I'm pentesting this web application developed in ASP.NET.

I've found that I can upload any file as profile photo. When I later visit the profile page the site tries to display it like this:

<img src="../attachments/open.aspx?Key=10350&ute=20069" />

So I have the possibility to upload any kind of file and they will be requested as images, but I don't have any control on the image path.

Also I know that the image is uploaded as binary in the database, so is not phisically in the webserver.

Is there a way to exploit this? I haven't found anything yet.

EDIT: since my question has been put on hold and I don't know how to narrow down my question, can someone suggest me what kind of vulnerability should I look for? What course of action would an expert take?

  • Whoops, reading comprehension fail with the answer I had. I missed the fact that "open.aspx" is probably a script meant to open image files, and somehow thought that it was a filename you'd supplied. Bedtime for me, I think. – Ethan Kaminski Jul 23 '15 at 13:12

    You might try with SVG. See blackhat.com/docs/us-14/materials/… – Steffen Ullrich Jul 23 '15 at 14:53

    Are you sure it is uploaded to a file system? Could it be that the images are uploaded in a database? What happens if you try nullbyte injection? Meaning, upload a shell.aspx%00.png or something similar. – Jeroen - IT Nerdbox Jul 24 '15 at 8:01
  • I'm quite sure they are uploaded in a database. I'm looking into nullbyte injection and I'm pursuing the SVG way too. I'll post the results. – misleadingTitle Jul 24 '15 at 8:03
