Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities in eFiction < 2.0.2
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server has a PHP application that is affected by
The remote host is running eFiction, an open-source application in PHP
The installed version of eFiction is affected by numerous flaws :
- Members may be able to upload files containing arbitrary
PHP code disguised as image files and then run that code
on the remote host subject to the rights of the web
server user id. If a possible hacker does not yet have access,
he can register and have a password mailed to him
- User-supplied input to several parameters and scripts is
used without sanitation, which can lead to SQL injection
attacks provided PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' is disabled.
These issues can be exploited, for example, to bypass
authentication or disclose sensitive information.
- User-supplied input to the 'let' parameter of the
'titles.php' script is not sanitized before being used
in dynamically-generated web pages, which leads to
cross-site scripting attacks.
- An unauthenticated attacker may be able to gain
information about the installation and configuration of
PHP on the remote host by requesting the 'phpinfo.php'
script or to learn the install path by a direct request
to the 'storyblock.php' script with no arguments.
- Unauthenticated attackers may be able to access the
'install.php' and/or 'upgrade.php' scripts and thereby
modify the installation on the remote host.
