Geeklog < 1.3.12 comment.php order Parameter SQL Injection

High

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a script that is vulnerable to a SQL injection attack.

Description

The remote host is running Geeklog, an open-source weblog powered by PHP and MySQL. The installed version of Geeklog suffers from a SQL injection vulnerability due to the application's failure to sanitize user-supplied input via the 'order' parameter of the 'comment.php' script. By leveraging this flaw, an attacker may be able to recover sensitive information, such as password hashes, launch attacks against the underlying database, and more.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.3.12 or higher.
