FreeBSD : mambo -- multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities (8a5770b4-54b5-11db-a5ae-00508d6a62df)

High Nessus Plugin ID 55439


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


James Bercegay reports :

Mambo is vulnerable to an Authentication Bypass issue that is due to a SQL Injection in the login function. The SQL Injection is possible because the $passwd variable is only sanitized when it is not passed as an argument to the function.

Omid reports :

There are several sql injections in Mambo 4.6 RC2 & Joomla 1.0.10 (and maybe other versions) :

- When a user edits a content, the 'id' parameter is not checked properly in /components/com_content/content.php, which can cause 2 sql injections.

- The 'limit' parameter in the administration section is not checked.
This affects many pages of administration section

- In the administration section, while editing/creating a user, the 'gid' parameter is not checked properly.


Update the affected package.
