2. Vulnerability Description
When importing a language from a language file, it is only checked that the file contains valid XML, but the original extension of the file is kept, which makes it possible to gain code execution by uploading a file containing PHP code.
Please note that admin credentials are required.
3. Proof of Concept
Create a language file with valid XML and a file name like en.php with PHP code inside:
Upload the file here: http://localhost/ecommerce/CubeCart-6.0.6/admin.php?_g=settings&node=language#lang_import
And visit it to execute the code: http://localhost/ecommerce/CubeCart-6.0.6/language/en.php?x=ls%20-alF
To mitigate this issue please upgrade at least to version 6.0.8:
Please note that a newer version might already be available.
