PHPKIT Has Multiple Bugs That Permit Remote Code Execution, SQL Injection, and Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1015167
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1015167
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Nov 8 2005
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network

Version(s): 1.6.1 R2 and prior versions
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in PHPKIT. A remote user can inject SQL commands, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, and execute arbitrary code on the target system.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the PHPKIT software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

The screen name fields in the 'login/profile.php' and 'login/userinfo.php' scripts are affected.

The 'site_body' field in 'admin/admin.php' is affected if register_globals is enabled.

The HTTP Referer value is affected when the administrator views browser 'referer' statistics.

The title tag and the alt image attribute are not filtered within a forum posting.

The subject line of 'imcenter.php' is affected.

The 'Homepage' field in the guestbook is affected.

A remote user can also supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database. Several scripts are affected, including some of those mentioned above.

A remote user can supply a specially crafted path parameter to include files on the target system. Files that are ostensibly PNG image files (but are actually PHP files) are affected.

If register_globals is enabled, a remoter user can supply a specially crafted parameter value containing eval() syntax characters (i.e., curly braces) to execute arbitrary PHP code on the target system.

The vendor was notified on September 30, 2005.

Christopher Kunz, Stefan Esser, Stefan Walk, and Johann-Peter Hartmann discovered these vulnerabilities.

The original advisory is available at:

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the PHPKIT software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A remote user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.
