[PATCH AVAIL.] JD-WordPress Vulnerability

Postby Elpie » Sat Jul 29, 2006 1:50 am

Remote file inclusion vulnerability.
JD-WordPress for Joomla is prone to multiple remote file-include vulnerabilities because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

An attacker can exploit these issues to include arbitrary remote files containing malicious PHP code and execute it in the context of the webserver process. This may allow the attacker to compromise the application and to gain access to the underlying system.

Version 2.0-1.0 RC2 is vulnerable to these issues; prior versions may also be affected.
The developer has been notified.

Has there been any headway made with uncovering this vulnerability? This has me greatly concerned!

The exploits that have been published both appear to rely on register_globals being on. If you have register_globals off and are not running globals emulation 1 (globals.php in Joomla) you should be fine.
While I personally wouldnt use htaccess to block attempts, RobS's htaccess will also block any attempts to exploit JD-Wordpress.

Joomla!'s RG emulation is probably safe as it does a fair job of sanitizing input but I haven't thouroughly tested it myself, just browed through it a bit.

Well have tested now during the weekend local with RG on and allow_furl on together with Joomla! 1.0.10 also on a webhosting of a friend with Rg on and allow_furl on and joomla! 1.0.10 and could not reproduce this but to avoid any constellation which may allow this i have made a patch where i replaced the call

require_once( $mosConfig_absolute_path .'/components/com_jd-wp/wp-config.php' );

into

require(dirname(__FILE__) . '/wp-config.php');

to be sure.

If you normally have Rg off you should be save, as i was even with On not able to hack it with Joomla! 1.0.10

Hi RobS,

I ran across your notice that JD-WordPress was on the Security Risk list, but I don't see the link to the patch you mention here. Please point me to it.

Thanks,
Steve

I've just patched JD-WP and the commenting system failed to work afterwards. But soon i realised there was a typo error on line 64:

elseif ( !is_email($comment_author_email))

should have been:

elseif ( !is_wp_email($comment_author_email))

Nothing major and apart from that everything else went smoothly. Thanks for the security patch :)

P.S. i have attached the patch here to inlcude the line above and nothing else.

JD-WordPress is no longer supported.
But a fork of this Joomla component called mojoBlog can be found on Joomlify.com

mojoBlog is still in beta, running under Joomla 1.0.13

I'm sure Kevin will have Joomlify.com back up soon. The datacenter was having some issues but it looked like those were being addressed last week. I don't know what this current blackout was caused by, but waiting on files directly from Joomlify.com would be the best place to get current versions of mojoBlog (beta 0.16).
