Abstract:
=========
The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered multiple Web Vulnerabilities in eSyndiCat Pro v2.4.1 Service & 
Management System.  


Report-Timeline:

Status:
========
Published


Exploitation-Technique:
=======================
Remote


Severity:
=========
High


Details:
========
1.1
Multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities are detected in the eSyndiCat Pro v2.4.1 Service Application & Management System.
The vulnerability allows an attacker (remote) to inject/execute own sql commands on the affected application dbms. 
The vulnerabilities are located in multiple application files when processing to request (POST) via cvs importer the 
Delimiter or when processing to add rss feeds with manipulated Number of items. Successful exploitation of the 
vulnerability 
results in dbms, service & application compromise. 

Vulnerable Module(s):
                                [+] CVS Import - Delimiter
                                [+] RSS ADD - Number of items

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] num & delimiter num


1.2
Multiple persistent input validation vulnerabilities are detected in the eSyndiCat Pro v2.4.1 Service Application CMS. 
The bugs allow remote attackers to implement/inject malicious script code on the application side (persistent). 
The persistent vulnerabilities are located  in the input fields of the account username, new listing descriptionname & 
controller suggest name. The persistent script code (HTML/JS) get executed out of the listing or username profile 
webpage 
context. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to session hijacking (manager/admin) or stable 
(persistent) 
context manipulation. Exploitation requires low user inter action & low privileged user account. 

Vulnerable Module(s): 
                        [+] Accounts > Username
                        [+] New Listings > Description of the Listing
                        [+] Controller > Suggest Listing & Inputs


1.3
A cross site request forgery vulnerability is detected in eSyndiCat Pro v2.4.1 Service Application & Management System. 
 
The bugs allow remote attackers with high required user inter action to edit user accounts. Successful exploitation can 
lead to account creation. To exploit the issue the attacker need to create a manipulated copy the edit user mask/form. 
Inside of the document the remote can implement his own values for the update because of no form or token protection. 
When admin get now forced to execute the script via link he is executing the new value on the update of the application 
if his session is not expired.

Vulnerable Module(s):
                        [+] Add Administrator Accounts - Form


Proof of Concept:
=================
1.1
The sql injection vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers with privileged user account & without user 
inter action.

1.2
The persistent input validation vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers with low required user inter 
action.
For demonstration or reproduce ...

1.3
The cross site request forgery vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with high required user inter action.
For demonstration or reproduce ...

Risk:
=====
1.1
The security risk of the sql injection vulnerabilities are estimated as high(-).

1.2
The security risk of the persistent input validation vulnerabilities are estimated as medium(+).

1.3
The security risk of the cross site request forgery vulnerability is estimated as low(+).
