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


Months ago I discovered a flaw hackers can use to access Samsung’s and LG Electronics internal bug tracking and project management instances running on Jira. The flaw only takes a couple of commands to potentially access intranets, cause XSS and anything that SSRF can cause, including something such as,

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?

Umm, I guess you're right, pinging is not cool, neither is causing XSS (right?).

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.

Samsung's Tizen OS Bug Tracking Dashboard


In the process of researching a performance bug of Tizen OS (, I came to know about The dashboard over has severe SSRF vulnerability.

Proof of concept for XSS

Using an image metadata editor I altered EXIF metadata and crafted a malicious SVG which lead to XSS.

The payload was,
<svg xmlns="" onload="alert(document.domain)"/>

Using Jiraffe, 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.



Google it. I'm not gonna deep dive into how big LG actually is.

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


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.
