vtiger CRM <= 5.4.0 (SOAP Services) Multiple SQL Injection Vulnerabilities
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


[-] Software Link:

http://www.vtiger.com/


[-] Affected Versions:

All versions from 5.0.0 to 5.4.0.


[-] Vulnerability Description:

1) The vulnerable code is located in the get_picklists SOAP method defined in /soap/customerportal.php:

1177.   $id = $input_array['id'];
1178.   $sessionid = $input_array['sessionid'];
1179.   $picklist_name = $adb->sql_escape_string($input_array['picklist_name']);
1180.
1181.   if(!validateSession($id,$sessionid))
1182.   return null;
1183.
1184.   $picklist_array = Array();
1185.
1186.   $admin_role = 'H2';
1187.   $userid = getPortalUserid();
1188.   $roleres = $adb->pquery("SELECT roleid from vtiger_user2role where userid = ?", array($userid));
1189.   $RowCount = $adb->num_rows($roleres);
1190.   if($RowCount > 0){
1191.           $admin_role = $adb->query_result($roleres,0,'roleid');
1192.   }
1193.
1194.   $res = $adb->pquery("select vtiger_". $picklist_name.".* from vtiger_". $picklist_name." inner join [...]

User input passed through the "picklist_name" parameter seems to be correctly sanitised by the
sql_escape_string() method, but the vulnerability exists because it's used in the query at line 1194
without single or double quotes. This can be exploited to conduct blind SQL injection attacks.

2) The vulnerable code is located in the get_tickets_list SOAP method defined in /soap/customerportal.php:

654.    $id = $input_array['id'];
655.    $only_mine = $input_array['onlymine'];
656.    $where = $input_array['where']; //addslashes is already added with where condition fields in portal itself
657.    $match = $input_array['match'];
658.    $sessionid = $input_array['sessionid'];
659.
660.    if(!validateSession($id,$sessionid))
661.            return null;
662.
663.    // Prepare where conditions based on search query
664.    $join_type = '';
665.    $where_conditions = '';
666.    if(trim($where) != '') {
667.            if($match == 'all' || $match == '') {
668.                    $join_type = " AND ";
669.            } elseif($match == 'any') {
670.                    $join_type = " OR ";
671.            }
672.            $where = explode("&&&",$where);
673.            $where_conditions = implode($join_type, $where);

[...]

707.    $query = "SELECT vtiger_troubletickets.*, vtiger_crmentity.smownerid,vtiger_crmentity.createdtime, [...]
708.            FROM vtiger_troubletickets
709.            INNER JOIN vtiger_crmentity ON vtiger_crmentity.crmid = vtiger_troubletickets.ticketid AND [...]
710.            WHERE vtiger_troubletickets.parent_id IN (". generateQuestionMarks($entity_ids_list) .")";
711.    // Add conditions if there are any search parameters
712.    if ($join_type != '' && $where_conditions != '') {
713.            $query .= " AND (".$where_conditions.")";
714.    }

User input passed through the "where" parameter isn't properly validated before being
used in a SQL query at line 713. This can be exploited to conduct SQL injection attacks.

3) The vulnerable code is located in the SearchContactsByEmail SOAP method defined in /soap/thunderbirdplugin.php:

186.    function SearchContactsByEmail($username,$password,$emailaddress)
187.    {
188.      if(authentication($username,$password))
189.      {
190.         require_once('modules/Contacts/Contacts.php');
191.    
192.         $seed_contact = new Contacts();
193.         $output_list = Array();
194.    
195.         $response = $seed_contact->get_searchbyemailid($username,$emailaddress);

User input passed through the "emailaddress" parameter isn't properly validated before being used
in a call to the Contacts::get_searchbyemailid() method at line 195. This can be exploited to conduct
SQL injection attacks. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires authentication.

4) The vulnerable code is located in the SearchContactsByEmail SOAP method defined in /soap/vtigerolservice.php:

282.    function SearchContactsByEmail($username,$session,$emailaddress)
283.    {
284.            if(!validateSession($username,$session))
285.            return null;
286.            require_once('modules/Contacts/Contacts.php');
287.    
288.         $seed_contact = new Contacts();
289.         $output_list = Array();
290.    
291.         $response = $seed_contact->get_searchbyemailid($username,$emailaddress);

User input passed through the "emailaddress" parameter isn't properly validated before being used in
a call to the Contacts::get_searchbyemailid() method at line 291. This can be exploited to conduct SQL
injection attacks. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires knowledge of a valid username.
