Simple Water Refilling Station Management System 1.0 - Remote Code Execution (RCE) through File Upload

ID: 104652
CVE: None
Download vulnerable application: None
# Exploit Title: 
# Exploit Author: Matt Sorrell
# Date: 2021-08-14
# Vendor Homepage:
# Software Link:
# Version: 1.0
# Tested On: Windows Server 2019 and XAMPP 7.4.22

# The Simple Water Refilling Station Management System 
# contains a file upload vulnerability that allows for remote 
# code execution against the target.  This exploit requires 
# the user to be authenticated, but a SQL injection in the login form 
# allows the authentication controls to be bypassed.  The application does not perform
# any validation checks against the uploaded file at "/classes/SystemSettings.php"
# and the directory it is placed in allows for execution of PHP code.
