PHPAUCTION Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3055


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


The remote host is running PHPAUCTION, a web-based auction portal. This version of PHPAUCTION is vulnerable to multiple injection flaws. The application fails to properly sanitize user input and, consequently, is prone to remote attacks. The attacks include HTML injection as well as SQL injection. An attacker exploiting these flaws would only need to be able to send malformed HTTP requests to the application. Successful exploitation would result in possible database compromise or arbitrary code being executed either on the server or within an unsuspecting user's browser.


No solution is known at this time.
