Help Center Live Multiple Vulnerabilities (2)

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for multiple vulnerabilities (2) in Help Center Live

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that suffers from
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote host is running Help Center Live, a help desk written in
PHP that suffers from multiple vulnerabilities:

- Multiple SQL Injection Vulnerabilities
The application fails in many cases to sanitize user-
supplied input before using it in database queries. As
long as PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is 'off', an
attacker can exploit these flaws to uncover sensitive
information such as user's names and password hashes.

- Multiple Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities.
There are several ways that a possible hacker can inject
arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser
via the affected application. By exploiting them, an
attacker can not only steal cookies but also cause a
logged-in admin to perform arbitrary requests.
