==============1) Introduction
==============

WebMod is an open source MetaMod plugin which acts as a web server for
Half-Life running on the equivalent TCP port of the UDP one used by the
game.


#######################################################################

======2) Bugs
======
----------------------
A] directory traversal
----------------------

WebMod uses an anti-directory traversal check which searchs for any
"../" pattern in the HTTP request of the client.
So it's enough to use a "..\" pattern to bypass the check and being
able to download any file from the disk where Half-Life is running
included the configuration files of the game server (like
..\..\..\..\platform\config\server.vdf or ..\..\..\server.cfg).
Note that this bug works only on Windows servers.

>From server.cpp:

void clientHandle(int connfd, httpquery_t *query, int tid)
    ...
    if(strstr(str,"../")) // hack attempt, display index page
    {
        str[0]='\0';
    }


-------------------------
B] Cookie buffer-overflow
-------------------------

A cookie parameter longer than MYSOCK_BUFLEN (8192) bytes leads to a
stack based buffer-overflow.

>From server.cpp:

void connectHandle(void *data)
{
char *input;
char buf[MYSOCK_BUFLEN+1];
            ...
            for(j=0;input[i]&&input[i]!=';'&&input[i]!='\n';j++,i++)
                buf[j]=input[i];


--------------------------------------
C] parser.cpp arbitrary memory writing
--------------------------------------

The functions in parser.cpp are affected by some memory corruption
vulnerabilities with different effects depending by the type of
variable/script used.
In short a value longer than MAX_FILE_SIZE (16384) bytes can lead to
the writing of custom data in a custom memory address through strcat
(auth.w?mode) or a NULL pointer (auth.w?redir) or an invalid memory
access (the rconpass parameter of auth.w) and so on.


----------------------------
D] scripts source disclosure
----------------------------

Adding a dot at the end of the requested URI allows the viewing of the
script source code instead of executing it.
This bug (which should work only on FAT/NTFS filesystems) can be
considered a security vulnerability ONLY if the server runs custom
scripts.
