PHPNews < 1.2.6 news.php prevnext Parameter SQL Injection



The remote host is vulnerable to a SQL Injection attack.


The remote host is running PHPNews, an open-source news application written in PHP. The installed version of PHPNews is prone to a SQL injection attack due to its failure to sanitize user-supplied input via the 'prevnext' parameter of the 'news.php' script. An attacker can exploit this flaw to affect database queries, possibly revealing sensitive information, launching attacks against the underlying database, and more.


Upgrade to version 1.2.6 or higher.
