One of the biggest problems that I saw with DNP and WSP still seems to persist in this version; that is the fact that the server site runs as an administrative user. This allows a compromised site running ASP or .net to be able to extract the credentials for this account from the MetaBase.
To make matters worse, if the server si on a domain then they can use tools like Mimikatz to capture domain level credentials and spread filth across your entire windows domain. I would really like to see the sites use non-admin credentials and then talk to a backend service that has the admin access. This would greatly reduce the risk associated with using this product.
Additionally, this product should handle filesystem permissions like Plesk does; that is lockdown filesystem access for the SCP_IUSRS group so that the group has no access to anything they do not need, and there should be a system in place where you can tell SCP what custom permissions it should set for this group on third party objects that SCP doesn’t just know about.
The lack of these two things is preventing us from deploying this product.
Well as i said, you can also configure it with “secure” mode and enter a admin level user / pass credentials in the database, that way your application pool user has no administrative rights and it uses the login on cmd / powershell.
though personally thats less secure (as mssql database hanging infront of a public portal –> more easy to grab your details then trying to hack a site that no1 besides portal/local ip can load, with it’s application pool username + password while hacking from another site (that has no rights but it’s own folder at all asp.net full trust will still not get you inside the SolidCP Server files if you secured it properly.
but besides that point, everyone can lock down the SolidCP Server module –> even with Windows Firewall and bindings, only the Portal needs access to it (which runs on normal privs)
In the end the basics stay the same as any other panel. we really can’t get around that.
And as i also shown you: the setups are not vulnerable for the tools you mentioned, no server is that is properly setup.
