Moodle 1.9.x < 1.9.18 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote web server is hosting a web application that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote web server hosts Moodle, an open-source course management system. Versions of Moodle 1.9.x prior to 1.9.18 are exposed to the following vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists that allows a remote cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate certain input upon submission to the 'blog/index.php' script. This may allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between their browser and the server. (CVE-2012-2362) - A flaw exists that may allow an attacker to carry out an SQL injection attack. The issue is due to certain input when adding calendar events not being properly sanitized before it is used in SQL queries. This may allow an attacker to inject or manipulate SQL queries in the back-end database, allowing for the manipulation or disclosure of arbitrary data. (CVE-2012-2363)

Solution

Upgrade to Moodle version 1.9.18 or later.
