• Affected Versions:
Version 12.2.0 and prior versions.
Version 12.0.2 and prior versions.
Version 11.0.5 and prior versions.
• Vulnerability Description:
When handling the “save” action within the “Notes” module the application allows uploading of any kind of file into the /upload/ directory. This one is protected by the main SugarCRM .htaccess file, i.e. it doesn’t allow access/execution for PHP files. However, this behaviour can be overridden if a subdirectory contains another .htaccess file. So, an attacker can leverage the vulnerability to firstly upload a new .htaccess file and then to upload the PHP code they want to execute.
• Proof of Concept:
Upgrade to version 12.3.0, 12.0.3, 11.0.6, or later.
