The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered multiple Web Vulnerabilities in the Car Portal v3.0  web application.

2012-04-24: Public or Non-Public Disclosure




Multiple persistent input validation vulnerabilities are detected in the car portal v3.0 web application.
The bugs allow remote attackers to implement/inject malicious script code on the application side (persistent).
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to session hijacking (manager/admin) or stable (persistent) 
context manipulation. Exploitation requires low user inter action.

Vulnerable Module(s):
    [+] Post a new vehicle  - PWRS & Description field 
    [+] Create News - News title
    [+] Create a sub user - Name
                                [+] Create new user group - group Name
                                [+] Change profile - Dealer name &First Name & Last Name

Multiple cross site request forgery vulnerabilities are detected in the car portal v3.0 web application.
The bugs allow remote attackers to enforce the user (admin) to change user`s password, Create a user, sub user, or change profile information
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to creating a new admin account or changing  user`s password.

Vulnerable Module(s):
                                                                [+] cars/ADMIN/index.php?category=security&action=nouveau
                                                                [+] USERS/index.php?category=profile&action=edit
                                                                [+] USERS/index.php?category=home&action=sub_accounts

Arbitrary file upload allows the attacker to upload files that differs than images. The attacker can upload the file by 
changing its name from file.php to file.php.php. After the uploading the file .jpg of the file will be truncated  and the 
file will save on the sever as file.php.
Successful exploitation can result in malware or malicious web shell upload which results in a system comrpomise at the end.

The security risk of the persistent input validation vulnerability is estimated as medium(+).

The security risk of the cross site request forgery vulnerability is estimated as low.

The security risk of the arbitrary file upload vulnerability is estimated as medium(+).
