IPS Community Suite <= 184.108.40.206 (previewBlock) PHP Code Injection Vulnerability
• Software Link:
• Affected Versions:
Version 220.127.116.11 and prior versions.
• Vulnerability Description:
The vulnerability exists because the
IPS\cms\modules\front\pages\_builder::previewBlock() method allows to pass arbitrary content to the
IPS\_Theme::runProcessFunction() method, which will be used in a call to the
eval() PHP function. This can be exploited to inject and execute arbitrary PHP code.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires an account with permission to manage the sidebar (such as a Moderator or Administrator) and the “cms” application to be enabled.
Apply the vendor patch or upgrade to version 4.6.0 or later.
