Omnistar Mailer v7.2 - Multiple Web Vulnerabilities
Common Vulnerability Scoring System:
The Omnistar Mailer software was developed because of the need that was found in the industry to easily manage
email marketing campaigns without having much technical experience. After reviewing feedback from various users
that had used email mailing list managers, it was determined that many of the current solutions that are on the
market are cumbersome and overly complex. Most users of email marketing solutions desire a simple solution were
they can easily add email list campaigns and track the success of them. There of course are many other features
that add value to the products, however the main function is to send out mass emails, manage the opt-in /
opt-out process. After reviewing the feedback of these users and studying the current solutions on the market,
we developed what we call Omnistar Mailer. We feel our product combines simplicity with a robust set of features
and functions that should meet the needs of most users.
The Omnistar Mailer software is one of the flag ship solutions from Omnistar Interactive. Our entire goal when
developing any of our solutions has been to make it so easy to use, that any non-technical person can successfully
use the software. Everyday we strive to make more and more improvements to the software so that it becomes better
and better. To make this goal a reality, we actively solicit feedback from our customers so that we stay on the
pulse of their needs. It is only through this interactive dialogue that we can implement those features that make
sense to our customers. It is our customers that drive our development process and make sure that our software has
the most desired components and features.

The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered multiple Web Vulnerabilities in the Omnistar Mailer v7.2 Email Marketing Software.
2012-10-01: Public or Non-Public Disclosure
Product: Omnistar Mailer v7.2
Multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities are detected in the Omnistar Mailer v7.2 Email Marketing Software.
The vulnerabilities allow an attacker (remote) or local low privileged user account to execute a SQL commands on the
affected application dbms. The vulnerabilities are located in the responder, preview, pages, navlinks, contacts,
register and index modules with the bound vulnerable id & form_id parameters. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability
results in dbms & application compromise. Exploitation requires no user inter action & without privileged user account.
A persistent input validation vulnerability is detected in the Omnistar Mailer v7.2 Email Marketing Software.
The bugs allow remote attackers to implement/inject malicious script code on the application side (persistent).
The persistent vulnerability is located in the Create Website Forms module with the bound vulnerable form name parameters.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to session hijacking (manager/admin) or stable (persistent) context manipulation.
Exploitation requires low user inter action & privileged user account.
[+] Customise Interface -> Create Website Forms
[+] Create Standard Registration Form -> Add form
[+] Form Name
Proof of Concept:
The SQL injection vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers without user inter action. For demonstration or reproduce ...
--- SQL Exception ---
SQL error (You have an error in your SQL syntax;
check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ''9''' at line 3)
The persistent input validation vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with low required user inter action & low
privileged user account. For demonstration or reproduce ...
To create the form the attacker should to go to
Customise Interface -> Create Website Forms -> Create Standard Registration Form -> Add form
Then inject the malicious script code i.e., <iframe src=www.vuln-lab.com onload=alert("VL")/>
When the user browses the forms page in the control panel, or any user trying to register for the website,
the persistent injected script code will be executed out of the web application context.
The security risk of the blind SQL injection vulnerability is estimated as critical.
The security risk of the persistent input validation vulnerability is estimated as medium(+).
