Vulnerability Assessment Details
Tries to inject SQL code via Pixelpost's showimage parameter
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote web server contains a PHP application that suffers from
The remote host is running Pixelpost, a photo blog application based
on PHP and MySQL.
The version of Pixelpost installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'showimage' 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 inject arbitrary SQL code and thereby uncover
sensitive information such as authentication credentials, launch
attacks against the underlying database application, etc.
In addition, the application reportedly contains a similar SQL
injection flaw involving the 'USER_AGENT', 'HTTP_REFERER' and
'HTTP_HOST' variables used in 'includes/functions.php', a cross-site
scripting issue involving the comment, name, url, and email values
when commenting on a post, and an information disclosure flaw
involving direct requests to 'includes/phpinfo.php'.
