# + Affected Software .: Ultimate PHP Board (myUPB) <= 2.0b1
# + Vendor ............: http://www.myupb.com/
# + Download ..........: http://fileserv.myupb.com/upb2.0B1.zip
# + Description .......: "Ultimate PHP Board is a free discussion forum that can be used as a free alternative to UBB or vBulletin"
# + Dork ..............: "Powered by UPB"
# + Class .............: Remote Code Execution
# + Risk ..............: High (Remote Code Execution)

# +-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# + Details:
# + Ultimate PHP Board chat/login.php does not sanatize the $username ($_GET["username"])
# + variable before writing it to chat/text.php on line 28, arbitrary php code can be written
# + then executed by visiting chat/text.php.
# +
# + Vulnerable Code: 
# + chat/login.php, line(s) 23-28:
# + -> 23: $filename = "text.php";
# + -> 24: $fileAr= file($filename);
# + -> 25: exec("cat /dev/null > '$filename'");
# + -> 26: $fd = fopen( $filename, "a+" );
# + -> 27: $filemessage = "<font size='$font_s' face='$font_face' color='$font_color_main'><b>$username entered at $date</b></font><br>\n";
# + -> 28: fputs($fd,$filemessage);
# +
# + Proof of Concept:
# + http://[target]/[path]/chat/login.php?option=chat&username=[code]
# + http://[target]/[path]/chat/text.php
