Kong & Konga Exploitation & Hardening 20 min read - May 10, 2023 In this article, we discuss our team's journey in exploring and identifying vulnerabilities in Kong and Konga, two open-source API management tools. By dissecting the software and discovering potential security issues, we contribute to a more secure implementation of these tools. The article emphasizes responsible disclosure, hardening processes, and the importance of continuously improving software security. It shares our experiences, challenges, and insights, while highlighting the need for increased awareness and better vulnerability management practices in the open-source community.
Php-Internalog, Introspection Applied to 0day Research 14 min read - Nov 18, 2022 For web 0day research, it is important to get as much insights on your target as you can. Simply fuzzing around and reading the responses or logs is simply not enough. Php-internalog is our attempt at gaining vision in the core actions a php server can take. This article includes all our iterations over this idea, and opens on a new approach, and an... Already existing tool! But with a different use than its intended purpose.
Pre-Auth Remote Code Execution - Web Page Test 17 min read - Sep 23, 2022 While working at ManoMano, I spent some time auditing various software we rely on for end2end tests. During this, I stumbled upon Web Page Test, a software that will query and render a website with a headless browser in order to audit its performance, usability, loading time, etc. Back then, our tech ecosystem was relying on this, but we, at the Security Team explained why this software seemed way too prone to security issues. One week later, Web Page Test was gone because 'a pre-auth SSRF has been found in no time'. But as the engineering crew trusted us on this, we really wanted them to know that they trusted us for good reasons. So during my next R&D week (1 out of 4, so yup, this was my free time), I spent a few more days to turn this SSRF into a preauth RCE, including ways to exploit both WPT master and workers.

1001 ways to PWN prod - A tale of 60 RCE in 60 minutes 36 min read - Jul 14, 2022 In May 2022, I've been invited to give a talk to the HitchHack event in Vannes. This is the same event I gave my very first talk exactly 4 years ago. To celebrate, we'll go through many exploit chains I went through, as always, sharing knowledge and fun at the same time! This is basically a huge bag of ideas, with over 70 methods to gain remote code execution from nothing. Enjoy!
