Yan Xing Product: Wireless Photo Transfer - iOS Mobile Web Application 3.0
A local file include web vulnerability has been discovered in the official wireless photo transfer mobile v3.0 iOS application. The file include vulnerability allows remote attackers to unauthorized include local file/path requests or system specific path commands to compromise the mobile web-application.
The web vulnerability is located in the `album-title` value of the `file upload` module. Remote attackers are able to inject own files with malicious `filename` values in the `file upload` POST method request to compromise the mobile web-application. The local file/path include execution occcurs in the index file dir listing and sub folders of the wifi interface. The attacker is able to inject the lfi payload by usage of the wifi interface or local file sync function. Attackers are also able to exploit the filename issue in combination with persistent injected script code to execute different malicious attack requests. The attack vector is located on the application-side of the wifi service and the request method to inject is POST.
The security risk of the local file include vulnerability is estimated as high with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 6.5. Exploitation of the local file include web vulnerability requires no user interaction or privileged web-application user account. Successful exploitation of the local file include vulnerability results in mobile application compromise or connected device component compromise.
Request Method(s): [+] [POST]
Vulnerable Module(s): [+] Submit (Upload)
Vulnerable Parameter(s): [+] filename (album-title)
Affected Module(s): [+] Index File Dir Listing (http://localhost:80/)
The local file include web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privileged application user account or user interaction. For security demonstration or to reproduce the security vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.
PoC: #1 Index File Dir Listing (album-title)

Reference(s): http://localhost:80/groups http://localhost:80/upload.html
The vulnerability can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the vulnerable album-title value. Encode also the local app input field for sync. Restrict the filename input and disallow special chars to prevent further arbitrary file upload attacks. Filter and encode also the vulnerable output values in the mobile wifi interface (file dir) application.
The security risk of the local file include web vulnerability in the wifi network interface album-title value is estimated as high. (CVSS 6.5)
