Affected version: Model: XT, XD, HD, LS  
Firmware / OS version: <=8.2.26  
Summary: BrightSign designs media players and provides free software  
and cloud networking solutions for the commercial digital signage market  
worldwide, serving all vertical segments of the marketplace.  
Desc: Unauthenticated Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF) vulnerability  
exists in the BrightSign digital signage media player affecting the  
Diagnostic Web Server (DWS). The application parses user supplied data  
in the 'url' GET parameter to construct a diagnostics request to the  
Download Speed Test service. Since no validation is carried out on the  
parameter, an attacker can specify an external domain and force the  
application to make an HTTP request to an arbitrary destination host.  
This can be used by an external attacker for example to bypass firewalls  
and initiate a service and network enumeration on the internal network  
through the affected application.  
Tested on: roNodeJS
