1)

Vulnerable code:

==[ pblguestbook.php 164-183 ]==========================

[...]

if ($id){

foreach ($_POST as $name => $value)

{

$_POST["$name"] = str_replace("\n","<BR>",$value);

}

foreach ($_POST as $name => $value)

{

$_POST["$name"] = str_replace("\t","",$value);

}

foreach ($_POST as $name => $value)

{

$_POST["$name"] = str_replace("\r","",$value);

}

foreach ($_POST as $name => $value)

{

$_POST["$name"] = str_replace('|',"¦",$value);

}

foreach ($_POST as $name => $value)

{

$_POST["$name"] = preg_replace("/\<SCRIPT(.*?)\>(.*?)\<\/SCRIPT(.*?)\>/i", "SCRIPT BLOCKED", $value);

}

[...]

==[ end pblguestbook.php ]==========================

How we can see the script only do some replaces. Only the <script> tag is filtered, but we can include javascript code with

other tags.

Here you have some values for the name, message, website and e-mail.

PoC:

---------------------------------------------------------

value: <a onMouseOver="javascript: location.href='http://google.com';" href="#"><h1>TOUCH ME</h1></a>

value: <iframe src="http://somesite.com"></iframe>

2)

The PBL Guestbook don't use MySQL databases to save the admin info, so it's no very useful give many importance. However, p.e.

in the next code there's no simple quotes filtering ('). The used variables are the same that we saw in the pasted code:

==[ pblguestbook.php 220-224 ]==========================

[...]

$query = "INSERT INTO `pblguestbook_posts` (`name`,`email`,`ip`,`time`,`website`,`customq1`,`customq2`,";

$query .= "`customq3`,`customq4`,`customq5`,`rate`,`comments`,`private`,`app`) VALUES('$_POST[name]',";

$query .= "'$_POST[email]','$_SERVER[REMOTE_ADDR]','$time','$_POST[website]',";

$query .= "'$conqd1','$conqd2','$conqd3','$conqd4','$conqd5',";

$query .= "'$_POST[rate]','$_POST[comments]','$_POST[private]','$appmode')"

[...]

==[ end pblguestbook.php ]==========================

If magic_quotes_gpc is off, just add one simple quote at the final of the name, email, web or message and you'll see that the

script can add the post because there was a problem with the sql query.
