The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered multiple local command injection vulnerabilities in the mobile 
Simple-Transfer Photo 2.2.1 iOS app (Apple - iPad|iPhone).

2013-05-03:     Public Disclosure


Affected Products:
Apple AppStore
Product: SimpleTransfer Photo iOS 2.2.1



Multiple local command injection web vulnerabilities are detected  in the mobile SimpleTransfer Photo 2.2.1 iOS app 
(Apple - iPad|iPhone).
The vulnerability allows to inject local commands via vulnerable system values to compromise the apple mobile iOS 

The first vulnerability is located in the index module when processing to load the unique ipad or iphone device name. 
Local attackers can change the ipad or iphone device name to system specific commands and file requests to provoke 
the execution when processing to watch the main index photo listing. The execution of the script code occurs in the 
header were the device name web context is located when processing to display the device name in the index listing.

The secound vulnerability is located in the index module when processing to load the ipad or iphone photo album folder 
Local attackers can change the ipad or iphone photo album names to system specific commands and file requests to 
the execution when processing to watch the main index album listing. The execution of the script code occurs in the 
folder name web context when processing to display the vulnerable name value listing.

Exploitation of the web vulnerability requires an application user account (standard) and low or medium user 
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results unauthorized execution of system specific commands and file or 
path requests.

Vulnerable Application(s):
                                [+] SimpleTransfer Photo 2.2.1 - ITunes or AppStore (Apple)

                                [+] Device Name
                                [+] Album Folder/Path Name

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] Index Listing - Header
                                [+] Album Listing - Name

Local Device Name Command Inject:       (http://localhost/rambax/)

1.2     PoC:  Album Name - Photo Listing

Local Album Name Command Inject:        (http://localhost:8080/rambax/album/D64E64A5-7C0B-4530-B4F5-7406D5BDF168)

The vulnerabilities can be patched by a secure parse of the album name and device name parameter.
Encode the strings and set an own exception-handling to prevent against future command injection attacks.

The security risk of the local command injection web vulnerabilities are estimated as high(-).
