(Copy of the Vendor Homepage: ) Abstract Advisory Information: ============================== An independent vulnerability laboratory researcher discovered a code execution vulnerability in the official FreemakeVideoDownloader v3.7.1 software. Vulnerability Disclosure Timeline: ================================== 2015-10-12: Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory) Discovery Status: ================= Published Affected Product(s): ==================== Freemake Product: Freemake Video Downloader - Software (Windows) 3.7.1 Exploitation Technique: ======================= Local Severity Level: =============== High Technical Details & Description: ================================ A code execution web vulnerability has been discovered in the official FreemakeVideo Converter v4.1.7 software. The vulnerability allows an attacker to execute malicious codes by interaction with a vulnerable software input field. The security vulnerability is present in the `paste url` module of the software. The download module does not filter the file type .php and thus finally allows an attacker to execute for example the calculator. The vulnerability can be exploited by local attackers without interaction. The severity of the issue is high and the bug can be exploited because of a misconfigured file validation mechanism. The security risk of the code execution vulnerability is estimated as high with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 8.8. Exploitation of the vulnerability requires a low privilege system user account and no user interaction. Successful exploitation of the software vulnerability results in system compromise by a classic url code execution. Vulnerable Module(s): [+] Download Vulnerable Input(s): [+] paste url Affected Module(s): [+] .php Proof of Concept (PoC): ======================= The code execution vulnerability can be exploited by local attackers with restricted system user account and without user interaction.
