CubeCart <= 5.2.0 (cubecart.class.php) PHP Object Injection 

[-] Software Link:


[-] Affected Versions:

All versions from 5.0.0 to 5.2.0

[-] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerable code is located in the Cubecart::_basket() method 
defined in the /classes/cubecart.class.php script:

519.  // Update shipping values
520.      if (isset($_POST['shipping']) && !empty($_POST['shipping'])) {
521.       $GLOBALS['cart']->set('shipping', 
522.          if (!isset($_POST['proceed'])) {
523.         httpredir(currentPage());
524.          }
525.  }

User input passed through the $_POST['shipping'] parameter is not 
properly sanitized before being
used in an unserialize() call at line 521. This can be exploited to 
inject an arbitrary object into
the application scope. For e.g. the destructor method of the "Config" 
class could be abused:

78.   public function __destruct() {
79.      //Do we need to write to the db
80.         if ($this->_write_db) {
81.                $this->_writeDB();
82.     }
83.   }

By sending a specially crafted serialized "Config" object, an attacker 
might be able to change the
application configuration settings with arbitrary values, and this can 
lead to make the application
vulnerable to malicious attacks such as Cross-Site Scripting, SQL 
Injection or Denial of Service.

[-] Solution:

Upgrade to version 5.2.1 or higher.
