# email__________: steventhomasseeley!gmail!com
# tested on______: the interwebz & a LAMP stack using all 3 applications :)

# - Open Journal Systems <= v2.3.6
# - Open Harvester Systems <= v2.3.1

#
# Description:
# ------------
# PKP has developed free, open source software for the management, publishing, and indexing of journals and conferences. 
# Open Journal Systems and Open #Conference Systems increase access to knowledge, improve management, and reduce publishing costs. 
# Open Harvester systems allows the creation of #centralized search services on metadata from Open Archives Initiative-compliant databases.
# 
# Vuln description:
# -----------------
# There is a few file upload vulnerabilities in the administrative interfaces of these applications that are 
# unprotected and allow any peepz to CSRF it. I'm sick of vendors ignoring me on this kind of bug.
#
# Exploit requirement: 
# --------------------
# - Find the target conference/journal/archive: just visit http://[target]/[path]/index.php
#   It will be a string value in a URI embeded in the page. Just use the first conference/journal/archive, and it will be id 1.
# - You will need to embed the link into the application too and hope the admin gets curious..
#   Maybe you could make a 'submission' to the conference, journal or archive entry or send a kind email ;)
