  Advisory: XeoPort <= 0.81 SQL Injection Vulnerability

Release Date: 10/12/2006 Last Modified: 10/12/2006 Author: Tamriel [tamriel at gmx dot net] Application: XeoPort <= 0.81 Risk: Moderate Vendor Status: not contacted Vendor Site: www.xeoman.com | www.xeoman.de

Overview:

Quote from www.xeoman.de:

"XeoPort imports emails from an IMAP or POP3 server into your MySQL database. The text part and/ or the entire message will be imported. An elegant way for Outlook Express users (like me) to extract messages from Microsofts proprietary binary format. I tried Access via Outlook but it turned out to be buggy all the way. The additional script show.php (folder goodie) uses Outlook Express to display the entire message if you want to get your hands on attached files. It can be used to dump the entire MySQL database back into Outlook Express messages providing kind of a backup."

  There are is a SQL injection vulnerability which can be
  exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

  The vulnerability has been discovered in the latest version,
  0.81. Other versions may also be affected.

Details:

  SQL Injection in index.php

  The Input &#96;$xp_body_text&#96; parameter isn&#39;t properly sanitised
  before being used in a SQL query.

  An attacker must send an Email with 7bit encoding to perform
  this attack.

  Some other variables may also be affected.

Proof of Concept:

  Not needed

Solution/Fix:

  You must have register_globals enabled to run this script,
  disable it and edit the source code to ensure that input is
  properly sanitised and change all input variables.

  Use functions like PHP&#39;s htmlentities&#40;&#41; and
  mysql_real_escape_string&#40;&#41; functions.
