Product: GTX CMS - Web Application Basic, Standard and Optima


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


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


Technical Details & Description:
================================
1.1
Multiple remote sql injection web vulnerabilities are detected in the official GTX Content Management System 2013 web 
application.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to unauthorized inject own sql commands to compromise the web-application or 
the web-server dbms.

The sql injection vulnerabilities are located in the vulnerable `objId` and `modId` values of the tagSearchTag module. 
Remote attackers are 
able to inject own sql commands via GET method request to compromise the database management system or cms 
web-application. The inject can 
be done by usage of the executable ajax path via GET method request or by usage of the objId in the tagSearchTag module 
POST method request. 
The severity of the remote sql injection bugs is estimated as high.

Exploitation of the remote sql injection web vulnerability requires no user interaction and a low privileged 
web-application user account.
Successful exploitation of the remote sql injection bug results in database management system and cms or 
web-application compromise.


Vulnerable Module(s):
                                [+] ajax

Vulnerable File(s):
                                [+] tagSearchTag

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] objId
                                [+] modId



1.2
Multiple persistent input validation web vulnerabilities are detected in the official GTX Content Management System 
2013 web application.
The web vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject via POST method own malicious script codes to the online 
service application-side.

The first persistent input validation web vulnerability is located in the ajax `tag-searchTag` module and the connected 
vulnerable 
q parameter. Remote attackers are able to inject own malicious script codes as tag name. The execute occurs in the main 
communication 
module when an user/admin is processing to review the article or comments. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires a 
low privileged 
web-application user account and only low user interaction (view, no click!).

The secound persistent web vulnerability is located in the `linkverzeichnis` (link-directory) add module. Remote 
attackers are able 
to inject own malicious script codes as `Schlüsselworter` (keywords) in the search. The execute occurs in the main link 
directory 
module of the web-application. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires a low privileged web-application user account 
and low or 
medium user interaction (click!).

The third persistent web vulnerability is located in the `Ordnerverwaltung` (Folder/Path Management) module. Remote 
attackers are 
able to manipulate the vulnerable `ordner` name value in the add POST method request. The execute occurs in the main 
path of the 
`persoenliche nachrichten` (private messages) module in the cms control panel. Exploitation of the vulnerability 
requires a low 
privileged web-application user account and medium user interaction (add+click!).

Successful exploitation of the remote vulnerabilities lead to persistent session hijacking (customers), account steal 
via persistent 
web attacks, persistent phishing, persistent redirect to external sources, persistent redirect as file downloads or 
persistent 
manipulation of affected and connected context.


Vulnerable Module(s):
                                [+] ajax/tagSearchTag

Solution - Fix & Patch:
=======================
1.1
The sql injection web vulnerabilities can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the vulnerable `modId` and `objId` 
values in 
the tag search module.

1.2
The persistent input validation web vulnerabilities can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the vulnerable 
ordner name, q and keyword parameters.
Encode the output index of the ordner name in the private messages box and connected resources.
Parse the tag search error output to prevent script code executions.


Security Risk:
==============
1.1
The security risk of the remote sql injection web vulnerabilities are estimated as high(+).

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