Geeklog Admin Authentication SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to bypass administrative authentication in Geeklog

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
an authentication bypass issue.

Description :

The remote host is running Geeklog, an open-source weblog powered by
PHP and MySQL.

The version of Geeklog installed on the remote fails to sanitize input
to the 'loginname' and 'passwd' parameters before using it in the
script 'admin/auth.inc.php' to construct database queries. Provided
PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is enabled, an unauthenticated
attacker can exploit this flaw to bypass authentication and gain
administrative access.
