OrangeHRM < 2.1 alpha 5 login.php txtUserName Parameter SQL Injection

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3928


The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a SQL injection vulnerability.


The remote host is running OrangeHRM, a human resource management system written in PHP. The version of OrangeHRM installed on the remote host fails to sanitize input to the 'txtUserName' parameter of the 'login.php' script before using it in a database query. An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to leverage this flaw to manipulate SQL queries and bypass authentication, uncover sensitive information, modify data, or launch attacks against the underlying database.

Note that successful exploitation of this issue requires that PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' be disabled.


Upgrade to version 2.1 alpha 5 or higher.
