Mambo Open Source usercookie Parameter SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to bypass authentication in Mambo Open Source

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

The remote installation of Mambo Open Source fails to sanitize input
to the 'usercookie' cookie array before using it in a database query
to authenticate a user. Provided PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is
disabled, a possible hacker may be able to exploit this issue to manipulate
database queries and, for example, bypass authentication and gain
administrative access to the affected application.
