Scanning for HTTP/2 with Rumble
This Tuesday, Jonathan Looney, a researcher at Netflix, disclosed seven different ways to break common HTTP/2 protocol implementations, while an eighth issue was disclosed by Piotr Sikora of Google. These issues could be used to exhaust the resources of affected HTTP/2 implementations.
Shortly after the HTTP/2 issues were disclosed, a Rumble user reached out asking if we could help identify HTTP/2 endpoints on their network. We are happy to announce that as of version
0.8.14, the Rumble Agent and runZero Scanner now probe for HTTP/2 automatically, recording the protocol and the HTTP/2 specific responses (status, headers, body). For users of the Rumble Network Discovery web console, HTTP/2 enabled nodes can be identified by using Inventory search term
protocol:http2. Users of the command-line runZero Scanner can view the
assets.html report and search for nodes with the
http2 protocol flagged.
As an alternative to Rumble, the Nmap Security Scanner can also identify HTTP/2 implementations via the
tls-nextprotoneg NSE. The CVEs for the eight HTTP/2 issues are CVE-2019-9511, CVE-2019-9512, CVE-2019-9513, CVE-2019-9514, CVE-2019-9515, CVE-2019-9516, CVE-2019-9517, and CVE-2019-9518. The CERT/CC Wiki provides a matrix of affected vendors, including both software packages and service providers.
As always, if you have questions, feedback, or suggestions please reach out!
