Abstract Advisory Information:
==============================
The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered a persistent validation web vulnerability in the official Private 
Photo+Video v1.1 Pro iOS mobile web-application.

2014-04-01:     Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory)


Discovery Status:
=================
Published


Affected Product(s):
====================
Free Music Download, Pro Downloader, Player & Lite Manager
Product: Private Photo+Video Pro - iOS Mobile Web Application 1.1


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


Severity Level:
===============
Medium


Technical Details & Description:
================================
A persistent input validation web vulnerability has been discovered  in the official Private Photo+Video v1.1 Pro iOS 
mobile web-application.
The bug allows remote attackers to inject own malicious persistent script codes to the application-side of the 
vulnerable service.

The vulnerability is located in the name value of the add `New Album` input module. Remote attackers are able to inject 
own malicious 
script codes to the album name value input. The attacker vector is persistent and the injetction request method is GET. 
The inject can 
be done by an album rename/add via mobile sync or by the web-interface via new album function. The security risk of the 
persistent web 
vulnerability is estimated as medium(+) with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.7(+)|(-)3.8.

Exploitation of the persistent web vulnerability requires low user interaction and a local low privileged mobile 
application account 
or access to the local web interface service. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in persistent 
session hijacking (customers), 
account steal via persistent web attacks, persistent phishing or persistent manipulation of module context.

Request Method(s):
                                [+] GET

Vulnerable Module(s):
                                [+] New Album

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] albumname > path value

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] FileManager > Path Dir Index Listing


Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
The persistent input validation web vulnerability in the album name value can be exploited by local attackers via album 
sync but also by 
remote attackers via web interface. In both cases low user interaction is required to exploit the web vulnerability. To 
reproduce the issue 
or for security demonstration follow the provided information and steps below to continue.

                                </div>

                                </div>
                        </div>
                </div>

Note: The issue can be exploited by local attackers with physical device access (album sync) but also by remote 
attackers (wifi ui) via the `add new albums` module.

Solution - Fix & Patch:
=======================
The vulnerability can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the albumname sync and album name add input values.
Encode the input and parse the 
output in the path dir listing again to prevent further persistent script code injects.


Security Risk:
==============
The security risk of the persistent input validation web vulnerability is estimated as medium(+).
