Technical Details & Description:
A local command/path injection web vulnerability has been discovered in the Wireless Transfer App v3.7 for apple iOS.
The vulnerability allows to inject local commands via vulnerable system values to compromise the apple mobile iOS 

The vulnerability is located in the in the album name value of the wireless transfer app index and sub category list 
Remote attackers are able to manipulate iOS device - `photo app` (default) album names. The execute of the injected 
command/path request occurs in the album sub category list and the main album name index list. The security risk of the 
command/path inject vulnerabilities are estimated as high(-) with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 

Exploitation of the command/path inject vulnerability requires a local low privileged iOS device account with 
restricted access 
and no direct user interaction. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results unauthorized execution of system 
commands or unauthorized path requests.

Vulnerable Application(s):
                                [+] Wireless Transfer App v3.7

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] album name
                                [+] photoGallery_head - album

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] Index - Album Name List
                                [+] Sub Category - Title Album Name List

Proof of Concept (PoC):
The local command inject web vulnerabilities can be exploited by local low privileged device user accounts with low 
user interaction. For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the information and steps below. 

Manual steps to exploit the vulnerability ...

1. Install the wireless transfer v3.7 iOS mobile application
2. Open the default Photo app of your iOS device
3. Include an album with the following payload  `">%20<x src=\..\<../var/mobile/Library/[x application path]>` and save 
4. Switch back to the installed wireless transfer app and start the wifi transfer
5. Open the local web-server url http://localhost:6688/ (default link)
6. The local path/command execute occurs in the album name value of the photoGallery_head class
7. Successful reproduce of the vulnerability! 

PoC: Album Name - photoGallery_head in the Album Sub Category List

Solution - Fix & Patch:
The vulnerability can be patched by a secure encode and parse of the vulnerable album name value. 
Parse and filter also the index and sub category output list to ensure it prevents local command/path requests.

Security Risk:
The security risk of the local command/path inject web vulnerability is estimated as high.
