Vulnerability: Session Fixation, Reflected XSS, Code Execution
Affected Software: PivotX (http://pivotx.net/)
Affected Version: 2.3.10 (probably also prior versions)
Patched Version: 2.3.11
Risk: Medium-High


Session Fixation
================

   Risk
       ----

  Medium; If victim clicks link and logs in, then an attacker can log in
as the victim

      POC
        ---

   1. Send victim to:
http://localhost/pivotx_latest/pivotx/fileupload.php?sess=123
       2. Victim logs in
  3. Attacker sets PHPSESSID=123 and is now logged in as well


File Upload: Code Execution
===========================

 Risk
       ----

  Medium; attacker can upload PHP files and thus gain code execution

    Description
        -----------

   It is possible to bypass the check for disallowed file extensions with
a filename like foo.php.php, which will be renamed to foo.php_.php,
leading to code execution.


Reflected XSS
=============

   Risk
       ----

  Medium; arbitrary JavaScript execution

        POC
        ---

            PHP_SELF is user supplied, and thus should not be considered
secure. It seems that most or all forms are affected by this.

       
http://localhost/pivotx_latest/pivotx/index.php/"><script>alert('xsstest')</script></script>?page=page&uid=3
   
http://localhost/pivotx_latest/pivotx/index.php/"><script>alert('xsstest')</script></script>?page=templates
 
http://localhost/pivotx_latest/pivotx/index.php/"><script>alert('xsstest')</script></script>?page=fileexplore
               [... etc ...]
