CVE:            CVE-2022-33942


2. CREDITS
==========
This vulnerability was discovered and researched by Julien Ahrens from
RCE Security.


3. VERSIONS AFFECTED
====================
Intel Data Center Manager 4.1.1.45749 and below


4. INTRODUCTION
===============
Energy costs are the fastest rising expense for todays data centers. Intel Data
Center Manager (Intel DCM) provides real-time power and thermal consumption data,
giving you the clarity you need to lower power usage, increase rack density, and
prolong operation during outages.

(from the vendor's homepage)


5. VULNERABILITY DETAILS
========================
The application allows configuring authentication via Active Directory groups. While
this by itself isn't an issue, it becomes one as soon as an Active Directory group
with a well-known SID (such as "S-1-5-32-544" or "S-1-5-32-546") is configured to
allow authentication to DCM. This is because Intel's DCM only relies on the group's
SID to allow authentication but doesn't verify the authenticating domain, which the
user can give during the authentication process against the DCM Console and its REST
interface.

Since the DCM will send all Kerberos and LDAP (authentication) requests against the
given domain, it is trivially easy to spoof the authentication responses by using an
arbitrary Kerberos and LDAP server and replying with the SID of one of the configured
Active Directory groups.

This allows an attacker to bypass the authentication schema by using any domain
with any user/password combination without actually being part of any Active Directory
groups.


6. PROOF OF CONCEPT
===================
See the referenced blog post for a full exploit.


7. SOLUTION
===========
Update to Intel DCM 5.0 or later
