Affected        Software: PHPsFTPd
Software        Version: 0.2 -> 0.4
Software        URL: http://phpsftpd.sourceforge.net/
Attack:         Admin password leak


about PHPsFTPd:
PHPsFTPd is a web based administration and configuration interface
for the SLimFTPd ftp serverIt can be used an any http server that
suports PHP and does not need a database or adittional php modules,
only SlimFTPD It allows the administrators of the ftp server to
configurate it from within this interface as opposed to its native
ascii conf.file It shows statistics about the users that accesed
the server , the files that were downloaded , server breakdowns etc


Hi there again

during a look at the code of the PHPsFTPd Project i find out that it
is possible to get the Admins Username & Password. This happens
when we send a specially crafted POST Request to the user.php script.
The reason of the leakness is at the inc.login.php script.
When you take a look at the code below you see that the code will exit
if there is no logged session or we dont try to logout.
But when we POST the do_login var with some stuff in it execution goes on.


snipped from inc.login.php


//login form
if (!isset($_SESSION['logged']) && !isset($_GET['do_logout']) &&
!isset($_POST['do_login'])) {
                echo "<p>&nbsp;</p>
                <form action='index.php' method='post'>
                <img src=gfx/ico_notice.gif align=absmiddle> Please login with admin
pass<br>
                <input class=td type='password' name='pass'>
                <input class=button type='submit' name='login' value='Login'>
                </form>
                ";
                die;
}





exploit:
Print the admins username & password
