Phpbb id: 10701 update and Attachmodule add-on Directory Traversal



Phpbb id: 10701 update and Attachmodule add-on Directory Traversal

Phpbb: All vulnerable all except 2.0.11
Attachment module: All version vulnerable 

Howdark update opened wide my eyes with his nice exploit: 

Bugtraq id: 10701

viewtopic.php?t=1&highlight=%2527

Looking at the code I saw that was possible inject any type of Sql query 
with a multiple char() functions. 

The following code can add an username with admin rights executing this 
query: 

INSERT INTO 
phpbb_users(user_id,user_active,username,user_password,user_level) VALUES 
('99999','1','ze3lock','ba3c83348bddf7b368b478ac06d3340e','1') 

And will be added to phpbb_users a new user with admin rights. 

*Note we can only execute a working query if we know the tables name. If not 
we can't. So this work only with a standard installation (usually 95% of 
websites ;-) 

username: ze3lock
pass: thepass 

The exploit can be run without being logged in and then you can have access 
with username. So it's quite simple to make it part of a script that could 
make backdoors around the web. 

For make it working just use the id of a working thread (in this case the 
thread is 30 - you can see it from the message)

 ------------ Attach Module ---------------- 


In the attach module, I found a directory traversal in the "UPLOAD_DIR" 
field. 

This is the directory where all attachments are supposted to be uploaded. 

The field accept any kind of character so you can put instead of 'files' 
'../../' and all the attachments will be uploaded in the '../..? directory. 

That's really dangerous for defacements threat. 


 --------------- Suggestion ------------------ 

Please, upgrade to version 2.0.11 and add an input validation to UPLOAD_DIR 
field in attach module.
