The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered a remote file include vulnerability in the Air Drive Plus 2.4 application (Apple iOS - iPad&iPhone).

2013-07-09: Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory)


Affected Products:
Apple AppStore
Product: Air Drive Plus 2.4



A local file include and arbitrary file upload web vulnerability is detected in the Air Drive Plus 2.4 application (Apple iOS - iPad&iPhone).
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to upload files via POST method with multiple extensions to unauthorized access them on
application-side of the service.

The vulnerability is located in the file upload/add (AirDriveAction_file_add) module of the web-server (http://localhost:8000/) when processing
to request a manipulated filename via POST. The injected file will be accessable via the index listing module of the application.

Remote attackers can exchange the filename with a double or tripple extension bia POST method to bypass the upload validation and filter process.
After the upload the attacker access the file with one extension and exchange it with the other one to execute for example php codes.

A persistent script code injection is detected in the filename parameter. Attackers can tamper the request and exchange the file name with
persistent malicious script code or tags. The code will be executed in the main index site when processing to list the object (file) items.
Attackers are also able to inject persistent code with local frame requests to unauthorized access application data/apps or restricted
application information. The execution of the persistent code also occurs when an application user is processing to delete the malicious context.
The injected code is stored and will be executed from the delete notification and protection message.

Exploitation of the vulnerability requires no user interaction and also without privilege application user account (no password standard).
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in unauthorized path or file access via local file include or arbitrary file upload.

Vulnerable Application(s):
[+] Air Drive Plus 2.4 - ITunes or AppStore (Apple)

Vulnerable Module(s):
[+] File Upload (Web Server) [Remote]

Vulnerable File(s):
[+] AirDriveAction_file_add

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
[+] filename

Affected Module(s):
[+] Application Index Listing (http://localhost:8000/)

Proof of Concept:
The arbitrary file upload vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privileged application user account and
also without user interaction. For demonstration or reproduce ...
