Coppermine Gallery SQL Injection
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2846
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a SQL Injection attack.
DescriptionThe remote host is running CopperMine Gallery, a set of PHP scripts to handle galleries of pictures. There is a flaw in this version of Coppermine Gallery. Specifically, the remote user's cookie is not properly parsed for SQL special characters. An attacker exploiting this flaw would send a malicious cookie to the Coppermine application. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker being able to read and write sensitive database data as well as potentially executing arbitrary code on the remote database.
SolutionUpgrade to Coppermine greater than 1.3.2.
