Let's assume we are working with PhpNuke 6.x - 7.3
Look at the beginning of the index.php and search for something like this:

Code:

require_once("mainfile.php");
$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = "modules.php";
$row = $db->sql_fetchrow($db->sql_query("SELECT main_module from ".$prefix."_main"));
$name = $row['main_module'];
$home = 1;


Now insert right after "require_once()" this new sentence:

Code:

$modpath = '';


So after patching the code it will look like this:

Code:

require_once("mainfile.php");
$modpath = '';
$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = "modules.php";
$row = $db->sql_fetchrow($db->sql_query("SELECT main_module from ".$prefix."_main"));
$name = $row['main_module'];
$home = 1;


In fact, the only thing you just did was the proper initializing of the variable $modpath. And that's enough to evade potential problems Cool

Hi waraxe,

My first post on the board, but you've certainly seen my feedback on your disclosures.

This patch breaks several websites.

The problem is the setting of

Code:
$modpath = '';


If this is set to
Code:
$modpath = $nukeurl;


then it works again, but I have noticed bugs currently in $nukeurl. You may find some fun with these. $nukeurl can be configured with just about anything, and it's used as some important links (like home).


J.


Also wanted to say I'm a fan of full-disclosure, since I don't beleive PHP-Nuke would be anywhere nearly as secure today if it wasn't for full-disclosure.

There is a better way to fix this problem.
Just remove
$modpath
completely and use this:

define("modpath",<definition>);

I used this inside my index.php and modules.php
this is more secured, because an const. can't be overwritten.
Wink
just a little magic will do it

Yep, you are right, constants are good, because they can't be "poisoned" by attacker.
