Security Advisory - Curesec Research Team 1. Introduction Affected Product: FUDforum 3.0.6 Fixed in: not fixed Fixed Version Link: n/a Vendor Website: http://fudforum.org/forum/ Vulnerability Type: XSS, Login CSRF Remote Exploitable: Yes Reported to vendor: 04/11/2016 Disclosed to public: 11/10/2016 Release mode: Full Disclosure CVE: n/a Credits Tim Coen of Curesec GmbH 2. Overview FUDforum is forum software written in PHP. In version 3.0.6, it is vulnerable to multiple persistent XSS issues. This allows an attacker to steal cookies, inject JavaScript keyloggers, or bypass CSRF protection. Additionally, FUDforum is vulnerable to Login-CSRF. 3. Details XSS 1: Via Filename in Private Message CVSS: Medium 5.0 AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N Description: The filename of attached images in private messages is vulnerable to persistent XSS. Proof of Concept: Send a PM to a user. Add an attachment, where the filename is: '"><img src=no onerror=alert(1)>.jpg When the recipient views the PM, the injected code will be executed. XSS 2: Via Filename in Forum Posts CVSS: Medium 5.0 AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N Description: The filename of attached images in forum posts is vulnerable to persistent XSS. Proof of Concept: Create a new forum post. Add an attachment, where the filename is: '"><img src= no onerror=alert(1)>.jpg When viewing the post the injected code will be executed. XSS 3: Via Signature in User Profile CVSS: Medium 5.0 AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N Description: When editing a profile, the signature is echoed unencoded, leading to persistent XSS. Proof of Concept: Visit http://localhost/fudforum/index.php?t=register as signature, use '"></ textarea><img src=no onerror=alert(1)> The injected code is either executed when the user themselves edits their profile - which may be exploited via login CSRF - or when an admin visits the edit profile page located here: http:// localhost/fudforum/index.php?t=register&mod_id=6&&SQ= 1a85a858f326ec6602cb6d78d698f60a Login CSRF CVSS: Low 2.6 AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N Description: The login of FUDForum does not have any CSRF protection. The impact of this is low, but an attacker might get a victim to disclose sensitive information by using CSRF to log the victim into an attacker-controlled account. An example would be the accidental sending of a sensitive private message while being logged into an account controlled by an attacker. Additionally, Login-CSRF may enable an attacker to exploit XSS issues in the user area. Proof of Concept: <html> <body> <form action="http://localhost/fudforum/index.php?t=login" method ="POST"> <input type="hidden" name="login" value="admin" /> <input type= "hidden" name="password" value="admin" /> <input type="hidden" name="SQ" value= "0" /> <input type="hidden" name="adm" value="" /> <input type="submit" value= "Submit request" /> </form> </body> </html> 4. Solution This issue was not fixed by the vendor. 5.
