Multiple Security Issue of php code execution exists in BigTree CMS Less than 4.2.18


        $file = $_FILES["file"]["tmp_name"];
	// Clean up existing area
	$cache_root = SERVER_ROOT."cache/package/";

	// Unzip the extension
	include BigTree::path("inc/lib/pclzip.php");
	$zip = new PclZip($file);

	// See if this was downloaded off GitHub (will have a single root folder)
	$zip_root = BigTreeUpdater::zipRoot($zip);
	if ($zip_root) {
		$files = $zip->extract(PCLZIP_OPT_PATH,$cache_root,PCLZIP_OPT_REMOVE_PATH,$zip_root);
	} else {
		$files = $zip->extract(PCLZIP_OPT_PATH,$cache_root);

we can upload a zip file which containing the PHP code, then Unpacked to SERVER_ROOT/cache/package/xxx/yyy.php

1、build extension
2、Add modules, templates, callouts, field types, feeds, and settings to your extension.
3、Add additional files to your extension.
4、create extension
5、download extension(a zip file)
6、modify webshell content to php file in extension(a zip file)
7、install extension(Only upload can, do not install,to prevent being deleted)
8、the shell in SERVER_ROOT/cache/package/xxx/yyy.php

The same vulnerability exists in the file \BigTree-CMS-4.2.18\core\admin\modules\developer\packages\install\unpack.php

thank you~

Uploading third party code to your site is always a risk. Without code-signing extensions/packages there's no way around this.
