Description:   Soroush Dalili from GrayHatz Security Group (GSG) reported a vulnerability in Hosting Controller. A remote user can obtain reseller privileges and then gain administrative privileges.

The 'hosting/addreseller.asp' script does not properly authenticate users. A remote user can gain reseller privileges.

A remote user can send an HTTP POST request to the '/Admin/Accounts/AccountActions.asp?ActionType=UpdateCreditLimit' script to list all resellers on the target system.

The remote user can modify the password of one of the resellers on the list. Then, logging in as that reseller, the remote user can load the userlist and select a user (or create and select one if no user exists). Finally, the remote user can submit a form to the '/Admin/Check_Password.asp' to gain administrative privileges (including HCAdmin privileges).

Impact:   A remote user can gain reseller and administrative privileges.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fixed version (6.1 Hotfix 3.2), available at:
