2. Overview

CVSS

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

Description

The module file_manager allows for file uploads, and uses exif_imagetype to
check the validity of the file.

By setting the first bytes of the uploaded file to that of a valid image type,
an attacker can easily bypass this check and thus upload files of dangerous
type.

It should be noted that only files with the name index.php will be executed, as
access to all other PHP files is forbidden by a htaccess file.

An account that has access to the module "File manager" is needed to exploit
this issue.

3. Code


/modules/file_manager/index.php
function file_manager_upload($directory = '')
{
$file = $_FILES['file']['tmp_name'];
$file_name = file_manager_clean_file_name($_FILES['file']['name']);
$file_size = $_FILES['file']['size'];

/* validate post */

if (function_exists('exif_imagetype'))
{
if (exif_imagetype($file) == '')
{
$error = l('file_type_limit', '_file_manager') . l('point');
}
}

4. Solution

To mitigate this issue please remove the file_manager module.
