FirstBlood-#445[COLLAB with isitbug] Invite code is literally "test"
This issue was discovered on FirstBlood v2

Nice play,didn't think at first that the invite code would literally be test,even though I did notice the bolding of testing in the policy.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to /register.php and for the invite code put test along with any username you want
  2. Boom you're in


Very easily guessable invite code leads to unauthorized users creating doctor accounts.
After gaining a reverse shell on the machine using the RCE and accessing the MySQL database(using password found in /app/firstblood/include/config.php) I found the test invite code belongs to TestDoctor.

id      username        password        session invite_code
2       TestDoctor      test            test

PoC after inserting the test invite code -->

P3 Medium

Endpoint: /register.php

Parameter: inviteCode

Payload: test

FirstBlood ID: 24
Vulnerability Type: Auth issues

The old invite code was deleted but when testing FirstBlood v2 the developers accidentally left the test code working.
