Telegram anonymity fails in desktop - CVE-2018-17780

Hi Internet,

Summary: Strangely tdesktop 1.3.14 and Telegram for windows (3.3.0.0 WP8.1) leaks end user private and public IP address while making calls. This bug was awarded €2000 by Telegram security team. (Sweeet..)
Img Src: https://telegram.org/img/tl_card_synchronize.gif
Telegram is supposedly a secure messaging application, but it forces clients to only use P2P connection while initiating a call, however this setting can also be changed from "Settings > Privacy and security > Calls > peer-to-peer" to other available options. The tdesktop and telegram for windows breaks this trust by leaking public/private IP address of end user and there was no such option available yet for setting "P2P > nobody" in tdesktop and telegram for windows.

PS: Even telegram for android will also leak your IP address if you have not set "Settings > Privacy and security > Calls > peer-to-peer > nobody" (But Peer-to-Peer settings for call option already exists in telegram for android).

To view this in action in tdesktop:
1. Open tdesktop,
2. Initiate a call to anyone,
3. You will notice the end user IP address is leaking.
 

Other scenario:
1. Open tdesktop in Ubuntu and login with user A
2. Open telegram in windows phone login with user B
3. Let user B initiate the call to user A
4. While user A access log will have public/private IP address of user B.
Not only the MTProto Mobile Protocol fails here in covering the IP address, rather such information can also be used for OSINT. This issue was fixed in 1.3.17 beta and v1.4.0 which have an option of setting your "P2P to Nobody/My contacts", Later CVE-2018-17780 was assign to this vulnerability.

Telegram uses SOCKS5 to share user/creds

Hi Internet,

Summary: Telegram is supposedly is a secure messaging application but it uses SOCKS5 to transmit user credential's, neither traffic nor credentials are encrypted in the SOCKS5 protocol, but this is how the SOCKS protocol works (see https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1929), SOCKS5 carries passwords in cleartext. Telegram team is aware with this and says its working has intended.
Img Src: https://telegram.org/img/tl_card_open.gif

Product affected: tdesktop 1.3.16 alpha, Browser Info: Firefox 62.0 (64 bit), Tested on: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS x64

Steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Open tdesktop
2. Go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Connection type
3. Open "Proxy Settings" check "Use proxy"
4. Put some random Hostname, Port, Username and Password
5. tdesktop tries to connect it, while it connects click on that line which is made of 3 small spots (On right hand side)
6. Click share, the link gets copied.

Example Link: https://t.me/socks?server=inputzero.io&port=22&user=dhiraj&pass=MystrongPassw0rd 

The link which gets generated have the password in plaintext, SOCKS5 is a transport protocol and by itself it is not encrypted. Requests transmitting such  credentials in plain text are considered as a bad security practice.

However, the URL which gets generated via telegram is in HTTPS but, URI producers should not provide a URI that contains a username or password that is intended to be secret.  URIs are frequently displayed by browsers, stored in clear text bookmarks, and logged by user agent history and intermediary applications (proxies).

Read this on oss sec-lists. Later CVE-2018-17613 was assigned to this issue.

The Secrets of Tez

Hi Internet,

Summary: The Google Pay (Tez) apps leaks end users email address, this issue was marked as WONTFIX by google.
Img Src: https://www.kisspng.com/png-tez-unified-payments-interface-google-apps-701156/preview.html

You might be aware of different technique for extracting email from LinkedIn similarly Tez app allow you to do so.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Tez,
2. Click on New,
3. You will see "Google Pay Connections",
4. Click on any one contact.
5. Their respective email address will be displayed.


In this case, I have never had email of "Ajay" I just had his contact saved. However in the similar fashion, I can view email address of  all the people in my contacts if they are on Tez. However it is not necessary to initiate the payment to get his/her email you can simply view it. (If user is already added in contact).

This issue was submitted to google but was marked WONTFIX, google says "Thanks for report! We think the issue might not be severe enough for us to track it as a security bug."

This is not such great bug but, such data can be use in OSINT to perform targeted attack on victim, hope you like the read.

An untold story of skype by microsoft

Hi Internet,

Summary: It was observed that the skype has a malloc(): memory corruption bug while you share some media/file with someone during a call.

Tested on: Linux zero 4.15.0-29-generic #31-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jul 17 15:39:52 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS)
Product affected: Skype for linux (skypeforlinux_8.27.0.85_amd64.deb)

Steps to reproduce this issue:
1. Open Skype
2. Call anyone
3. During the call try sharing the media or files to the same person
4. The Skype  gets crash.

While on a call with one of my colleague, I tried sharing a file which froze my skype and then it gets crash. However moving further I tried to debug it with `gdb` and this is what i got.

Cool, so when i read the backtrace, I understood that, this might be a memory corruption in `malloc()`.

So basically, the memory allocator allocates pages of memory at once for use of programs, and it gives you a pointer within them. Since this files which i am trying to share may be larger for skype to handle during the call (PS: I was just sharing an jpg file in this case which was of 800kB). But for skype if a larger program is allocating larger amounts of memory and writing further past the end of your allocated space, then you'll end up attempting to write into unallocated memory and may cause a memory corruption.



Being a fan of responsible disclosure, I submitted this to Microsoft on 8 August 2018, but  MS says "Upon investigation, we have determined that this submission does not meet the bar for security servicing"  🤦

Okay, but I passed on this message to skype team on twitter, and they looked into this!
At last, this was patched on Skype version 8.29.0.41 on Linux.
