CVE-2017-17739: BrightSign Digital Signage (4k242) device (Firmware 6.2.63 and below) has directory traversal via the /storage.html rp parameter, allowing an attacker to read or write to files

The BrightSign Digital Signage (4k242) device (Firmware 6.2.63 and below) suffers from multiple vulnerabilities.

The pages:


Suffer from a Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability. The REF parameter for these pages do not sanitize user input, resulting in arbitrary execution, token theft and related attacks.

The RP parameter in STORAGE.HTML suffers from a directory traversal/information leakage weakness:

Through parameter manipulation, the file system can be traversed, unauthenticated, allowing for leakage of information and compromise of the device.

This page also allows for unauthenticated upload of files.


Page allows for unauthenticated rename/manipulation of files.

When combined, these vulnerabilities allow for compromise of both end users and the device itself.

Ex. A malicious attacker can upload a malicious page of their choosing and steal credentials, host malicious content or distribute content through the device, which accepts large format SD cards.
