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


Affected Product(s):
====================
Apple AppStore
Product: Rambax, LLC - SimplyShare 1.4


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


Severity Level:
===============
Critical


Technical Details & Description:
================================
1.1
A critical remote code execution web vulnerability has been discovered in the official SimplyShare v1.4 iOS mobile 
web-application.
Remote attackers are able to execute own system specific codes to compromise the affected web-application or the 
connected mobile device.

The remote vulnerability is located in the vulnerable `text` value of the `Send Text` module. Remote attackers can use 
the prompt send 
text input to direct execute system codes or malicious application requests. The send text input field has no 
restrictions or secure 
encoding to ensure direct code executes are prevented. After the inject the code execution occurs directly in the send 
text module 
item list. The security risk of the remote code execution vulnerability is estimated as critical with a cvss (common 
vulnerability 
scoring system) count of 9.2(+)|(-)9.3.

Exploitation of the code execution vulnerability requires no user interaction or privileged web-application user 
account with password. 
Successful exploitation of the remote code execution vulnerability results in mobile application or connected device 
component compromise.


Request Method(s):
                                [+] [POST]

Vulnerable Module(s):
                                [+] Send Text

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] text

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] Access from Computer (Send Text Index List - Text Name & Context)



1.2
A local file/path include web vulnerability has been discovered in the official SimplyShare v1.4 iOS mobile 
web-application.
The local file include web vulnerability allows remote attackers to unauthorized include local file/path requests or 
system 
specific path commands to compromise the web-application or mobile device.

The local file include web vulnerability is located in the vulnerable `filename` value of the `upload files` module 
(web-interface).
Remote attackers are able to inject own files with malicious filename to compromise the mobile application. The attack 
vector is 
persistent and the request method is POST. The local file/path include execute occcurs in the main file to path section 
after the 
refresh of the file upload. The security risk of the local file include web vulnerability is estimated as high(+) with 
a cvss (common 
vulnerability scoring system) count of 7.7(+)|(-)7.8.

Exploitation of the local file include web vulnerability requires no user interaction or privileged web-application 
user account with password. 
Successful exploitation of the local web vulnerability results in mobile application or connected device component 
compromise by unauthorized 
local file include web attacks.

Request Method(s):
                                [+] [POST]

Vulnerable Input(s):
                                [+] Upload Files

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] filename

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] Access from Computer (File Dir Index List - Folder/Category to  path=/)



1.3
A local command/path injection web vulnerability has been discovered in the official SimplyShare v1.4 iOS mobile 
web-application.
The vulnerability allows to inject local commands via vulnerable system values to compromise the apple iOS mobile 
web-application.

The vulnerability is located in the in the title value of the header area. Local attackers are able to inject own 
script codes 
as iOS device name. The execute of the injected script code occurs with persistent attack vector in the header section 
of the 
web interface. The security risk of the command/path inject vulnerabilities are estimated as high with a cvss (common 
vulnerability 
scoring system) count of 6.2(+)|(-)6.3.

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 in unauthorized execute of system 
specific 
commands or unauthorized path requests.

Request Method(s):
                                [+] [GET]

Vulnerable Value(s):
                                [+] devicename 

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] value to title

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] Access from Computer (File Dir Index List) - [Header]




1.4
Multiple persistent input validation web vulnerabilities has been discovered in the official SimplyShare v1.4 iOS 
mobile web-application.
The bug allows remote attackers to implement/inject own malicious persistent script codes to the application-side of 
the vulnerable app.

The vulnerability is located in the `name` value of the internal photo and video module. The vulnerability can be 
exploited by manipulation 
of the local device album names. After the local attacker with physical access injected the code to the local device 
foto app menu, he is able 
to execute the persistent script codes on the application-side of the mobile app device. The security risk of the 
persistent script code inject 
web vulnerabilities are estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.8(+)|(-)3.9.

Exploitation of the persistent web vulnerabilities requires low user interaction and no privileged web-application user 
account with a password. 
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to persistent session hijacking (customers), account steal via 
persistent web attacks, 
persistent phishing or persistent manipulation of module context.


Vulnerable Module(s):
                                [+] Video Folder Name
                                [+] Photos Folder Name

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] album name values

Affected Module(s):
                                [+] Access from Computer (Photos & Videos Module)

low or medium user interaction. For security demonstration or to reproduce the persistent vulnerabilities follow the 
provided steps and information below.

PoC: Albums > name 

<div id="albums">
<ul class="column">
<li><div class="block"><a href="/rambax/album/0-x"

                        </ul>
                </div>


Solution - Fix & Patch:
=======================
1.1
The first vulnerability can be patched by a secure restriction and encode of the send text input field with the text 
value parameter.
Ensure the output send text item list module only displays secure parsed, encoded and validated context.

1.2
The second vulnerability can be patched by a secure parse and encode of the file name value parameter in the Upload 
File POST method request.

1.3
The third vulnerability can be patched by encoding the header section with the title value parameter to prevent 
physical command injection attacks.

1.4
Encode the photo album and video names to prevent persistent script code injection attacks by local stored album 
components of the foto (photo) app.


Security Risk:
==============
1.1
The security risk of the remote code exection vulnerability is estimated as critical.

1.2
The security risk of the local file include web vulnerability is estimated as high(+).

1.3
The security risk of the local command inject web vulnerability is estimated as high(-).

1.4
The security risk of the persistent script code inject web vulnerabilities via POST method request are estimated as 
medium.
