes just from BNC log, infact
he talking on irc (in italian) told the name of the city where he lives:

: |AnDr34z|!~OmBr4@vhost.irc6.server.tb.ngnet.it PRIVMSG #bobz :ma tu di

—[ Conclusion

Standing by attack topology and modus operandi of the attacker we can
suppose that the attacker is just a script-kiddie that wasn’t searching
for any reserved information but he needed only a system to make IRC
WAR. The attack was brutal and after it the system was full of anomalous
things: the log was cleaned using the command “rm” by a script, was
installed a non supported protocol by default (IPv6), the shell binded
on a port not used on that system and so on.
All that anomalies allow us to have notice of an intruder in the system
that could be eventually pursued by law
We was able to analyze all the sessions because are in clear text, the
only one not analyzed is the ssh one.
Teorically we can decode also that protocol because there
are either the public and private keys in the rootkit.

—[ Notes

With a dumb IDS implementations the presence of unusual protocol should
be a bypassing method of the IDS because if the protocol is unknown to
IDS it doesn’t match any of the criteria implemented so no rules in the
IDS can give us a response and no alarm is reported.

To decode the log in pcap format we used a series of tool for packet
analysis: tcpdump, ethereal and tcpflow; standard shell tools for log
parsing: strings, awk, ecc; and the whois to obtain informations on
adress information

La fine di un’era…

Per questioni lavorative, tempo fa, ho messo su un nuovo servizio di Continuos Integration e per farlo mi sono appoggiato ad un software di nome Hudson.
Una caratteristica di questo software è di essere scritto in Java, fin qui niente di male (niente polemiche!!!)…
Per chi non fosse dell’ambiente java è stato sviluppato dalla Sun Microsystem (per gli amici era Sun) una azienda molto popolare nel mondo informatico, sopratutto per i tecnici (suo è il sistema operativo solaris che girava principalmente su piattaforma sparc). Non molto tempo fa era girata la notizia che Oracle (l’azienda, non il database 😉 avevo comprato Sun Microsystem.
Per riprendere il discorso (che stavo sbrodolando qui e la), insomma l’altro giorno dopo l’ennessimo upgrade di Hudson anzichè il classico logo (del signore con i baffetti) mi ritrovo questo:

SUN RIP

Al che, un pò preoccupato con tutti i colleghi ci siamo chiesti cosa stesse succedendo… da qualche ricerca qui e la si è concluso che ormai Sun non esiste più, e il messaggio è stato chiaro, aprendo www.sun.com compare il sito di oracle.

E proprio la fine di un’era…

Questo cacciavite non funziona!

L’altro giorno leggevo sul blog di Emiliano Bruni un interessante articolo sulla carenza degli indirizzi IP.

Ma andiamo per gradi, che cos’è un indirizzo IP!?!? Per citare Wikipedia (si per ora Tanenbaum lasciamolo tranquillo)

Un Indirizzo IP è un numero che identifica univocamente un dispositivo collegato a una rete informatica che comunica utilizzando lo standard IP (Internet Protocol).

Per farla semplice, possiamo paragonare un indirizzo IP ad un numero di telefono, se da casa mia voglio chiamare qualcuno per parlarci dovrò conoscere il suo numero di telefono, e su internet succede esattamente lo stesso solo che è un pò “nascosto” alla vista degli utenti… ma la logica è questa, semplice no?

Il problema nasce quando i numeri di telefono assegnabili sono inferiori alle persone che chiedono di avere un telefono… ed è quello che sta succedendo su Internet, e recente la notizia che lo IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) ha iniziato ad assegnare quelle classi che erano marcate come “NON ALLOCATE” e che venivano tenute da parte per momenti di “crisi”.
Come possiamo vedere da questo documento a gennaio 2010 e stata assegnata ad APNIC la classe 1.x.x.x ! (per la gioia degli utenti Fastweb dell’area di Milano che inizieranno ad avere collisioni… )

Sarà ora di accellerare il passaggio a IPv6 e dobbiamo farlo in fretta per salvare Alice, Bob e Carl !!! 😉

Due righe veloci veloci per comunicarVi che a causa di un crash di 2 dischi del mio fidato raid5 ho perso tutte le e-mail dalle ore 06:30 del 16/12/09 alle 20:00 (circa) del 17/12/09….

Un minuto di silenzio per ricordare i dati così prematuramente scomparsi..
