PHPNews < 1.3.0 auth.php Multiple Field 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 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. An attacker can exploit this flaw to affect database queries, possibly revealing sensitive information, launching attacks against the underlying database, and the like.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.3.0 or higher.
