[waraxe-2007-SA#056] - Another Sql Injection in NukeSentinel 2.5.11

Author: Janek Vind "waraxe" Date: 27. September 2007 Location: Estonia, Tartu Web: http://www.waraxe.us/advisory-56.html

Target software description: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Developer: http://www.nukescripts.net

NukeSentinel is anti-hacking sofware, used for protection phpnuke against various security-related attacks.

Vulnerabilities: Critical Sql Injection in "nukesentinel.php" ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's look at script "includes/nukesentinel.php" source code:

------------>[source code]<------------

function is_god($axadmin) { global $db, $prefix, $aname; $tmpadm = base64_decode($axadmin); $tmpadm = explode(":", $tmpadm); $aname = $tmpadm[0]; $apwd = $tmpadm[1]; if(!empty($aname) AND !empty($apwd)) { $aname = trim($aname); $apwd = trim($apwd); $admrow = $db->sql_fetchrow($db->sql_query("SELECT * FROM `".$prefix."_authors` WHERE `aid`='$aname'"));

------------>[/source code]<-----------

So as seen in code snippet above, data from "base64_decode()" function is used in sql query without any sanityze. Now is the question, which part of the code uses this function. Here is the answer:

------------>[source code]<------------

// AUTHOR Protection $blocker_row = $blocker_array[5]; if($blocker_row['activate'] > 0) { if(isset($op) AND ($op=="mod_authors" OR $op=="modifyadmin" OR $op=="UpdateAuthor" OR $op=="AddAuthor" OR $op=="deladmin2" OR $op=="deladmin" OR $op=="assignstories" OR $op=="deladminconf") AND !is_god($_COOKIE['admin'])) { block_ip($blocker_row); } } }

------------>[/source code]<-----------

It's easy to see, that $_COOKIE['admin'] variable will be used as argument for "is_god()" function. And we have another critical sql injetion in place. I have written proof-of-concept blind injection exploit for this specific case and it's working flawlessly. Happy news to potential victims - developer has allready patched this security hole in NukeSentinel with releasing new version - 2.5.12

//-----> See ya soon and have a nice day ;) <-----//

How to fix: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NukeSentinel's new version 2.5.12 is patched, so download it A.S.A.P.
