INDEX I. ABOUT THE APPLICATION II. DESCRIPTION III. ANALYSIS IV. SAMPLE CODE V. FIX I. ABOUT THE APPLICATION ________________________ AlstraSoft E-Friends is an online social networking software that allows you to start your own site just like Friendster and MySpace. Other versions could be vulnerable. II. DESCRIPTION _______________ Many parameters are not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries and from the PHP's upload functions. III. ANALYSIS _____________ Summary: A) Arbitrary File Upload B) Multiple Local File Inclusion C) Multiple SQL Injection A) Arbitrary File Upload ________________________ An error in the tribe.php script allows upload of files with arbitrary extensions to a folder inside the web root when "act" is set to "show" and "trb_id" is set to a valid group identification value. The uploaded files will be copied into the "groups/group_name" directory, where group_name can be obtained from the vulnerable page. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP code by uploading a PHP file. Example: If the vulnerable page is the following: index.php?mode=tribe&act=show&trb_id=103 and the group_name associated to trb_id 103 is "prcd", then the malicious file under the array $_FILE['file'] will be copied into the groups/prcd directory. B) Multiple Local File Inclusion ________________________________ Input passed to the "lang" parameter in updatePage.php, getStartOptions.php is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources via directory traversal attacks and URL-encoded NULL bytes. Successful exploitation requires that register_globlas is set to On. It is very probable that other PHP files are vulnerable to local file inclusion vulnerability. C) Multiple SQL Injection _________________________ The parameters taken from the cookies are not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code. Some parameters are taken from the classic $_POST/$_GET array and are not properly sanitised before being used in other SQL queries. Successful exploitation requires that magic_quotes_gpc is set to Off. IV.
