The Vulnerability Laboratory Research Team discovered multiple different
web vulnerabilites in GuestBook Scripts PHP 1.5 CMS.
2012-06-11: Public or Non-Public Disclosure
Multiple SQL Injection vulnerabilities are detected in the GuestBook
Scripts PHP 1.5 Content Management System.
The vulnerability allows an attacker (remote) or local low privileged
user account to inject/execute own sql
commands on the affected application dbms without user inter action.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability
results in dbms & application compromise. The vulnerabilities are
located in the guestbook.php or admin.php files
and the bound parameters p, orderType & orderBy. The sql injection
vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers without user
inter action & without privileged user account.
Multiple non persistent cross site scripting vulnerabilities are
detected in the GuestBook Scripts PHP 1.5 Content Management System.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to hijack website customer,
moderator or admin sessions with high required user inter action
or local low privileged user account. The vulnerabilities are located in
the admin.php file with the bound vulnerable search, p &
ordertype parameters. Successful exploitation can result in account
steal, phishing & client-side content request manipulation.
Proof of Concept:
The SQL Injection vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers
with and without privileged user account.
User inter action is not required for exploitation. For demonstration or
The persistent vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attackers
without privileged user account & with low
required user inter action. For demonstration or reproduce ...
