How I Hacked Samsung’s Tizen OS & LG Electronics Private Project Management Instances

Using Jiraffe security tool to find low-hanging fruits



The bug is still out there. I reported the vulnerability, and the usual BS followed which has led me to write this blog.

Usual Boring SSRF, Right?

But, when discovered on a cloud instance though, things get a little more interesting as attackers can access the metadata instance, available via a APIPA range IP address over HTTP —, and accessible only from the target.

Proof of concept for XSS

The payload was,

Using Jiraffe — An one stop security tool for exploiting Jira instances, I was able to quickly find that the server is hosted over Amazon AWS (fucking Bezos!) and was able to … well, I immediately stopped all testing as I didn’t want to break any rules of engagement, quickly sending in a report about my findings.


You should check out Jiraffe over @0x48piraj/Jiraffe or install it using pip —

$ pip install jiraffe


I actually am not going to disclose the domain or the bug exactly because they sent a email just recently,

Dear PIYUSH RAJ,As we said, LG CNS is a separate company from us.
Thus, we don't also have a contact point.
We'll contact the relevant department.
Thank you.
Best Regards,

I will update the blog once the issue is resolved.
