Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Buddy Zone, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion and SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed to the "about_me", "like_to_meet", "interests", "music", "movies", "television", "heroes", and "book" form field parameters when editing a profile, the "testimonial" form field parameter when adding a testimonial, the "body" form field parameter when adding a blog comment, the "subject" and "message" form field parameters when sending a message, the "group_name" form field parameter when creating a group, and the "event_name" and "long_description" form field parameters when creating an event is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious content is viewed.
Also postings in the forum are reportedly not properly sanitised.
2) Input passed to the "cat_id" parameter in view_classifieds.php, the "id" parameter in view_ad.php, the "event_id" and "cat_id" parameters in view_event.php, the "news_id" in view_news.php, the "member_id" parameter in video_gallery.php, the "cat_id" in view_sub_cat.php, and the "group_id" parameter in view_group.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 1.0.1 or 1.5. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Apply patch, which fixes some of the vulnerabilities.
