Exploitation Technique:
=======================
Remote


Severity Level:
===============
Medium


Technical Details & Description:
================================
An unrestricted file upload & stored cross site scripting vulnerabilities has been discovered in the official Perch v3.0.3 content management system.

The security vulnerability is located in the `Asset Title` input field & `Select File` upload file of the vulnerable `Adding a New Asset` module POST method request.
The `Asset Title` validation input field allows to execute any injected payload string code that is stored in the database management system. The `Select File` field
is not parsed and allows a limited admin to upload unrestricted files to the web-server system.

The security risk of the stored cross site scripting & unrestricted file upload vulnerability is estimated as medium (CVSS 3.8). Exploitation of the (non-persistent & persistent)
input validation web vulnerability requires a privileged web-application user account and medium user interaction. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results
in session hijacking, non-persistent and persistent phishing attacks, non-persistent and persistent external redirects to malicious source, non-persistent and persistent
manipulation of affected or connected application modules.


Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
The unrestricted file upload & stored cross site scripting web vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers with privileged user account and with Medium 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 ...

9. Click on Submit button
10. Open The "UserLab & Primary Admin " Accounts
11. Go To Listing Assets
12. The execution of the vulnerability by an limited admin are Stored and published in all Users "Listing assets" module
13. Successful reproduce of the vulnerability!
