Mambo < 4.6.1 Login Function usercookie Cookie SQL Injection

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a SQL Injection attack.

Description

The remote host is running the Mambo Content Server, an application for generating dynamic content for web servers. The remote application is vulnerable to a flaw where remote attackers can execute arbitrary SQL commands on the database server utilized by Mambo. In order to exploit this flaw, an attacker would only need to send a malformed HTTP query containing SQL commands to the 'Name' field of the 'Submit Weblink' form. Successful exploitation would result in a potential loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability on the remote database server.

Solution

Upgrade to version 4.6.1 or higher.
