Phorum Input Validation Bugs in 'read.php' Let Remote Users Inject SQL Commands and Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1011921
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1011921
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Oct 26 2004
Original Entry Date:  Oct 25 2004
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Version(s): 5.0.11
Description:   Some input validation vulnerabilities were reported in Phorum. A remote user can inject SQL commands. A remote user can also conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Positive Technologies reported that the software does not properly validate user-supplied input.

A remote user can supply specially crafted input to execute SQL commands on the underlying database. A demonstration exploit URL is of the following format:

/read.php?1,[SQL CODE HERE],newer

A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Phorum 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.

Impact:   A remote user can execute SQL commands on the underlying database.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Phorum software, 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.

Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
