PHPlist Input Validation Flaws Permit Cross-Site Scripting and SQL Injection Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1027181
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1027181
CVE Reference:   CVE-2012-2740, CVE-2012-2741   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jun 18 2012
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 2.10.18
Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in PHPlist. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote authenticated user can inject SQL commands.

The 'public_html/lists/admin' pages do not properly validate user-supplied input in the 'sortby' parameter [CVE-2012-2740]. A remote authenticated administrative user can supply a specially crafted parameter value to execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

The 'public_html/lists/admin' pages do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the 'num' parameter before displaying the input [CVE-2012-2741]. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the PHPlist software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
