Google Dork: inurl:"user/auth/forgot"

Date: 22/12/2010

Author: MyDoom ( Moroccan Hacker )


Software Link: http://

Version: Social Engine 4.x (should work on previous versions but no tested)

Tested on: Windows 7 - Linux 3.6.33 2010 - Linux 3.6.18 2010 -

Windows Server 2003

Greetz to : ALBoraaq Hackers ;) - Especially T3es

Vulnerable Javascript Source Code:

      window.addEvent('domready', function() { // wait for the content


                     // remove that line to select all files, or edit it, add more items
                     typeFilter: {
                           'Music (*.mp3,*.m4a,*.aac,*.mp4)': '*.mp3; *.m4a; *.aac; *.mp4'


The File filter used in the code don't check the uploaded file but only set the type of files that can be veiwed in the upload window so if we type . in the filename we will see all others file and then we can upload any type of file.
