(Copy of the Homepage: & ) Abstract Advisory Information: ============================== The vulnerability laboratory core research team discovered a persistent cross site vulnerability in the Froxlor Server Management Panel v0.10.16. Affected Product(s): ==================== Froxlor Team Product: Froxlor v0.10.16 (Stable) - Server Management Panel (Control Panel) Affected Packages: Gentoo, Debian & Ubuntu Vulnerability Disclosure Timeline: ================================== 2020-05-01: Researcher Notification & Coordination (Security Researcher) 2020-05-02: Vendor Notification (Security Department) 2020-05-13: Vendor Response/Feedback (Security Department) 2020-10-12: Vendor Fix/Patch (Service Developer Team) ****-**-**: Security Acknowledgements (Security Department) 2020-11-12: Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory) Discovery Status: ================= Published Exploitation Technique: ======================= Remote Severity Level: =============== Medium Authentication Type: ==================== Restricted Authentication (Guest Privileges) User Interaction: ================= Low User Interaction Disclosure Type: ================ Full Disclosure Technical Details & Description: ================================ A persistent input validation web vulnerability has been discovered in the Froxlor Server Management Panel v0.10.16 web-application. The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject own malicious script codes with persistent attack vector to compromise browser to web-application requests from the application-side. The persistent cross site web vulnerability is located in the `username`, `name` and `firstname` input fields of the customer add or registration module. Remote attackers are able to add customers with malicious script code as firstname or name to manipulate in the backend the `admin_customers.php` and `customers.php` files. The injection point is the registration or customer add/edit module and the execution occurs on preview of the traffic module in the admin backend. The request method to inject is POST and the attack vector is persistent located on the application-side. In a valid attack case the remote attacker uses a customer or reseller account to inject the payload as name to provoke an execute in the insecure backend module. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in session hijacking, persistent phishing attacks, persistent external redirects to malicious source and persistent manipulation of affected application modules. Request Method(s): [+] POST Vulnerable Input(s): [+] Username [+] Name [+] Firstname Vulnerable Module(s): [+] Customers Vulnerable Parameter(s): [+] name [+] firstname Affected File(s): [+] admin_customers.php Proof of Concept (PoC): ======================= The persistent input validation vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with low privilege user account and with low user interaction. For security demonstration or to reproduce the security web vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue. Manual steps to reproduce the vulnerability ... 1. Register or login with a low privilege user account 2. Open the profile account section 3. Change the name and firstname or include in the registration process Note: Inject test payload to vulnerable marked input fields 4. Save or submit the input via form 5. Wait until an admin or higher privileged user role opens the traffic stats to execute 6. Successful reproduce of the persistent input validation web vulnerability!
