Synopsis

Joomla! 3.7.x < 3.7.1 fields.php getListQuery() Method SQLi

Description

According to its self-reported version number, the detected Joomla! application is affected by a SQL injection vulnerability in the fields.php script due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to inject or manipulate SQL queries in the back-end database, resulting in the disclosure or modification of arbitrary data.
