TITLE:
Mambo Multiple Vulnerabilities

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA28670

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/28670/

CRITICAL:
Moderately critical

IMPACT:
Cross Site Scripting, Manipulation of data, Exposure of system
information

WHERE:
>From remote

SOFTWARE:
Mambo 4.x
http://secunia.com/product/872/

DESCRIPTION:
AmnPardaz Security Research Team have discovered some vulnerabilities
and a weakness in Mambo, which can be exploited by malicious people to
disclose system information, conduct cross-site scripting and
cross-site request forgery attacks, and to manipulate data.

1) Input passed to the "file[NewFile][tmp_name]" parameter in
mambots/editors/mostlyce/jscripts/tiny_mce/filemanager/connectors/php/connector.php
is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to
delete arbitrary files, e.g. configuration.php.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that the Image
Manager part of MOStlyCE has been installed by unpacking the
UserFiles.zip archive in the web root.

2) A vulnerability is caused due to the application allowing users to
perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any
validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to
create new administrators, e.g. when a user visits a malicious site.

3) Input passed to the "Command" parameter in
mambots/editors/mostlyce/jscripts/tiny_mce/filemanager/connectors/php/connector.php
is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can
be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's
browser session in context of an affected site.

4) A weakness is caused due to the full script path being disclosed
in error messages in the
mambots/editors/mostlyce/jscripts/tiny_mce/filemanager/connectors/php/connector.php
script.

The vulnerabilities and the weakness are confirmed in version 4.6.3
with the SearchPatch installed. Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Restrict access to the
"mambots/editors/mostlyce/jscripts/tiny_mce/filemanager/connectors/php/connector.php"
script (e.g. with ".htaccess"). Do not browse untrusted websites while
logged on to Mambo.
