OrangeHRM txtUserName SQL Injection Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to bypass OrangeHRM's authentication

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a SQL
injection vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running OrangeHRM, a human resource management
system written in PHP.

The version of OrangeHRM installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'txtUserName' parameter of the 'login.php'
script before using it in a database query. An unauthenticated remote
attacker may be able to leverage this flaw to manipulate SQL queries
and, for example, bypass authentication, uncover sensitive
information, modify data, or even launch attacks against the
underlying database.

Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' be disabled.
