===============
1) Introduction
===============

Barracuda Drive is a commercial webserver developed by Real Time Logic
and contains many features.

=======
2) Bugs
=======

----------------------
A] directory traversal
----------------------

A directory traversal vulnerability is exploitable through the usage of
a backslash or any other char major than 0x7f at the beginning of the
URI.
The directories must be delimited by backslashes (and not slashes) for
exploiting the bug.

-------------------------------
B] scripts source visualization
-------------------------------

All the custom scripts in the server (like the LUA scripts with lsp
extension) can be visualized entirely instead of being executed simply
using a '+', a dot or any other char major than 0x7f after the script's
name.

------------------------------------
C] arbitrary files deleting by users
------------------------------------

BarracudaDrive allows the admin to create users which can then access
their personal folders, chating between them and so on.
The problem here is that these authenticated users can delete files and
empty folders anywhere in the disk on which is located their personal
directory simply using the usual ..\ pattern.

Note that is also possible to create directories in the disk using the
same trick but this is not a real security problem.

---------------------------------------------
D] NULL pointer crash in chat.ehintf by users
---------------------------------------------

As already said the users can also chat between them using a simple
web interface called Group Chat.
In this case it's enough to avoid the passing of the Connection ID of
the user in the URI for crashing the entire server due to a NULL
pointer.

-------------------------------------
E] html injection in the trace viewer
-------------------------------------

BarracudaDrive logs any bad or wrong HTTP request received by the
clients and the Trace page in the admin interface can be used to
visualize these log files.
The problem is that they are visualized as HTML and there are no checks
or limitations on their content so a remote attacker can use this bug
for injecting scripts in these files, for example for retrieving the
cookie of the admin and gaining access to the server configuration.
