Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Piwigo, which can be exploited to 
perform Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and Path Traversal attacks.


1) Directory Path Traversal in Piwigo: CVE-2012-2208

1.1 Input passed via the "language" GET parameter to upgrade.php is vulnerable to directory path traversal. The 
directory path passed to the "language" parameter is later used in include() function to include the following files: 
common.lang.php, admin.lang.php, install.lang.php and upgrade.lang.php. 

Under certain conditions this can be exploited to include malicious PHP file and execute arbitrary PHP code. To exploit 
this vulnerability the attacker should create a file with the name from the list above (for example admin.lang.php) in 
the file system (for example in /tmp/) and try to include it via directory traversal.

The following PoC (Proof of Concept) demonstrates the vulnerability:

http://[host]/upgrade.php?language=../../../../../tmp/

/tmp/ directory should contain "admin.lang.php" file that will be used in include() call.


2) Multiple Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) in Piwigo: CVE-2012-2209

2.1 Input passed via the "section" GET parameter to admin.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the 
user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in administrator's browser session in context of 
affected website.

The following PoC (Proof of Concept) demonstrates the vulnerability:

http://[host]/admin.php?page=configuration&section=%22%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert%28document.cookie%29;%3C/script%3E

2.2 Input passed via the "installstatus" GET parameter to admin.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to 
the user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in administrator's browser session in context of 
affected website.

The following PoC demonstrates the vulnerability:

http://[host]/admin.php?page=languages_new&installstatus=%3Cscript%3Ealert%28document.cookie%29;%3C/script%3E

2.3 Input passed via the "theme" GET parameter to admin.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in administrator's browser session in context of 
affected website.

The following PoC demonstrates the vulnerability:

http://[host]/admin.php?page=theme&theme=%3Cscript%3Ealert%28document.cookie%29;%3C/script%3E
