Secunia Advisory SA30619

Where:

From remote

Impact:

Cross Site Scripting, System access

Solution Status:

Vendor Patch

CVE Reference(s):

Description


Two vulnerabilities have been reported in TYPO3, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks, and by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system.

1) The vulnerability is caused due to an error in the handling of file uploads, if a filename has multiple file extensions (e.g. "file.php.1") or starts with a dot character (e.g. ".htaccess"). This can be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires a certain server configuration. It also requires either valid backend user credentials and access to filemounts, or that frontend plugins using "t3lib_div::verifyFilenameAgainstDenyPattern()" or "processFiles()" to handle file uploads are installed.

2) Input passed in unspecified parameters to fe_adminlib.inc is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that a frontend extension based on fe_adminlib.inc is installed - e.g. direct_mail_subscription, feuser_admin, or kb_md5fepw.

The vulnerabilities are reported in all 3.x versions, 4.0.x versions below 4.0.9, 4.1.x versions below 4.1.7, and in 4.2.0.


Solution:
Update to version 4.0.9, 4.1.7, or 4.2.1.

Provided and/or discovered by:
1) The vendor credits Michiel Roos and Marcus Krause.
2) The vendor credits Christian Seifert, Jeroen van Iddekinge, and Arnd Messer.
