Session Fixation, Reflected XSS, Code Execution in PivotX 2.3.10



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.
