[GLSA-200508-21] phpWebSite: Arbitrary command execution through XML-RPC and SQL injection

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
phpWebSite: Arbitrary command execution through XML-RPC and SQL injection

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200508-21
(phpWebSite: Arbitrary command execution through XML-RPC and SQL injection)


phpWebSite uses an XML-RPC library that improperly handles XML-RPC
requests and responses with malformed nested tags. Furthermore,
"matrix_killer" reported that phpWebSite is vulnerable to an SQL
injection attack.

Impact

A malicious remote user could exploit this vulnerability to inject
arbitrary PHP script code into eval() statements by sending a specially
crafted XML document, and also inject SQL commands to access the
underlying database directly.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
