2. Vulnerability Description

When uploading image files via the "My image" plugin - which is
delivered with NibbleBlog by default - , NibbleBlog 4.0.3 keeps the
original extension of uploaded files. This extension or the actual file
type are not checked, thus it is possible to upload PHP files and gain
code execution.

Please note that admin credentials are required.

3. Proof of Concept

Obtain Admin credentials (for example via Phishing via XSS which can
be gained via CSRF, see advisory about CSRF in NibbleBlog 4.0.3)
Activate My image plugin by visiting
http://localhost/nibbleblog/admin.php?controller=plugins&action=install&plugin=my_image
Upload PHP shell, ignore warnings
Visit
http://localhost/nibbleblog/content/private/plugins/my_image/image.php.
This is the default name of images uploaded via the plugin.

4. Code


if( $plugin->init_db() )
{
// upload files
foreach($_FILES as $field_name=>$file)
{
$extension = strtolower(pathinfo($file['name'],
PATHINFO_EXTENSION));
$destination = PATH_PLUGINS_DB.$plugin->get_dir_name();
$complete = $destination.'/'.$field_name.'.'.$extension;

// Upload the new file and move
if(move_uploaded_file($file["tmp_name"], $complete))
{
// Resize images if requested by the plugin
if(isset($_POST[$field_name.'_resize']))
{
$width =
isset($_POST[$field_name.'_width'])?$_POST[$field_name.'_width']:200;
$height =
isset($_POST[$field_name.'_height'])?$_POST[$field_name.'_height']:200;
$option =
isset($_POST[$field_name.'_option'])?$_POST[$field_name.'_option']:'auto';
$quality =
isset($_POST[$field_name.'_quality'])?$_POST[$field_name.'_quality']:100;

$Resize->setImage($complete, $width, $height, $option);
$Resize->saveImage($complete, $quality, true);
}
}
}

unset($_POST['plugin']);

// update fields
$plugin->set_fields_db($_POST);

Session::set_alert($_LANG['CHANGES_HAS_BEEN_SAVED_SUCCESSFULLY']);
}
}
