sBLOG <= 0.7.2 search.php keyword Parameter SQL Injection
Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3528
SynopsisThe remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to SQL injection attacks.
DescriptionThe remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to SQL injection attacks. The remote host is running sBLOG, a PHP-based blog application. The installed version of sBLOG fails to validate user input to the 'keyword' parameter of the 'search.php' script before using it to generate database queries. Regardless of PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting, an unauthenticated attacker can leverage this issue to manipulate database queries to bypass authentication, disclose sensitive information, modify data, or launch attacks against the underlying database.
