URGENT/11 detection tool by Armis
urgent11-detector is a tool to detect whether a device is running the Interpeak IPnet TCP/IP stack, and is thus at risk from the URGENT/11 vulnerabilities.
In light of recent discoveries (see https://armis.com/urgent11), we decided to develop a tool designed to detect whether a device is using Interpeak's IPnet TCP/IP stack, regardless of the RTOS that powers it. The IPnet TCP/IP stack is the native, built-in stack for VxWorks since version 6.5, but it has been also been supported by a wide array of RTOSs in the past. Detecting the underlying TCP/IP stack used by a device is a non-trivial task, and so by using this tool one can identify devices that are vulnerable to URGENT/11 vulnerabilities.
How does it work?
This tool implements 4 unique methods of detection in the form of a TCP and ICMP fingerprints to a target host. By calculating the sum of all the methods scores, we can determine with high precision whether a device runs an OS that relies on the IPnet TCP/IP stack and whether this OS is VxWorks. Moreover, we also test whether the host is vulnerable to CVE-2019-12258, which is one of the URGENT/11 vulnerabilities that affects all VxWorks versions that use IPnet. If a device is detected as running IPnet on VxWorks, and is NOT vulnerable to this CVE, one can deduce this device has been patched against the URGENT/11 vulnerabilities.
Install the tool directly with pip3:
pip3 install urgent11-detector
And than run it like this:
urgent11-detector IP PORT
Alternatively, you can install the dependencies and run it manually
./urgent11-detector.py IP PORT
My head hurts.. can you simplify?
Assuming you have python3 installed - the only dependencies are scapy and python-iptables. Install them using:
pip3 install scapy python-iptables
In addition, urgent11-detector currently supports running on a Linux setup exclusively.
