Description


matrix_killer has discovered some vulnerabilities in PHPFreeNews, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

1) Input passed to the "Match" and "CatID" parameters in SearchResults.php isn't properly sanitised before being used in a SQL query. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

2) Input passed to the "NewsMode" and "Match" parameters in SearchResults.php and NewsCategoryForm.php isn't properly sanitised before being returned to users. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of a vulnerable site.

The vulnerabilities have been confirmed in version 1.40. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
