Technical Details & Description:
An arbitrary file upload web vulnerability has been discovered in the official Photos in Wifi v1.0.1 iOS mobile web-application.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to upload an arbitrary (malicious) file to compromise the iOS wifi web-application.
The arbitrary file upload vulnerability is located in `Select a photo or a video to upload` module. Remote attackers are able to intercept
the vulnerable `filename` value in the `upload > submit` POST method request to compromise the mobile device or interface app. The attacker
can use a live session tamper for http to change the `filename` value to a webshell. After the upload the attacker requests the
`asset.php` file to execute the stored malicious file. The encoding of the `ext` value and the parse of the `filename` value is broken
which results obviously in this type behavior. The injection point of the issue is the upload POST method request with the vulnerable
filename value. The execution point occurs in the `assets.php` file when processing to display the images or videos. The upload file path
execution is not restricted (flag) and helps an attacker in case of exploitation to easily upload or access webshells.
Exploitation of the remote web vulnerability requires no user interaction and also no privileged web application user account.
Successful exploitation of the arbitrary file upload vulnerability results in web-server, web module, website or dbms compromise.
Vulnerable Module(s):
                [+] ./assets-library://asset/
Vulnerable File(s):
                [+] asset.php
Proof of Concept (PoC):
The arbitrary file upload vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privilege web-application user account or user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.
Manual steps to reproduce the vulnerability ...
1. Start the web-server (wifi)
2. Go to another computer and login by requesting via http localhost
3. Click upload and choose a random file
4. Start a live session tamper for http
5. Submit the upload to continue with the POST method request
6. Inject to the filename value a webshell code
7. Continue to reply the request
8. The server responds with 200OK
9. Open the poc url of the path to execute the webshell to compromise the mobile device or mobile app
10. Successful reproduce of the arbitrary file upload vulnerability!
