HomeAutomation v3.3.2 Authentication Bypass Exploit  
  
  
Vendor: Tom Rosenback and Daniel Malmgren  
Product web page: http://karpero.mine.nu/ha/  
Affected version: 3.3.2  
  
Summary: HomeAutomation is an open-source web interface and scheduling solution.  
It was initially made for use with the Telldus TellStick, but is now based on a  
plugin system and except for Tellstick it also comes with support for Crestron,  
OWFS and Z-Wave (using OpenZWave). It controls your devices (switches, dimmers,  
etc.) based on an advanced scheduling system, taking into account things like  
measurements from various sensors. With the houseplan view you can get a simple  
overview of the status of your devices at their location in your house.  
  
Desc: The application suffers from an authentication bypass vulnerability when  
spoofing client IP address using the X-Forwarded-For header with the local (loopback)  
IP address value allowing remote control of the smart home solution.
