[waraxe-2004-SA#020] - Multiple vulnerabilities in PostNuke 0.726 Phoenix

Author: Janek Vind "waraxe"
Date: 18. April 2004
Location: Estonia, Tartu
Web: http://www.waraxe.us/index.php?modname=sa&id=20

Affected software description:

PostNuke: The Phoenix Release (

PostNuke is an open source, open developement content management system
(CMS). PostNuke started as a fork from PHPNuke (http://www.phpnuke.org) and
provides many enhancements and improvements over the PHP-Nuke system. PostNuke
is still undergoing development but a large number of core functions are now
stabilising and a complete API for third-party developers is now in place.
If you would like to help develop this software, please visit our homepage
at http://noc.postnuke.com/
You can also visit us on our IRC Server irc.postnuke.com channel
Or at the Community Forums located at:


A. Full path disclosure:

A1 - legacy code

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: deletenotice() in D:apache_wwwrootpostnuke0726admin.php on line 87

It seems, that this function - deletenotice() - is removed in new versions, but reference still exists.
Btw, anyone without any authentication can provoke this error, not only admins.

A2 - path disclosure through sql injection

Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in D:apache_wwwrootpostnuke0726modulesNS-Pollscomments.php on line 454

This is sql injection bug through variable named "thold", but here we use it for path disclosure.

B. Cross-site scripting aka XSS:

Exploiting XSS in PostNuke is difficult task, because PostNuke will filter out most of the "useful"
tags, like <script>. But anyway, there exists XSS bugs and they can be exploited, using some
custom technics (therefore loosing crossbrowser compatibility of the sploit).

B1 - XSS through unsanitaized variable "$order"


C. Sql injection:

C1 - critical sql injection in NS-Polls

This is devastating case of the sql injection, because it can be used to pull out from database
ANY data, attacker needs.


... and we will see admin's username, email and password's md5 hash in plaintext ;)

Remark - this sploit needs mysql version >=4.x with UNION functionality enabled!


Greets to torufoorum members and to all bugtraq readers in Estonia! Tervitused!
Special greets to UT Bee Clan members at http://bees.tk ! "Boom!!" ;)
