MetaForum <= 0.513 Beta - Remote file upload Vulnerability Mar 18 2007 10:06PM
aeroxteam------nospam----- gmail com
A security bug has been discovered in MetaForum 0.513 Beta.
This bug can be used by an attacker to upload a malicious php file on the server.
During the upload, the MIME type of the file is the only verified parameter. The extention isn't.
This enables a attacker to fake the MIME type of a php file so that it is considered as an image.


Replace line 110 in the file usercp.php by:
if (($_FILES['imagefile']['type'] == "image/jpeg" || $_FILES['imagefile']['type'] == "image/pjpeg" || $_FILES['imagefile']['type'] == "image/png" || $_FILES['imagefile']['type'] == "image/gif") && in_array(strtolower(substr(strrchr($_FILES['imagefile']['name'], '.'),1)), array('gif', 'jpg', 'jpeg', 'png')))
