Threat: Ab Stealer Web Panel
Vulnerability: Unauthenticated Remote Persistent XSS
Description: The "Ab Stealer" web Panel By KingDomSc for "AbBuild v.1.0.exe" is used to browse victim information "Get All Victims Passwords, With One Click". Third-party attackers who can reach the "Ab Stealer" server can write plaintext files to Panelpsw, injecting persistent Cross Site Scripting payloads without the need for authentication. The XSS payloads will execute whenever an "Ab Stealer" admin visits the Web UI or clicks an infected link to view victim information. The sending of HTTP POST requests to POST.php write files "ip-1.txt, ip-2.txt" etc to the "psw" dir. These textfiles typically contain victim information IP, Computername, Country, Date. However, since the PHP code has no security we can inject malicious client side Javascript instead. This can result in data theft and disclosure of the PHPSESSID token or GEO location disclosure for a logged on user of the "Ab Stealer" Web Panel etc.

Ab Stealers POST.php file doesn't sanitize input for HTTP GET requests, when writing user supplied data to files to it's "psw" web directory.


if (isset($_GET['online'])) {
$path = 'psw';
$files = array_diff(scandir($path), array('.', '..'));
$CountFiles = count($files) + 1;
$FileName = 'ip-'.$CountFiles.'.txt';
$ip = $_POST['ip'];
$computername = $_POST['computername'];
$installdate = $_POST['installdate'];
$country = $_POST['country'];
$FFD = '{"ip":"'.$ip.'","computername":"'.$computername.'","country":"'.$country.'","date":"'.$installdate.'"}';
$myfile = fopen('psw/'.$FileName, "w") or die("Unable to open file!");
fwrite($myfile, $FFD);
echo $CountFiles;

Moreover, Panel.php doesn't use htmlspecialchars OR htmlentities, to properly escape output when echoing untrusted user supplied data.

1) Create the psw directory as the Panel setup doesn't create it when installing

2) curl.exe http://AB_STEALER_SERVER/Panel/POST.php?online=1 --data "ip=x.x.x.x&computername='''%2bdocument.cookie)%3C/script%3E&installdate=&country=HELL"

3) Visit Ab Stealer Web UI and or click an infected link.
