Summary
========
GNUBoard is one of widely used web BBS applications in Korea. However, an
input validation flaw can cause malicious attackers to run arbitrary
commands with the privilege of the HTTPD process, which is typically run as
the nobody user.



Vulnerability Class
===================
Implementation Error: Input validation flaw

Impact
======
High : arbitrary command execution.

Affected Products
================
GNUBoard 3.40 and prior

Vendor Status: NOT FIXED
========================
2004-12-09 Vulnerability found
2004-12-09 Vendor contacted and confirmed.
2005-01-03 Official release.

Details
=======
Implementation of check every file extension of upload files is
case-sensitive. Bypassing this mechanism, malicious attackers can upload
arbitrary script files (php, pl, cgi, etc) to a web server.

gbupdate.php (107 line)
- ----
// 실행가능한 스크립트 확장자
$source = array ("/\.php/", "/\.htm/", "/\.cgi/", "/\.pl/");
$target = array (".phpx", ".htmx", ".cgix", ".plx");
- ----

gbupdate.php (142 line)
- ----
// php_x 와 같은 방법으로 스크립트 실행을 하지 못하게 하였으나 abc.php._x
는 실행되는 버그가 있음
$filename = preg_replace($source, $target, $filename);
// 접두사를 붙인 파일명
$upload[$i] = $prefix . $filename;
$dest_file = "./data/file/$bo_table/$upload[$i]";
- ----

malicious attackers can upload [attack].PHP.rar, [attack].pHp.rar, etc.

Solution
=========
modify 108th line of gbupdate.php as following
$source = array ("/\.php/i", "/\.htm/i", "/\.cgi/i", "/\.pl/i");

Vendor URL
