Introduction:
-------------
MyTy[1] is a software framework that includes a crowdfunding module. It can be
installed on a customer server and used to create whitelabel websites for
crowdfunding platforms.

Compass Security discovered a web application security flaw in the crowdfunding
module login process that allows an unauthenticated attacker to execute
arbitrary SQL query against the database. This allows to read and modify the
whole database, within the privilege limitations of the database user executing
the queries.

Affected:
---------
Vulnerable:
* MyTy 5.0.4 to 5.1.6


Technical Description
---------------------
During the login process, the user email and password are sent in a POST
request. In this request, the login_email parameter is concatenated into an SQL
query in a way that allows for SQL injection.

This was first discovered as a time-based blind injection with the following
request:
===============
POST /tycon/modules/crowdfunding/mvc/controller/ajax/user/login/show.php?popi
n=1
&type=simpleLogin&activeTab=0 HTTP/1.1
Host: [CUT BY COMPASS]

&login_email=test'%2b(select*from(select(sleep(20)))a)%2b'&login_passwor

===============

Workaround / Fix:
-----------------
Install an up to date version of the MyTy software.

As a developer:
Strictly use prepared statements in order to protect the application from SQL
injection.

Optional addition:
Validate all user input and filter dangerous characters, which can cause a
change of the context and have to be filtered, cut or escaped e.g. " ' -- () ;

Timeline:
