Affected Product(s):  
Trung Pham  
Product: iUSB - Mobile Web Application (Wifi) 1.2  
Exploitation Technique:  
Severity Level:  
Technical Details & Description:  
A code execution vulnerability has been discovered in the official iUSB v1.2 iOS mobile web-application.  
The issue allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary codes to compromise the mobile wifi web-application.  
The issue is located in the `path` value of the `create folder` input field. Remote attackers with access to the   
wifi web interface are able to execute system specific codes by usage of the vulnerable `create folder` function.  
The execution of the injected code occurs on the application in the iUSB wifi interface index item listing module.  
The attack vector is located on the application-side of the app and the request method to execute the code is POST.  
The security risk of the code execution vulnerability is estimated as high with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring   
system) count of 8.7. Exploitation of the code execution vulnerability requires no privileged application user account   
or user interaction. Successful exploitation of the code execution vulnerability results in mobile application compromise   
and affected or connected device component compromise.  
Request Method(s):  
[+] POST  
Vulnerable Module(s):  
[+] Create Folder  
Vulnerable Parameter(s):  
[+] path  
Affected Module(s):  
[+] iUSB File Dir Listing  
Proof of Concept (PoC):  
The code execution vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privileged application user account or user interaction.

Solution - Fix & Patch:  
The vulnerability can be patched by a secure restriction of the create folder name input field. Restrict the input by disallow of special chars.  
Encode and parse the vulnerable path value that runs throught eh creat POST method request. Filter and parse also the iUSB file dir listing output with the vulnerable name value.  
Security Risk:  
The security risk of the of the code execution vulnerability in the create folder function of iUSB is estimated as high. (CVSS 8.8)
