Comersus BackOffice Administrator Authentication Bypass Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for administrator authentication bypass vulnerability in Comersus BackOffice

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains an ASP application that is prone to a
SQL injection attack.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running Comersus Cart, an ASP shopping
cart application.

The version of Comersus Cart installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'adminName' and 'adminpassword' fields of the
'backofficeLite/comersus_backoffice_menu.asp' script before using them
in a database query. An unauthenticated remote attacker can leverage
this issue to bypass authentication and gain administrative access to
the application or launch other attacks against the affected
application and its underlying database.
