Mambo < 4.6.2 includes/pdf.php dofreePDF Function Authentication Bypass
Low Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 3981
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to a flaw that allows for the bypassing of authentication.
DescriptionThe remote host is running the Mambo Content Server, an application for generating dynamic content for web servers. The remote application is vulnerable to a flaw where remote attackers can gain access to the data hosted on the Mambo database. The root of the flaw stems from a lack of authentication and authorization by the 'pdf.php' application. In order to exploit this flaw, an attacker would only need to be able to send data to the 'pdf.php' application. Successful exploitation would result in a potential loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability on the remote database server.
SolutionUpgrade to version 4.6.2 or higher.
