Description


rgod has discovered some vulnerabilities in Utopia News Pro, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.

1) Input passed to the "sitetitle" parameter in "header.php", and the "version" and "query_count" parameters in "footer.php" isn't properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

Successful exploitation requires that "register_globals" is enabled.

The vulnerabilities have been confirmed in versions 1.1.3 and 1.1.4. Other versions may also be affected.

2) Input passed to the "newsid" parameter in "news.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.

Successful exploitation requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 1.1.3. Prior versions may also be affected.


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