"Original is a set of scripts to get your digital photos on the web. It
aims to be as simple to maintain as possible."

The systems consist of two parts: "a client side script to scale your
images to different sizes, create archives of an album, attach optional
metadata" and a "php script to render html pages of the picture


It's possible to execute arbitrary code on remote systems which have
installed a vulnerable software version.


The file "inc/exif.inc.php" contains the following vulnerable statement:

exec("$exif_prog \"$gallery_dir/$galerie/lq/img-$snimek.jpg\"",
$exif_data, $exif_status);".

If PHP is configured with the "globals on" option, an attacker can
execute arbitrary code doing a direct request to the file and sending
shell commands in the parameter/value $exif_prog.



The request should create a file in the /tmp directory (on Unix systems)
named p0wn3d.txt. If this happens than you have a vulnerable version of
the software (and a really risky PHP setup).

A rapid measurement show that ~10% systems are vulnerable of about
17'000 listed on Google (using the dork: "Generated by Original ver").


Upgrade to the new version 0.11.3 witch fix this vulnerability.


Or if unable to upgrade:

1) Disable access to the directory using Limit (vhosts/.htaccess).

2) Disable execution using disable_functions in php.ini.

The result is:

Warning: exec() has been disabled for security reasons in
/home/XXX/inc/exif.inc.php on line 157

3) Deny direct access to the file in the PHP code by checking for a
define or requested url.


The vendor has promptly replied and addressed the problem issuing a
new release.

Original version 0.11.3 is available here:
