Joomla! 'Jfaq' Component SQL Injection and HTML Injection Vulnerabilities

The Joomla! 'Jfaq' component is prone to multiple SQL-injection vulnerabilities and an HTML-injection vulnerability because it fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied input.

An attacker may leverage the HTML-injection issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This may allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, control how the site is viewed, and launch other attacks.

The attacker may exploit the SQL-injection issues to compromise the application, access or modify data, or exploit latent vulnerabilities in the underlying database.

Jfaq 1.2 is reported vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
