Osclass <= 3.4.2 (ajax.php) Local File Inclusion Vulnerability
--------------------------------------------------------------


[-] Software Link:

http://osclass.org/ 


[-] Affected Versions:

Version 3.4.2 and probably prior versions.


[-] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerable code is located in the /oc-includes/osclass/controller/ajax.php script:

225.         case 'custom': // Execute via AJAX custom file
226.           if(Params::existParam('route')) {
227.                $routes = Rewrite::newInstance()->getRoutes();
228.                    $rid = Params::getParam('route');
229.                    $file = '../';
230.               if(isset($routes[$rid]) && isset($routes[$rid]['file'])) {
231.                     $file = $routes[$rid]['file'];
232.                   }
233.          } else {
234.                   // DEPRECATED: Disclosed path in URL is deprecated, use routes instead
235.                 // This will be REMOVED in 3.4
236.                 $file = Params::getParam('ajaxfile');
237.            }
238.     
239.                if($file == '') {
240.                echo json_encode(array('error' => 'no action defined'));
241.              break;
242.             }
243.     
244.                // valid file?
245.                 if( stripos($file, '../') !== false  || stripos($file, '/admin/') !== false ) ...
246.              echo json_encode(array('error' => 'no valid ajaxFile'));
247.              break;
248.             }
249.     
250.                if( !file_exists(osc_plugins_path() . $file) ) {
251.                   echo json_encode(array('error' => "ajaxFile doesn't exist"));
252.                    break;
253.             }
254.     
255.                require_once osc_plugins_path() . $file;

User input passed through the "ajaxfile" request parameter when handling a "custom" action within
the AJAX interface is not properly sanitized being used in a call to the "require_once()" function
at line 255. This can be exploited to include arbitrary local files and execute arbitrary PHP code
when the application is running on Windows.
