PostNuke < 0.760 RC3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a script that is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack.

Description

The remote host is running PostNuke version 0.760 RC2 or older. These versions suffer from several vulnerabilities, among them :

*) SQL injection vulnerability in the News, NS-Polls and NS-AddStory modules. *) SQL injection vulnerability in the Downloads module. *)Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the Downloads module. *) Possible path disclosure vulnerability in the News module.

An attacker may use the SQL injection vulnerabilities to obtain the password hash for the administrator or to corrupt the database used by PostNuke.

Exploiting the XSS flaws may enable an attacker to inject arbitrary script code into the browser of site administrators leading to disclosure of session cookies.
