--------------------------------------------------------------
qdPM <= 9.1 (executeExport) PHP Object Injection Vulnerability
--------------------------------------------------------------


[-] Software Link:

http://qdpm.net


[-] Affected Versions:

Version 9.1 and prior versions.


[-] Vulnerability Description:

The vulnerability is located in the /core/apps/qdPM/modules/timeReport/actions/actions.class.php
script, specifically within the timeReportActions::executeExport() method:

295. public function executeExport(sfWebRequest $request)
296. {
297. $separator = "t";
298. $format = $request->getParameter('format');
299. $filename = $request->getParameter('filename');
300.
301. $export = unserialize($request->getParameter('export'));

User input passed through the "export" request parameter is not properly sanitized before being
used in a call to the unserialize() function at line 301. This can be exploited by malicious users
to inject arbitrary PHP objects into the application scope, allowing them to carry out a variety
of attacks, such as executing arbitrary OS commands.
