Remote Code Execution on Western Digital PR4100 NAS (CVE-2022-23

This blog post describes an unchecked return value vulnerability found and exploited in September 2021 by Alex PlaskettCedric Halbronn and Aaron Adams working at the Exploit Development Group (EDG) of NCC Group. We successfully exploited it at Pwn2Own 2021 competition in November 2021 when targeting the Western Digital PR4100. Western Digital published a firmware update (5.19.117) which entirely removed support for the open source third party vulnerable service “Depreciated Netatalk Service”. As this vulnerability was addressed in the upstream Netatalk code, CVE-2022-23121 was assigned and a ZDI advisory published together with a new Netatalk release 3.1.13 distributed which fixed this vulnerability together with a number of others.
