Title: Open Proxy in filedownload v1.4 wordpress plugin
Author: Larry W. Cashdollar, @_larry0
Date: 2015-07-11
Download Site: https://wordpress.org/plugins/filedownload/
Vendor: Peter Gross
Vendor Notified: 2015-07-11
Vendor Contact: plugins@wordpress.org
Description: Creates a downloadlink with the browsers SaveAs dialog for all available filetypes. A download counter can be shown on the post and admin area.
Vulnerability:
The code in download.php doesn't check to see if a user is logged in before allowing a request to an external site. This flaw can be used to allow malicious code to be loaded into a browser or mask application attacks directed at a target site from behind vulnerable wordpress plugin sites.

27 $type = $_GET[type];
28 $path = $_GET[path];
29 $check = $_GET[check];
30
31 $forbidden = false;
32 $path_parts = pathinfo($path);
33
34 // V0.2 Security: not longer allowed relative pathes
35 if (strpos($path, 'http://') === false) $forbidden = true;
36 if (!(strpos($path, '..') === false)) $forbidden = true;
37 if (!(strpos($path, '.php') === false)) $forbidden = true;
38
39 // version 1.4 external downloads allowed?
40 $allow_external_download = get_blog_option( get_current_blog_id(), "filedown load_allow_external_download", "not available" );
41 if ($allow_external_download == "0") // then external url downloads are not allowed
42 {
43
44 $site_url = strtolower(get_site_url( get_current_blog_id() ));
45 $download_url = strtolower(substr($path_parts[dirname], 0, strlen($site_ur l)));



Possible Blind SQL Injection and Persistent XSS, I haven't been able to successfully exploit these:

Lines 53-54 don't handle user-input properly for $filename:

53 $query = 'SELECT * FROM '.$wpdb->prefix.'filedownload WHERE filename = \''.$filename.'\'';
54 $result=$wpdb->get_row($query, ARRAY_A);

The filenames are sent back to the user with out any sanitization, I believe if you can create a XSS filename as your payload you maybe able
to inject persistent XSS filenames into the database.

149 foreach ($selected as $filename)
150 {
151 filedownload_Reset($filename);
152 print "filename = $filename<br />";
153 }
154 }


Reflected XSS

Line 61 of download.php echos the contents of referer to the user with out sanitizing its contents first leading to reflected XSS:

61 <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3; URL=<?php echo $_GET[referer]; ?>"
