SugarCRM <= 6.5.18 (MySugar::addDashlet) Insecure fopen() Usage Vulnerability

[-] Software Link:


[-] Affected Versions:

Version 6.5.18 CE and other versions.

[-] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerable code is located within the MySugar::addDashlet() method:

89.	  if (isset($_REQUEST['type']) && $_REQUEST['type'] == 'web') {
90.		$dashlet_module = 'Home';
91.		require_once('include/Dashlets/DashletRssFeedTitle.php');
92.		$options['url'] = $_REQUEST['type_module'];
93.		$webDashlet = new DashletRssFeedTitle($options['url']);
94.		$options['title'] = $webDashlet->generateTitle();

User input passed through the "type_module" request parameter isn’t properly sanitized before being used
to instantiate a new DashletRssFeedTitle object, and this could be exploited to carry out certain attacks
because of the DashletRssFeedTitle::readFeed() method (user input passed directly to the "fopen()" function):

71.		public function readFeed() {
72.			if ($this->url) {
73.				$fileOpen = @fopen($this->url, 'r');
74.				if ($fileOpen) {
75.					$this->fileOpen = true;
76.					$this->contents = fread($fileOpen, $this->readBytes);
77.					fclose($fileOpen);
78.					return true;
79.				}

This can be exploited by authenticated attackers to carry out Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF) attacks,
potentially read content of arbitrary files, initiate a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack, or execute
arbitrary OS commands when the "expect" extension is installed through the following URL:


[-] Solution:

Update to version 6.5.19 CE or higher to partially mitigate the vulnerability.
No official solution is currently available against the SSRF and XSS attack vectors.
