Subject: [FD] UPDATE: [SYSS-2019-021]: WolfVision Cynap - Use of Hard-coded
 Cryptographic Key (CWE-321) [CVE-2019-13352]

Advisory ID: SYSS-2019-021
Product: Cynap
Manufacturer: WolfVision
Affected Version(s): 1.18g, 1.28j
Tested Version(s): 1.18g, 1.28j
Vulnerability Type: Use of Hard-coded Cryptographic Key (CWE-321)
Risk Level: High
Solution Status: Fixed
Manufacturer Notification: 2019-05-03
Solution Date: 2019-06-19
Public Disclosure: 2019-07-04
CVE Reference: CVE-2019-13352
Authors of Advisory: Manuel Stotz, Gerhard Klostermeier (SySS GmbH)



WolfVision Cynap is a wireless collaboration and presentation system.

The manufacturer describes the product as follows [1]:

"Cynap is a stand-alone all-in-one wireless collaboration and
presentation system which includes a built-in media player, web
conferencing, on-board recording and streaming , BYOD screen sharing
for all mobile devices, and annotation functionality, making it the
ideal device to form the centrepiece of new and adapted classrooms and
meeting spaces."

Due to the use of a hard-coded cryptographic key, an attacker can
generate support PINs for resetting the administrative user password in
order to gain administrative access to the device.


Vulnerability Details:

SySS GmbH found out that the WolfVision Cynap wireless collaboration
and presentation system uses a static, hard-coded cryptographic secret
for generating support PINs used for the provided 'forgot password'

By knowing this static secret and the corresponding algorithm for
calculating support PINs, an attacker can reset the password of the
administrative user account "ADMIN" and thus gain unauthorized access to
the affected Cynap device via a network connection.


Proof of Concept (PoC):

SySS GmbH developed a software tool for generating support PINs either
in online or offline mode.

The following output of the software tools illustrates a successful
attack resulting in a reset password for the administrative user
account "ADMIN".

[*] Bye!

A successful attack against a vulnerable WolfVision Cynap device gaining
administrative access is demonstrated in our SySS PoC video
"Administrating WolfVision Cynap the Hacker's Way" [5].
