Technical Details & Description:  
================================  
1.1  
A local file include web vulnerability has been discovered in the official iStArtApp FileXChange v6.2 iOS mobile web-application.  
A file include web vulnerability allows remote attackers to unauthorized include local file/path requests or system specific path   
commands to compromise the web-application or mobile device.  
  
The web vulnerability is located in the `filename` value of the `Upload a File` module. Remote attackers are able to inject own files with   
malicious `filename` value in the upload POST method request to compromise the mobile web-application. The attack vector is persistent and   
the request method is POST. The local file/path include execution occcurs in the main index file dir list. The security risk of the local   
file include web vulnerability is estimated as high(+) with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 7.5(+)|(-)7.6.  
  
Exploitation of the local file include web vulnerability requires no user interaction but a privileged web-application user account with   
low user auth. Successful exploitation of the local file include web vulnerability results in mobile application or connected device   
component compromise.  
  
Request Method(s):  
[+] [POST]  
  
Vulnerable Module(s):  
[+] Upload a File > Submit  
  
Vulnerable Parameter(s):  
[+] filename  
  
Affected Module(s):  
[+] Index File Dir List (http://localhost:8888/)  
  
  
  
1.2  
An arbitrary file upload web vulnerability has been discovered in the official iStArtApp FileXChange v6.2 iOS mobile web-application.  
The arbitrary file upload issue allows remote attackers to upload files with multiple extensions to bypass the web-server or system validation.  
  
The vulnerability is located in the `Upload a File` module. Remote attackers are able to upload a php or js web-shells by renaming the file with   
multiple extensions to bypass the file restriction mechanism. The attacker uploads for example a web-shell with the following name and extension   
`test.txt.html.php.js.aspx.txt`. After the upload the attacker needs to open the file with the path value in the web application. He deletes the   
.txt file extension and can access the application with elevated executable access rights. The security risk of the arbitrary file upload web   
vulnerability is estimated as high(+) with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 7.2(+)|(-)7.3.  
  
Exploitation of the arbitrary file upload web vulnerability requires no user interaction or privileged application user account with password.  
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in unauthorized file access because of a compromise after the upload of web-shells.  
  
Request Method(s):  
[+] [POST]  
  
Vulnerable Module(s):  
[+] Select File > Upload  
  
Vulnerable Parameter(s):  
[+] filename (multiple extensions)  
  
Affected Module(s):  
[+] Index File Dir List (http://localhost:8888/)  
  
  
  
1.3  
A local command/path injection web vulnerabilities has been discovered in the official iStArtApp FileXChange v6.2 iOS mobile web-application.  
A command inject vulnerability allows attackers to inject local commands via vulnerable system values to compromise the apple mobile iOS application.  
  
The vulnerability is located in the vulnerable `devicename` value of the wifi fapplication. Local attackers are able to inject own malicious   
system specific commands or path value requests via devicename value. The injection requires an active sync of the device information by new connections.  
The execution of the local command inject via devicename value on sync occurs in the header loction of all interface sites. The security risk of the local   
command/path inject vulnerability is estimated as high(-) with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 5.7(+)|(-)5.8.  
  
Exploitation of the command/path inject vulnerability requires a low privileged iOS device account with restricted access and no user interaction.   
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in unauthorized execution of system specific commands and unauthorized path value requests to   
compromise the mobile iOS application or the connected device components.  
  
Request Method(s):  
[+] Sync  
  
Vulnerable Parameter(s):  
[+] devicename  
  
Affected Module(s):  
[+] Index File Dir List (http://localhost:8888/x)  
[+] All Interface Header Sites (http://localhost:8888/)  
  
  
  
1.4  
A local command/path injection web vulnerabilities has been discovered in the official iStArtApp FileXChange v6.2 iOS mobile web-application.  
A command inject vulnerability allows attackers to inject local commands via vulnerable system values to compromise the apple mobile iOS application.  
  
The vulnerability is located in the vulnerable `foldername` value of the wifi file dir list module. Local attackers are able to inject own malicious   
system specific commands or path value requests in the vulnerable foldername value. The injection requires an active sync with the wifi app stored folders.  
The execution of the local command inject via foldername value on sync occurs in the file dir index list of the main upload path. The security risk of   
the local command/path inject vulnerability is estimated as high(-) with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 5.6(+)|(-)5.7.  
  
Exploitation of the command/path inject vulnerability requires a low privileged iOS device account with restricted access and no user interaction.   
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in unauthorized execution of system specific commands and unauthorized path value requests to   
compromise the mobile iOS application or the connected device components.  
  
Request Method(s):  
[+] Sync  
  
Vulnerable Parameter(s):  
[+] foldername (path value)   
  
Affected Module(s):  
[+] Index File Dir List (http://localhost:8888/)  
[+] Sub Folder/Category File Dir List (http://localhost:8888/)

Solution - Fix & Patch:  
=======================  
1.1  
The file include web vulnerability can be patched by a secure parse of the filename value in the POST method upload request.  
Parse also the vulnerable index output listing with the filename value to prevent further execution of injected file requests or path values.  
  
1.2  
The arbitrary file upload web vulnerability can be patched by a secure encode and filter restriction of the filename value.  
Disallow multiple extensions of files, encode and parse the filename again.  
  
1.3  
The local command injection web vulnerability can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the vulnerable device name info value.  
Encode the sync input of the device name and setup a own secure classe to encode all output of device information values.  
  
  
1.4  
Parse and encode the foldername value in the add via sync POST method request. Prepare to encode and filter also the foldername oputput listing in the index- or sub-dir.  
  
  
Security Risk:  
==============  
1.1  
The security risk of the local file include web vulnerability is estimated as critical.  
  
1.2  
The security risk of the arbitrary file upload web vulnerability is estimated as high.  
  
1.3  
The security risk of the first command inject web vulnerability in the device name value is estimated as high(-).  
  
1.4  
The security risk of the second command inject web vulnerability in the folder/path value via sync is estimated as high.
