✍️ Description

Dolibarr is vulnerable to an IDOR vulnerability which can lead to Privilege Escalation.

🕵️‍♂️ Proof of Concept

1.Download and Install Dolibarr from Dolibarr

2.Create two New users with the following permissions(let the new user be SAM and John)
-Delete or disable other users
-Read other users and groups

3.Now Login as the new user(SAM).Sam just have the permission to Disable other users other than admins.The Disable button is not avilable for admin profiles.

4.Now visit Johns profile by Clicking List of user in the left panel,You will find a disable button to disable John's profile. Click on it and intercept the request . A request similar to the snippet will be made

GET /user/card.php?action=disable&id=4 HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost/
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:83.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/83.0
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Connection: close

5.Replace the &id= parameter with the ID of Admin.

I know the steps are a bit complicated. Incase if you get stuck somewhere feel free to ping me 😅


A normal user can kick the super admin out of the platform and ,if the there is only one super admin then no one will be able to manage the Platform after.
