Hello,

The e107 is an open-source, PHP and SQL based portal and content
management system[1]. The user Tron[2] of my website[3] has detected an
issue in forum_post.php. If you want to create a new topic you will get
to forum_post.php?nt.13 where an integer the id of the forum represents.

Because there is no real input validation an attacker may change this
number to whatever he wants to post in non-existing forums. Creating
posts in forums he has no permissions is not possible because a check is
done in line 41. But there is no check if a forum ist exiting or not.
The attacker may be able to mess up the forum/website with spam messages
- Damage correction may be require manual delete and move of affected
posts (e.g. by phpMyAdmin).

This vulnerability has been confirmed in e107 0.6. The CVS release of
0.7 may also be affected. I made the following simple enhancement of the
if-else statement, to allow postings only in existing forums (and if the
permissions are given). I also sent a bug report earlier this morning to
the developement team of e107[4].

--- cut ---

// check if user can post to this forum ...

if($sql -> db_Select("forum", "*", "forum_id=$forum_id")){
$row = $sql -> db_Fetch(); extract($row);
if(!check_class($forum_class)){
$ns -> tablerender(LAN_20, "<div
style='text-align:center'>".LAN_399."</div>");
require_once(FOOTERF);
exit;
}
}else{
require_once(HEADERF);
$ns -> tablerender(LAN_20, "<div
style='text-align:center'>".LAN_399."</div>");
require_once(FOOTERF);
exit;
}

My open-source vulnerability scanner and exploiting framework "Attack
Tool Kit" (ATK) will provide plugins to determine the existence of this
flaw and to exploit it too[5].

Regards,

Marc
