ZwiiCMS 12.2.04 Remote Code Execution
# Exploit Title: ZwiiCMS 12.2.04 Remote Code Execution (Authenticated) 
# Date: 03/06/2023
# Exploit Author: Hadi Mene
# Vendor Homepage:
# Version: 12.2.04 and potentially lower versions 
# CVE: CVE-2020-10567
# Category: webapps

ZwiiCMS 12.2.04 uses "Responible FileManager" 9.14.0 for its file manager feature. ZwiiCMS is vulnerable to CVE-2020-10567 as it is possible for
an authenticated user to use ajax_calls.php to upload a php file via a base64 encoded file and gain Remote Code Execution 
due to a lack of extension check on the uploaded file.

Original CVE author : hackoclipse

Vulnerable code (ajax_calls.php) :

// there is no extension check on $_POST['name'] and the content of $_POST['url'] can be b64 decoded without being
necessarily an image

81case 'save_img':
82$info = pathinfo($_POST['name']);
83  $image_data = $_POST['url'];
85  if (preg_match('/^data:image\/(\w+);base64,/', $image_data, $type)) {
86       $image_data = substr($image_data, strpos($image_data, ',') + 1);
87       $type = strtolower($type[1]); // jpg, png, gif
89       $image_data = base64_decode($image_data);
