[KIS-2016-11] IPS Community Suite <= 4.1.12.3 Autoloaded PHP Code Injection Vulnerability



---------------------------------------------------------------------------
IPS Community Suite <= 4.1.12.3 Autoloaded PHP Code Injection Vulnerability
---------------------------------------------------------------------------


[-] Software Link:

https://invisionpower.com/


[-] Affected Versions:

Version 4.1.12.3 and prior versions.


[-] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerable code is located in the /applications/core/modules/front/system/content.php script:

38.	$class = 'IPS\\' . implode( '\\', explode( '_', \IPS\Request::i()->content_class ) );
39.	
40.	if ( ! class_exists( $class ) or ! in_array( 'IPS\Content', class_parents( $class ) ) )
41.	{
42.	    \IPS\Output::i()->error( 'node_error', '2S226/2', 404, '' );
43.	}

User input passed through the "content_class" request parameter is not properly sanitized before being used in a call
to the "class_exists()" function at line 40. This could be exploited by unauthenticated attackers to inject and execute
arbitrary PHP code leveraging the autoloading function defined into the /applications/cms/Application.php script:

171.	if ( mb_substr( $class, 0, 14 ) === 'IPS\cms\Fields' and is_numeric( mb_substr( $class, 14, 1 ) ) )
172.	{
173.	    $databaseId = mb_substr( $class, 14 );
174.	    eval( "namespace IPS\\cms; class Fields{$databaseId} extends Fields { public static \$customDatabaseId [...]
175.	}

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires the application running on PHP before version 5.4.24 or 5.5.8.
