AmnPardaz Security Research Team have discovered two vulnerabilities in bloofoxCMS, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information or to conduct SQL injection attacks.
1) Input passed to the "username" parameter in admin/index.php is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability allows e.g. logging in as administrator without valid administrator credentials, but requires that "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.
2) Input passed to the "file" parameter in file.php is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to download arbitrary files through directory traversal attacks and sending the correct "Referer" HTTP header.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 0.3. Prior versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 0.3.1.
