# Title: adobe connect - Local File Disclosure / Download [security feature bypass vulnerability] # Author: h4shur # date:2021.01.16-2023.02.17 # CVE: CVE-2023-22232 # Vendor Homepage: https://www.adobe.com # Software Link: https://www.adobe.com/products/adobeconnect.html # Version: 11.4.5 and earlier, 12.1.5 and earlier # User interaction: None # Tested on: Windows 10 & Google Chrome, kali linux & firefox ### Summary: Adobe Connect versions 11.4.5 (and earlier), 12.1.5 (and earlier) are affected by an Improper Access Control vulnerability that could result in a Security feature bypass. An attacker could leverage this vulnerability to impact the integrity of a minor feature. Exploitation of this issue does not require user interaction. ### Description : There are many web applications in the world, each of which has vulnerabilities due to developer errors, and this is a problem for all of them, and even the best of them, like the "adobe connect" program, have vulnerabilities that occur every month. They are found and fixed by the team. * What is LFD bug? LFD bug stands for Local File Disclosure / Download, which generally allows the attacker to read and download files within the server, so it can be considered a very dangerous bug in the web world and programmers must be aware of it. Be careful and maintain security against this bug * Intruder access level with LFD bug The level of access using this bug can be even increased to the level of access to the website database in such a way that the hacker reads sensitive files inside the server that contain database entry information and enters the database and by extracting the information The admin will have a high level of access * Identify vulnerable sites To search for LFD bugs, you should check the site inputs. If there is no problem with receiving ./ characters, you can do the test to read the files inside the server if they are vulnerable. Enter it and see if it is read or not, or you can use files inside the server such as / etc / passwd / .. and step by step using ../ to return to the previous path to find the passwd file * And this time the "lfd" in "adobe connect" bug: To download and exploit files, you must type the file path in the "download-url" variable and the file name and extension in the "name" variable. You can download the file by writing the file path and file name and extension. When you have written the file path, file name and extension in the site address variables, a download page from Adobe Connect will open for you, with "Save to My Computer file name]" written in the download box and a file download link at the bottom of the download box, so you can download the file. * There are values inside the url that do not allow a file other than this file to be downloaded. * Values: sco_id and tickets But if these values are cleared, you will see that reloading is possible without any obstacles At another address, you can download multiple files as a zip file. We put the address of the files in front of the variable "ffn" and if we want to add the file, we add the variable "ffn" again and put the address of the file in front of it. The "download_type" variable is also used to specify the zip extension. ### POC : https://target.com/[folder]/download?download-url=[URL]&name=[file.type] https://target.com/[folder]/download?output=output&download_type=[Suffix]&ffn=[URL]&baseContentUrl=[base file folder] ### References: https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2023-22232 https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2023-22232 https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/connect/apsb23-05.html
