phpMyFAQ < 1.6.0 SQL Injection (deprecated)

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2675

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a script that is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack.

Description

The remote host is running phpMyFAQ, a web-based Frequently-Asked-Questions (FAQ) application. This version of phpMyFAQ is vulnerable to a remote SQL injection attack. An attacker exploiting this flaw would send a specially crafted HTTP request to the application. Upon parsing the request, the server would be coerced into running commands embedded within the request. A successful attack would give the attacker the ability to view data, modify data, and potentially execute systems commands with the permission of the web server.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.6.0 or higher.
