Owl Intranet Engine < 0.91 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3729


The remote web server contains a PHP application that is prone to several issues.


The remote host is running Owl Intranet Engine, a web-based document management system written in PHP. The version of Owl Intranet Engine on the remote host fails to sanitize input to the session ID cookie before using it in a database query. Provided PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is disabled, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to uncover sensitive information such as password hashes, modify data, launch attacks against the underlying database, and more. In addition, the application reportedly suffers from at least one cross-site scripting (XSS) issue.


Upgrade or patch according to vendor recommendations.
