Mambo Open Source Multiple Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to change mos_user_template cookie in Mambo Open Source

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
several issues.

Description :

The remote installation of Mambo Open Source fails to sanitize input
to the 'mos_user_template' cookie before using it to include PHP code
from a file. An unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this
issue to view arbitrary files or to execute arbitrary PHP code on the
affect host.

In addition, the application suffers from a similar lack of sanitation
of input to the 'username' parameter in the 'includes/mambo.php'
script, the 'task' parameter in 'index2.php', and the 'filter'
parameter in 'components/com_content/content.php' before using it in
SQL statements. Provided PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is
disabled, a possible hacker can leverage these issues to manipulate database
queries and, for example, log in as any user, including an admin.
