ishopcart.cgi suffers from a buffer overflow in the vGetPost() function. POC included.

While spending a night auditing I have found 2 buffer overflows and 1
directory traversal in the ishopcart cgi, which is written in C.

The directory traversal is caused by how the cgi chooses to show pages.
If, for example, the CGI is tould to show an order form, the order
form's name is taken as argv[1] and opens this file and prints it, ie:


The first buffer overflow is in main()'s szTmp[100] variable. argv[1] is
placed in this variable through a sprintf, although no check is made on
the size of argv[1] before putting it in szTmp:


The other buffer overflow (of which I have succesfuly exploited) lies in
main() also, but is overflowed in vGetPost(). char szBuf[4000]; is
passed to vGetPost() under the circumstance that argv[1] contains
specific criteria. vGetPost() reads POST data until the word "Submit" is
encountered, doing absolutely no bounds checking on the ammount of data

When notified via telephone, the author claimed to be in the process of
fixing these errors, and at the same time took ishopcart.com offline.
Provided is the exploit code that spawns a connect back shell. It has been tested both localy and remotely
and has proved to work 100%

The real issue lies in the fact that this is a shopping cart system.
Also, since this is a cgi script, apache forks before executing it and
hence does not die on unsuccessful attempts, meaning that combined with
a massive 4000 NOP buffer, brute forcing of the offset is possible
leading to a theoretical 100% probability of remote code execution.

The good news is that this program doesn't seem to be common. If you you
would like to view the site and the code, search 'ishopcart' on google
and click it's cached link, then hit the source code link and you'll see
easy-scart.c through easy-scart6.c (all, of which, are vulnerable)
