Description

TITLE: CRE Loaded "files.php" File Upload Security Issue

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID: SA18648

VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/18648/

CRITICAL: Highly critical

IMPACT: System access

WHERE: >From remote

SOFTWARE: CRE Loaded 6.x http://secunia.com/product/7173/

DESCRIPTION: kaneda has discovered a security issue in CRE Loaded, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a vulnerable system.

The problem is that it is possible to access the "/admin/htmlarea/popups/file/files.php" script directly without being authenticated as the administrator. This can be exploited to upload arbitrary files to a location inside the web root (e.g. a PHP script), and create or delete arbitrary files and directories.

The security issue has been confirmed in version 6.15. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION: Restrict access to the "/admin/htmlarea/popups/file/files.php" script.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY: kaneda
