Description


Aliaksandr Hartsuyeu has discovered a vulnerability in WebspotBlogging, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

Input passed to the "username" parameter in "login.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.

This can further be exploited to bypass the authentication process and access the administration section where PHP code reportedly can be injected via the "Import Themes" functionality.

The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 3.0. Prior versions are reportedly also affected.


Solution:
Update to version 3.01.
