The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered a local file include vulnerability in the mobile Air Transfer 
v1.2.0 app for the apple ipad & iphone.

2013-02-14:     Public Disclosure


Affected Products:
Apple AppStore
Product: Air Transfer Application - (iPad & iPhone) 1.2.0



A local file include web vulnerability via POST request method is detected in the mobile WirelessFiles v1.1 app for the 
apple ipad & iphone.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers via POST method to inject local app webserver folders to request unauthorized 
local webserver files.

The vulnerbility is located in the upload file module of the webserver ( when processing to load a 
filename via POST. The execution of the injected path or file request will occur when the attacker is opening the 
generated links in the 
file dir listing. First the remote attacker drag&drop (copy) a manipulated link with system path or local files to 
request. He adds the local 
file request and in the secound step the attacker opens the generated link in the listing to execute the code out of 
the index module.

Exploitation of the web vulnerability requires low privileged application user account without user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in unauthorized path or file access via local file or path include

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] Air Transfer Filename Index - Listing

Proof of Concept:
The local file include web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without required user interaction and 
privileged application user account. For demonstration or reproduce ...

Input: (Upload)

http://[Server]:[PORT]/[Local File or Path Include]

../var/mobile/Applications/2D31A1B7-6A58-42CE-A5B2-EB7307BE5B6F/AirScrap2 Lite.app/note.png

2.  Install the application and start it the service on your ipad or iphone
3.  Open the air transfer file dir service application 
5.  Start your browser session tamper tool to manipulate the post request live
4.  Use the Drag&Drop function to upload via and choose any random file
5.  Submit the random picture and exchange the name and filename values (POST) with your local path or file request
7.  Refresh the index listing of the main service and open the generated link with your 
path/file request
8.  The path or file will be loaded and is accessable
9.  The application can be compromised by mobile webshell uploads and other malicious and persistent injected context
10. Successful reproduced ... done!

The security risk of the local file include web vulnerability is estimated as high(+).
