Zabbix Web Interface popup_bitem.php itemid Parameter SQL Injection

high Nessus Plugin ID 62757


The remote web server hosts a PHP application that is prone to a SQL injection attack.


The remote web server hosts a version of the Zabbix web interface that is affected by a SQL injection vulnerability. The vulnerability exists in the 'popup_bitem.php' script, which fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input to the 'itemid' parameter before using it in database queries. This could allow an attacker to manipulate such queries, resulting in manipulation or disclosure of arbitrary data.


Upgrade to version 1.8.15rc1 / 2.02rc1 / 2.1.0 or later.
