Image removal vulnerability in Facebook polling feature

Delete any
Image on Facebook



When I was checking out facebook’s new features, I noticed that polling feature were added to the posts so I start working on it.


Whenever a user tries to create a poll, a request containing gif URL or image id will be sent,
poll_question_data[options][][associated_image_id] contains the uploaded image id.

When this field value changes to any other images ID, that image will be shown in poll.
After sending request with another user image ID, a poll containing that image would be created.
Our uploaded image has been replaced by victim’s image
At the end when we try to delete the poll, victim’s image would be deleted with it by facebook as a poll property.

I appreciate Facebook security team for resolving this vulnerability quickly.
