CVE-2020-0688 Microsoft Exchange Server Exploit

Detects the exploitation of CVE-2020-0688. The POC exploit a .NET serialization vulnerability in the Exchange Control Panel (ECP) web page. The vulnerability is due to Microsoft Exchange Server not randomizing the keys on a per-installation basis resulting in them using the same validationKey and decryptionKey values. With knowledge of these, values an attacker can craft a special viewstate to use an OS command to be executed by NT_AUTHORITY\SYSTEM using .NET deserialization. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker needs to leverage the credentials of an account it had already compromised to authenticate to OWA.

Configure

Proofpoint On Demand

As a prerequisite, you need to create an APIKey and to get your cluster id:

Copy your cluster id. It is diplayed on the upper-right corner of your management interface, next to the release number.

To create an APIKey, from our dashboard:

  • Open the menu, unfold the Settings section and go to API Key Management.
  • Click on the button Create New to display the Create New API Key dialog box.
  • Type a name and generate the API Key.
  • Select View Details from the ellipsis menu on the fresh API Key and copy the key.

Create the intake

Go to the intake page and create a new intake from the format Proofpoint PoD.

Pull events

Go to the playbook page and create a new playbook with the ProofPoint PoD connector.

Set up the trigger configuration with the api key, the cluster id and the intake key. Customize others parameters if needed.

Start the playbook and enjoy your events.
