Description

Multiple vulnerabilites due to insufficent filtering of the HTTP Header „Accept-Language“.
The unfiltered, but modified, variable „$langs->defaultlang“ gets used in multiple locations. This leads to XSS and SQL injection.

An incomplete list of files using this variable:

XSS
– /dolibarr/htdocs/admin/system/dolibarr.php (directly accessing $_SERVER[„HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE“])
– /dolibarr/htdocs/admin/mails_templates.php
– /dolibarr/htdocs/main.inc.php

SQL Injection
– /dolibarr/htdocs/admin/mails_templates.php
No exploit found to exfiltrate data due to the preprocessing of the value

Proof of Concept (PoC)

XSS: Submit a GET request to the given URL and intercept the request. Change the Accept-Language header as stated below and forward the request. A popup should occur displaying the cookie.

<html>

SQL injection: Submit a GET request to the given URL and intercept the request. Change the Accept-Language header as stated below and forward the request. An error message should be displayed revealing the query.

Fix

Validate the HTTP Header Accept-Language and ignore invalid values. Furthermore filter the value, according to its usage.
