[SOJOBO-ADV-13-01] - Zenphoto 1.4.5.2 multiple vulnerabilities

I. * Information *
==================
Name : Zenphoto 1.4.5.2 multiple vulnerabilities
Software : Zenphoto 1.4.5.2 and possibly below.
Vendor Homepage : http://www.zenphoto.org/
Vulnerability Type : SQL Injection, Reflected Cross-Site Scripting
Severity : Medium (3/5)
Advisory Reference : SOJOBO-ADV-13-01 (http://www.enkomio.com/Advisories)
Credits: Sojobo dev team
Description: Multiple vulnerabilities (SQL Injection and Reflected Cross Site Scripting) was discovered during the 
testing of Sojobo, Static Analysis Tool.

II. * Details *
===============
A) Cross Site Scripting in mergedRSS.php [Impact: 3/5]

Follow a trace to reach the vulnerable code.

File: zp-core\zp-extensions\mergedRSS.php
43: $MergedRSS = new MergedRSS($feeds, strip_tags(get_language_string($gallery->getTitle(), $locale)), FULLWEBPATH, 
strip_tags(get_language_string($gallery->getDesc(), $locale)), $feed_date);
..
46: $MergedRSS->export(false, true, 20);
..
98: public function export($return_as_string = true, $output = false, $limit = null) {
..
140: $xml .= "\t<atom:link href=\"http://".$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']."\"; rel=\"self\" 
type=\"application/rss+xml\" />\n";
..
165: if ($output) { echo $xml; }

The variable '$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']' is considered a tainted input and can be manipulated in order to insert valid HTML 
code.

B) Sql Injection in wordpress_import.php [Impact: 1/5]

This vulnerability has various precondition that need to be satisfy in order to be exploited. Admin rights are 
necessary, also
the user must specify a valid hostname, username and password database connection (can be obtained via password 
guessing). Due 
to this precondition the impact was lowerd to Very Low. 

Follow a trace to reach the vulnerable code.

File: zp-core\zp-extensions\wordpress_import.php
76: if(isset($_REQUEST['dbname']) || isset($_REQUEST['dbuser']) || isset($_REQUEST['dbpass']) || 
isset($_REQUEST['dbhost'])) {
..
82: $wp_prefix = sanitize($_REQUEST['tableprefix']);
..
120: if(!isset($_GET['refresh'])) {
121: $cats = wp_query_full_array("SELECT * FROM ".wp_prefix('terms',$wp_prefix)." as terms, 
".wp_prefix('term_taxonomy',$wp_prefix)." as tax WHERE tax.taxonomy = 'category' AND terms.term_id = 
tax.term_id",$wpdbconnection);
..
55: function wp_query_full_array($sql,$wpconnection) {
56:             $result = mysql_query($sql,$wpconnection) or die(gettext("Query failed : ") . mysql_error());

where 'wp_prefix' is:

67: function wp_prefix($tablename,$wp_prefix) {
68:     return '`'.$wp_prefix.$tablename.'`';
69: }

the function 'sanitize' is:

File: zp-core\functions-common.php
145: function sanitize($input_string, $sanitize_level=3) {
..
152: $output_string = sanitize_string($input_string, $sanitize_level);
..
177: function sanitize_string($input, $sanitize_level) {
..
192: case 3:
..
194: return strip_tags($input);

'strip_tags' doesn't validate against SQL Injection vulnerabilities. 
In order to exploit this vulnerability the user must be logged as admin, this precondition severely limits the impact.
