--------------------------------------------------------------------------
vtiger CRM <= 5.4.0 (vtigerolservice.php) PHP Code Injection Vulnerability
--------------------------------------------------------------------------


[-] Software Link:

http://www.vtiger.com/


[-] Affected Versions:

All versions from 5.0.0 to 5.4.0.


[-] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerable code is located in the AddEmailAttachment SOAP method defined in /soap/vtigerolservice.php:

458. function AddEmailAttachment($emailid,$filedata,$filename,$filesize,$filetype,$username,$session)
459. {
460. if(!validateSession($username,$session))
461. return null;
462. global $adb;
463. require_once('modules/Users/Users.php');
464. require_once('include/utils/utils.php');
465. $filename = preg_replace('/\s+/', '_', $filename);//replace space with _ in filename
466. $date_var = date('Y-m-d H:i:s');
467.
468. $seed_user = new Users();
469. $user_id = $seed_user->retrieve_user_id($username);
470.
471. $crmid = $adb->getUniqueID("vtiger_crmentity");
472.
473. $upload_file_path = decideFilePath();
474.
475. $handle = fopen($upload_file_path.$crmid."_".$filename,"wb");
476. fwrite($handle,base64_decode($filedata),$filesize);
477. fclose($handle);

The vulnerability exists because this method fails to properly validate input passed through the "filedata" and
"filename" parameters, which are used to write an "email attachment" in the storage directory (lines 475-477).
This can be exploited to write (or overwrite) files with any content, resulting in execution of arbitrary PHP code.


[-] Solution:

The patch provided by the vendor (http://www.vtiger.com/blogs/?p=1467) doesn't fix completely this
vulnerability, because a remote authenticated user can still be able to inject and execute arbitrary code.

[*] The vendor was alerted about this when the feedback has been provided.
