~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Overview:

With the Page2Flip Web application, it is possible to create e-papers in
PDF format that can be flicked through digitally. Such e-papers can be
used for magazines, catalogues, flyers, etc. (see [1]).

The Page2Flip app allows users to access functionality that should only 
be available for administrative users.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vulnerability Details:

The SySS GmbH identified that it is possible for a user with low 
privileges, to access functionality that should only be accessible by 
administrators, by directly entering the URL.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Proof of Concept (PoC):

For example, by accessing the URL https://[host]/settings/users, all 
user names and e-mail addresses can be accessed. Also, by accessing the 
URL https://[host]/settings/extended, it is possible to perform the same 
actions as high privileged users are able to perform.
