SPIP < 1.8.2-g Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 20978
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote web server has a PHP application that is affected by multiple flaws.


The remote host is running SPIP, an open source CMS written in PHP.

The remote version of this software is prone to SQL injection and cross-site scripting attacks. An attacker could send specially crafted URL to modify SQL requests, for example, to obtain the admin password hash, or execute malicious script code on the remote system.


Upgrade to SPIP version 1.8.2-g or later.
