Nagios XI < 2012R2.4 tfPassword Parameter SQL Injection

high Nessus Plugin ID 71636


The remote host has a web application that is affected by a SQL injection vulnerability.


The remote web server hosts a version of Nagios Core Config Manager, a modified version of NagiosQL for Nagios XI, and is affected by a SQL injection vulnerability. The vulnerability exists in the 'functions/prepend_adm.php' script, which fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input to the 'tfPassword' 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 Nagios XI 2012R2.4 or later.
