OrangeHRM < 2.5.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5531


The remote host is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors


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 multiple forms which would allow an attacker to insert HTML, execute cross-site-scripting (XSS) attacks, execute SQL injection attacks, and execute arbitrary commands. In all instances, code/commands would be executed with the privileges of the web process.


Upgrade to version 2.5.5 or higher when available. In the interim, either disable the service or only allow trusted users access to the application.
