PostSubject: [solved] Feral Heart - huge bug on the website, possible forums database leak   Mon Jul 15, 2013 11:37 pm

I'm so (un)lucky...
I wasn't playing FH for about 6 months.
Yesterday (for me, I'm from Poland ;P) - 15 July 2013 about 18:30 UTC (20:30 in Poland) I've visited FH website for the first time in months.
I've tried to sign in but instead, by accident, I've downloaded source code.

Something was wrong with the php parser:
http://www.feral-heart.com/index.php - worked fine
http://feral-heart.com/index.php?option=com_alpharegistration&view=register&Itemid - returned this:
//Turn SSL off
$url = "http://". $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] . $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
if ($_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] != "80") {
    header("Location: $url");

echo JResponse::toString($mainframe->getCfg('gzip'));

I've tried the same thing with config.php, and unfortunately - it worked. :/

I wasn't able to log in on FH forum, so I tried to warn Red, or anyone from the staff in the game.

Around 19:30 UTC (21:30 in Poland) Red and Shady were online on FH.
I was whispering to him, but he wasn't answering.
In the same time FH website went down with an error:
Quote :
Database Error: Unable to connect to the database:Could not connect to MySQL

Some time later I've tried talking to Red again. I've asked him if he recived my messages, he replied something like "what messages?" and a few minutes later FH gameserver went down.

Now FH website looks like this:
We will be back shortly

I was (probably, I didn't checked that) able to use data from config.php to download SQL database, remove files by FTP etc, but I'm not a blackhat. I'm not even a hacker. I'm a webmaster that konws something about IT security, but not really much.
If I was able to do this - there's a pretty high possibility that someone, whos not a white-hat found this bug too and used it to download FH database.

So - if you are an FH player change your password, just in case.

I hope that Red will check the server logs to check if anyone downloaded the database and give an official announcement about this.

And sorry for my bad english.

Edit: FH website is back.

Edit 2:
Quote :
The issues was brought to Raz earlier, and he took care of the issue in the forum. He also mentioned passwords, and he assured there is no reason to change passwords, since they are safe now.

Thank you for caring, though, but the issue has been resolved.

Locking this since everything is in check again.
