High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered vulnerability in ImageCMS, which can be exploited to perform SQL injection attacks.
The vulnerability exists due to insufficient filtration of the "q" HTTP GET parameter passed to "/admin/admin_search/". A remote authenticated administrator can execute arbitrary SQL commands in the application's database.
Depending on the database and system configuration PoC (Proof-of-Concept) code below will create "/tmp/file.txt" file with MySQL server version inside:
This vulnerability can also be exploited by remote non-authenticated attacker via CSRF vector because the application is prone to Cross-Site Request Forgery attack. In order to do so attacker should trick a logged-in administrator to visit a web page with CSRF exploit.
Basic CSRF exploit example:
<img src="http://[host]/admin/admin_search?q=123%27%20UNION%20SELECT%201,2,version%28%29,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,1 1,1 2,13,14,15%20INTO%20OUTFILE%27/tmp/file.txt%27%20--%202">
