Concrete5 8.5.5 Phar Deserialization
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Concrete5 <= 8.5.5 (Logging Settings) Phar Deserialization Vulnerability
------------------------------------------------------------------------


[-] Software Link:

[-] Affected Versions:

Version 8.5.5 and prior versions.


[-] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerable code is located within the 
/concrete/controllers/single_page/dashboard/system/environment/logging.php 
script. Specifically, into the Logging::update_logging()  method:

61.    public function update_logging()
62.    {
63.        $config = $this->app->make('config');
64.        $request = $this->request;
65.
66.        if (!$this->token->validate('update_logging')) {
67.            return 
$this->showError($this->token->getErrorMessage());
68.        }
69.
70.        // Load in variables from the request
71.        $mode = (string) $request->request->get('logging_mode') === 
'advanced' ? 'advanced' : 'simple';
72.        $handler = $mode === 'simple' ? (string) 
$request->request->get('handler', 'database') : null;
73.        $logFile = $handler === 'file' ? (string) 
$request->request->get('logFile') : null;
74.        $enableDashboardReport = 
$request->request->get('enable_dashboard_report') ? true : false;
75.        $loggingLevel = strtoupper((string) 
$request->request->get('logging_level'));
76.        $intLogErrorsPost = 
$request->request->get('ENABLE_LOG_ERRORS') === 1 ? 1 : 0;
77.        $intLogEmailsPost = 
$request->request->get('ENABLE_LOG_EMAILS') === 1 ? 1 : 0;
78.        $intLogApiPost = $request->request->get('ENABLE_LOG_API') 
=== 1 ? 1 : 0;
79.
80.
81.        // Handle 'file' based logging
82.        if ($handler === 'file') {
83.            $directory = dirname($logFile);
84.
85.            // Validate the file name
86.            if (pathinfo($logFile, PATHINFO_EXTENSION) !== 'log') {
87.                return $this->showError(t('The filename provided 
must be a valid filename and end with .log'));
88.            }
89.
90.            // Validate the file path, create the log file if needed
91.            if (!file_exists($logFile)) {


User input passed through the "logFile" request parameter is not 
properly sanitized before being used in a call to the file_exists() 
function at line 91. This can be exploited by malicious users to inject 
arbitrary PHP objects into the application scope (PHP Object Injection 
via phar:// stream wrapper), allowing them to carry out a variety of 
attacks, such as executing arbitrary PHP code. Successful exploitation 
of this vulnerability requires an administrator account.
