Exploiting X11 Unauthenticated Access - Via - PTExperts
Yo' Greetings Citizens,

Exploiting X11 Unauthenticated Access - Via - PTExperts

In this article, we are going to see how to exploit the x11Server Unauthenticated Access vulnerability which is associated with the CVE-1999-0526.

How bad is this vulnerability?

The remote X11 server accepts connections from anywhere one can get an Internet connection. It is responsible for access to the graphics cards, the input devices, and the display screen on either computer or wireless device.

However, it is not an entirely secure system. For example, a Cyber attacker can connect to the server to eavesdrop on the keyboard and the mouse of a user utilizing the remote host. It is even possible for an attacker to grab a screenshot of the remote host and exploit it for malicious purposes. As a result, a Cyber attacker can gain access to the username and password of a user that is logged onto the remote host.

What is X11?

The X Window System (aka X) is a windowing system for bitmap displays, which is common on UNIX-based operating systems. X provides the basic framework for a GUI based environment. X also does not mandate the user interface – individual programs handle this.

Vulnerable Lab Setup: We will first create a vulnerable X11 server for our testing. To do this, we need a 14.04 system as can be seen below that we have installed the Ubuntu in VirtualBox...++..

Thank You For Your Time, Citizens. I hope that you have a great and cyber-secure day!

Thank You Citizen,
The Administration
