Zikula Application Framework <= 1.3.6 Multiple PHP Object Injection Vulnerabilities
Version 1.3.6 and probably prior versions.
1) Input passed via the authentication_method_ser and authentication_info_ser POST parameters to index.php (when module is set to users, func is set to register, csrftoken is set to a valid value, and registration_info is set to an arbitrary value) is not properly sanitised before being used in a call to the unserialize() function. This can be exploited to e.g. delete arbitrary files or inject and execute arbitrary PHP code via specially crafted serialized objects.
2) Input passed via the zikulaMobileTheme cookie parameter to index.php is not properly sanitised before being used in a call to the unserialize() function in the /lib/util/SecurityUtil.php script. This can be exploited to e.g. delete arbitrary files or inject and execute arbitrary PHP code via specially crafted serialized objects sent in a Cookie header.
Update to version 1.3.7.
