EmpireCMS Template Parser Remote PHP Code Execution Vulnerability
---------------------------------

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

Empire CMS is a widely used CMS in china. Official website is www.phome.net.
I have found a remote PHP code-execution vulnerability in EmpireCMS 6.6 (the lastest version).
This issue occurs in the application's template parser.
An
 attacker can exploit this issue by enticing an unsuspecting victim to 
install a malicious template,can inject and execute arbitrary malicious 
PHP code in the context of the webserver process. 
This may facilitate a compromise of the application and the underlying system; other attacks are also possible.

[-] details :

Here is a function for template parser in /e/class/connect.php
---------------------------------
function ReplaceListVars($no,$listtemp,$subnews,$subtitle,$formatdate,$url,$haveclass=0,$r,$field,$docode=0){
    global $empire,$public_r,$class_r,$class_zr,$fun_r,$dbtbpre,$emod_r,$class_tr,$level_r,$navclassid,$etable_r;
    if($haveclass)
    {
        $add=sys_ReturnBqClassname($r,$haveclass);
    }
    if(empty($r[oldtitle]))
    {
        $r[oldtitle]=$r[title];
    }
    if($docode==1)
    {       
                //here is the vul code
                //$listtemp is passed to function eval and not checked. 
        $listtemp=stripSlashes($listtemp);
        eval($listtemp);
    }
    
        ......
}
---------------------------------

Many other files used this function,here is one place:

---------------------------------
// /e/action/ListInfo/index.php line 120

//get template from datebase which may contain PHP code we have injected into database.

$tempr=$empire->fetch1("select
 tempid,temptext,subnews,listvar,rownum,showdate,modid,subtitle,docode 
from ".GetTemptb("enewslisttemp")." where tempid='$tempid'");

......


$listtemp=$tempr[temptext];
$rownum=$tempr[rownum];
if(empty($rownum))
{$rownum=1;}
$formatdate=$tempr[showdate];
$subnews=$tempr[subnews];
$subtitle=$tempr[subtitle];
$docode=$tempr[docode];
$modid=$tempr[modid];
$listvar=str_replace('[!--news.url--]',$public_r[newsurl],$tempr[listvar]);
// $listvar contain PHP code we have injected

......

while($r=$empire->fetch($sql))
{
    $repvar=ReplaceListVars($no,$listvar,$subnews,$subtitle,$formatdate,$url,$have_class,$r,$ret_r,$docode);
    //here lead to execute php code
