Security problems in Zenphoto version 1.3



We are continuing with the list of security vulnerabilities found in a
number of web applications while testing our latest version of Acunetix
WVS v7  . In this blog post, we will look into the details of a number
of security problems discovered by Acunetix WVS in the popular web
gallery application Zenphoto.

    Zenphoto is a standalone gallery CMS that just makes sense and
doesn’t try to do everything and your dishes. We hope you agree with our
philosophy: simpler is better. Don’t get us wrong though – Zenphoto
really does have everything you need for web media gallery management.

The following web vulnerabilities were found in Zenphoto Version 1.3;

1. SQL injection in “/zenphoto_1_3/zp-core/full-image.php”, parameter “a”.
2. Cross-site Scripting vulnerability in
“/zenphoto_1_3/zp-core/admin.php”, parameter “from”.
3.Cross-site Scripting vulnerability in
“/zenphoto_1_3/zp-core/admin.php”, parameter “user”.

Technical details about each web vulnerability are below;

1. SQL injection in “/zenphoto_1_3/zp-core/full-image.php”, parameter “a”.

Source file: /var/www/zenphoto_1_3/zp-core/functions-db.php line: 65

Additional details:

SQL Query:
SELECT `id`, `album_theme` FROM `zp_albums` WHERE `folder` LIKE
"1ACUSTART'"*" OR `folder` LIKE "1ACUSTART'"*/
 	ACUEND"

Stack trace:
1. query([string] "SELECT `id`, `album_theme` FROM `zp_albums` WHERE
`folder` LIKE "1ACUSTART'"*" OR `folder` LIKE "1ACUSTART'"*/\n
ACUEND"", [boolean] false)
  2. query_full_array([string] "SELECT `id`, `album_theme` FROM
`zp_albums` WHERE `folder` LIKE "1ACUSTART'"*" OR `folder` LIKE
"1ACUSTART'"*/\n 	ACUEND"")
  3. getAlbumInherited([string] "1ACUSTART'"*/\n 	ACUEND", [string]
"album_theme", [NULL] )
  4. themeSetup([string] "1ACUSTART'"*/\n 	ACUEND")

As you can see in the SQL query (or the stack trace), in order to alter
the SQL statement sent to the database you need to use a double qoute
(not a single one, as in most SQL injections).

2. Cross-site Scripting vulnerability in
“/zenphoto_1_3/zp-core/admin.php”, parameter “from”.
