Published


Exploitation-Technique:
=======================
Defensiv


Severity:
=========
Critical


Details:
========
Multiple web vulnerabilities are detected in the Free Monthly Websites v2.0 Content Management System.
The first  bypass vulnerability allows attackers to bypass the system web application auth of the admin login.
The secound vulnerability allows to upload for example webshells and access them after upload via unauthorized web 
access.

Vulnerable Module(s):
                                                [+] Login Auth (Admin) - Bypass
                                                [+] Upload File - Unauthorized File Upload & Access


Proof of Concept:
=================
The vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers without required user interaction or privileged application 
user account.
For demonstration or reproduce ...

[ 1 ] Admin Login Bypass

Vulnerable page http://target.com/[path]/admin/index.php
Line 
40 <form name="frm" action="file_io.php" method="post" onSubmit="return chk()">
41 <input type="hidden" name="do_type" value="admin_settings_read">

Vulnerable page http://target.com/[path]/admin/login.php
Line
40 <form name="frm" action="file_io.php" method="post" onSubmit="return chk()">
41 <input type="hidden" name="do_type" value="admin_settings_read">

Vulnerable page http://target.com/[path]/admin/file_io.php

Line
14 if($_REQUEST[do_type]=="admin_settings_read")
15 {
16      $filename="settings/admin_settings.txt";
17
18      if(!$handle = fopen($filename, 'r'))
19      {
20              echo "Cannot open file ($filename)";
21              exit;
22      }
23      $contents = fread($handle, filesize($filename));
24      fclose($handle);
25      $argument_arr=explode("#_1_#",$contents);
26
27      if($argument_arr[0]==$_REQUEST[username] && $argument_arr[1]==$_REQUEST[pass])
28      {
29              $_SESSION[logged_in]=true;
30              header("location:welcome.php");

Based at line 16 we know that Admin Username and Password store in admin_settings.txt NOT on Database! 
So When we login into Admin Panel, file_io.php will Read Valid Username and Password from admin_settings.txt
If you do a direct access to the file admin_settings.txt, The results is 

403 Permission Denied
You do not have permission for this request /admin/settings/admin_settings.txt
