Description


Cr@zy_King has discovered a vulnerability in Powie pNews, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection attacks.

Input passed to the "shownews" parameter in index.php is not properly sanitised before being used in an 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 is confirmed in version 2.10 and reported in version 2.08. Other versions may also be affected.
