CWE-256: Plaintext Storage of a Password
CWE-522: Insufficiently Protected Credentials
CWE-200: Information Exposure
CWE-592: Authentication Bypass Issues
Access : Remote (All Vulnerabilities)
Complexity : Low (All Vulnerabilities)

Currently, many resellers are using this software to manage multiple customer domains, which in many cases also exposes ssh and mysql ports to the outside world.

All known versions between 0.29 and 0.37.9 are affected. Earlier versions may be impacted as well.
ver 0.37.9
ver 0.30.6
ver.0.29.15
ver 0.29.13

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#1 Plaintext Storage of a Password
By browsing directly to http://<IP>/ehcp/ehcpbackup.php sensitive information regarding the web server, local OS and SQL DB are exposed without authentication. This includes MySQL root password in clear text. These credentials can be used to log directly into PHPMYADMIN. The ehcpbackup.php file also exposes the dir listing of the ehcp directory, local file paths, all databases and domains associated with that EHCP build as well as domain useranmes.

 As with almost every file in the EHCP software suite, the permissions are set to -rw-r--r--

Access : Remote
Complexity : Low
Impact : Complete
CWE-256: Plaintext Storage of a Password
CWE-200: Information Exposure
CWE-592: Authentication Bypass Issues

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#2 Unauthenticated File upload
Unauthenticated file upload By browsing to any of the following four URLs, a remote attacker can upload any file which then is stored in a directory called /phptmpdir/ . It does not appear to validate either the user uploading nor the file type.

http://<IP>/ehcp/test/up2.php
http://<IP>/ehcp/test/upload2.php
http://<IP>/ehcp/test/upload.php
http://<IP>/ehcp/test/up.php

Access : Remote
Complexity : Low
Impact :
CWE-592: Authentication Bypass Issues
CWE-434: Unrestricted Upload of File

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#3 Information Disclosure
The following URL pathways can be remotely browsed to without authentication. They all give various amounts of information disclosure which exposes almost all of the underworking directory and functions of the Hosting software, SQL tables and database queries.

We have already fixed most of these, in the version 0.37.12.b at ehcp.net
You may look at announcement at ehcp.net, first post.

The rest will be fixed in 15-30 days. The remaining are either no-bug, or minor issues.

Anyway, thank you for the information.
