Technical Details & Description:
A persistent input validation web vulnerability has been discovered in the QWE DL v2.0.1 mobile ios web-application.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject own malicious script codes with persistent attack vector to compromise
the mobile web-application from the application-side.
The vulnerability is located in the `path` parameter on creation of new folders. Remote attackers are able to inject own malicious
persistent script code by manipulation of the path name variable. The injection point is the path name information and the execution
point occurs in the file ui affected index and sub folders.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in session hijacking, persistent phishing attacks, persistent external redirects
to malicious source and persistent manipulation of affected or connected application modules.
[+] Create Folder
[+] Sub Folders
Proof of Concept (PoC):
The persistent web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with network access with low user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.
Manual steps to reproduce the vulnerability ...
1. Install the local application
2. Open the web interfact with the local mobile device ip or domain
3. Add new folder and inject payload as name
4. Save malicious payload via post method request
5. Execution of payload occurs in affected main path or sub folders
6. Successful reproduce of the persistent web vulnerability!
Malicious Source: Execution Index & Sub Folders
