Vulnerability Assessment Details
Tries to exploit SQL injection issue in Pixelpost
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to SQL
The remote host is running Pixelpost, a photo blog application based
on PHP and MySQL.
The version of Pixelpost installed on the remote fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'category' parameter of the 'index.php'
script before using it to construct database queries. Provided PHP's
'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is disabled, an unauthenticated attacker
can exploit this flaw to manipulate database queries and, for example,
uncover the administrator's username and password hash, which can
later be used to gain administrative access to the affected
In addition, Pixelpost reportedly suffers from a similar issue
involving the 'archivedate' parameter of the 'index.php' script.
