Freestyle Testimonials Component for Joomla! Unspecified SQLi

high Nessus Plugin ID 62939


The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a SQL injection vulnerability.


The version of the Freestyle Testimonials component for Joomla! running on the remote host is affected by an unspecified SQL injection vulnerability due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input before using it to construct database queries. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to manipulate database queries, resulting in disclosure of sensitive information, modification of data, or other attacks against the underlying database.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the component's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Freestyle Testimonials version or later.
